    I thought this game waws dead - are people still playing it?
    I love ALiens as much as any fan but they killed this game before it was even released. I did enjoy it enough to play SP campaign once and about 30 minutes of MP (when I could actually connect to a game. I spent more time trying to connect then actually playing so I have given up.

    PS3 community still thriving; just gotta know what time players are on.

    Got the season pass for the PS3 and downloaded from the PS Store. Weird thing is that while the first DLC had to be downloaded directly from the game, now you can do it from the  store for the second DLC. The new maps are nice. I just checked them in offline mode and discovered a hidden Boiler in the Off The Grid Survivor map, atop the big crane at the center of the map.

    The new skins an other customisation stuff is also great. I suspect the next DLC will have new Xeno themed levels and more marine customisation options...

    I'm on PC, and I got in some team deathmatch and survivor today with about 3 people in a private game, and the new maps are definitely fun.

    However, we could not match up with anyone for a public game yet. Plus the fact that you can't start a public game with a 3-person party is garbage. It seems you need at least 4 people in your party to open a public session.

    The matchmaking interface in this game is just so poorly thought out.

    Anyone on PC who wants to play, shoot me a Steam request:

    So it's available through the Xbox Live Marketplace but not in-game, so Season Pass holders can't access it. At least in the US that's the story. Anyone having a similar issue?

    Oh modders, where art thou?
    Without SDK there's little to none that can be done with the game.

    Skins can already be done... I just don't have the skill.
    Skins can't change the gampeplay.

    Can you complain about one thing at a time? I find it hard to keep up.

    Forlorn hope that they may have done a set of movie-true heads and skins based on the drones in each film (Alien, Aliens, Alien 3, Alien Resurrection, AVP, AVP:R). Hell, I wouldn't even mind versions based on the Newborn, Predalien, or Deacon.

    Oh modders, where art thou?

    This is why I never purchase games for their multi-player content. With content you know is decent for single-player, it's more or less future-proofed for as long as you own a compatible system.
