The new 1.02 patch for Alien: Isolation seems to be causing some problems with gamers trying to advance through the game’s fifth mission. While that stinks, it doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to play the game while Sony cooks up a fix for this unfortunate turn of events. Just follow these few simple steps from the game’s official forums and you’ll return to being scared out of your wits by Xenomorphs in no time.
- Uninstall Alien: Isolation from your PS4, taking care to retain your save games.
- Reinstall Alien: Isolation to your PS4.
- Download and install patch v1.01 from the PlayStation Network.
Once you get back into the game everything should be working fine. Hopefully the problem will be fixed with a new patch in the near future, but this simple workaround should keep everyone happy for the time being.
