A 3.8GB update for Aliens: Colonial Marines on PC is now rolling out on Steam. This update contains the changes that were in the recent update for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions, along with some additional changes that will be part of future updates for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. This update also includes several PC-specific changes, notably: improved texture resolution, various visual improvements, the addition of a mouse smoothing option, and some fixes for PC-only crashes.

SEGA and Gearbox have been working to identify areas of improvement. Many fixes are already available now in today’s patch, and console versions of these updates will be made available as soon as possible. Thank you for all your feedback.
