Alienation patch and paid DLC incoming
Paid and free DLC for top down shooter will be out next week
Developers Housemarque have announced an upcoming patch for their shooter Alienation.
Local co-op play will be released to all players as part of the next free update that is scheduled to go live on July 5th. Local co-op supports up to four players on the same screen, and after opening loot crates, you’ll have to fight over who gets the loot.
The new update also introduces Leagues consisting of five ranks with each league cycle lasting for one week. Leagues allow you to climb the ladders and unlock additional bullet colors in the process. In addition to this, after updating the game, you will also find two new difficulty levels called Expert and Master, and a richer Arkship experience with new rooms, harder enemies, and better loot.
Also being released is paid content in the form of the Season Pass or the Survivor’s Pack, both out on July 5. The Survivor’s Pack includes the Vortex Grenade, a new piece of gear that sucks all enemies in its path into a kind of black hole, dealing constant damage to all enemies trapped within. In addition to this, all Primary weapons are available to all hero classes, and you will also have three exclusive bullet colors at your disposal. The Survivor’s Pack will be available to purchase for $5.99.
The Season Pass is also available to buy on July 5 for $9.99. For a single purchase you get the Survivor’s Pack as well as the upcoming Conqueror’s Pack, Veteran Heroes Pack, the original soundtrack, and a dynamic Theme. All at a discounted cost in comparison to buying this content individually.
Alienation was released exclusively on PS4 earlier this year.
