Aliens Vs Predator (PS3 and Xbox 360): Patch update adds balancing and weapon tweaks

I’m sure this piece of news will be like an early Christmas present for owners of Aliens Vs Predator, as it has been confirmed that a patch update is on the way for the game – intended to fix up the series of issues affecting the multiplayer portion of the game.

As reported from VG247, Rebellion states that the update will affect the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, and will add balancing and weapon tweaks, along with a fix to stop issues related to XP when playing offline.

The developer also adds that Xbox 360 owners of the game, won’t have to wait as long to get into a match – so thats good news for you.

Personally, I hope the flamethrower has been sorted out. Thats one of the worst things about the game at the moment.

Let us know your thoughts on the patch. We’ll let you know when it is live.

    The sooner the better. I played the old AvP games for the PC, you know, when the Predators couldn't stay cloaked for ever because the cloak to energy to activate and keep on. Smart disc in the Xbox is annoying too. In campaign, I had to make a headshot with it or it took two throws to kill someone, in multyplayer it takes one throw. Then the fact it is "Smart" and follows me around corners half the time and kills me in multiplayer.

    Also there are people who wait till your about to claw them or hit them with your tail before throwing it. "Grabbing" should also be fixed. Instead of depending on health, their should be a mini button challenge, like Gears 2 chainsaw duels, were players press buttons as fast as they can to determine if the grabbed escapes it or gets his head removed, or in that span of time a team mate can save him. Grabs from behind should not be affected by this though and nither should campaing. Grabs from behind are also messed up too, as I have turned and looked at someone, hit them in the face, and they still grabbed me from behind. A Marine also has no grab attack, so maybe they could give him a knife and alow him to slit another players throat or something?

    In campaign I ran into aliens that spat acid at me, they should give that to the aliens in multiplayer, so everyone has a ranged, grab, and melee attack. As a marine, I also find that comming right out of block and starting to shoot causes my gun to stop, letting the alien kill me with his tail, why I don't know but I'm pretty sure guns don't jam after you block with them. These type of things are what I hope they fix, or at least make them so that they don't happen as often.

    I was so annoyed because I attempted to do that XP Glitch because lets face it, it takes AGES to rank up and then they patched it!
    FAIL FO' ME!

      they fixed it because people were getting the rank 43 the easy way your ment to earn it not cheap your way out but the thing about that patch which truly sucks is the fact people who got 43 by working for it suffered and lost ranks and skins

    the things they need to do is make the aliens health as much of the predator and instead of using energy to heal just look for the stim or whatever its calle and also a predator should not be able to grab an alien while the alien is sprinting like that happens a lot and predators can catch up to the alien that sucks like the have to make the alien run faster than the preds and longer also they have to mak ethe caster dodgeable and make sure it doesent follow you cause when i was playing for 360 and my freind had an alien locked on and it was running he shot and it still hit em also you have to make the alien knock down predator once u counter a light attack and when pouncing should knock down a marine and predator and make it able to spit acid for a projectile weapon

    ronny, some good points….. I think. Try to write in an understandable way, I'm not sure what country you are from but I found it very hard to understand you
