Report article RSS Feed Rebellion apologizes for Aliens vs. Predator demo issues

Patch released for PC fixed the problem where you had to wait long time to start a match. They apologized to all people that had this issue but its fixed now, so lets not blame them.

Posted by ElderPredator on Feb 6th, 2010

Lots of people were disappointed by the demo version but its quite a hard to under heavy pressure of the fans. And lets hope original version will be more pleasing for all people that do not prefer this demo version.Unprecedented demand for Aliens vs Predator following the release of the cross-platform demo yesterday morning brought to light matchmaking issues resulting in players having to wait to join games, or even not find games at all.

We’re pleased to say later in the day the issue was corrected and a small patch to the PC executable next time you launch it from Steam will have you finding and playing games using Quick Match as it was intended.

While this issue did not affect the Xbox 360, we are with SEGA’s assistance investigating reports of a similar nature on the PlayStation 3 and working flat out on a solution.

The full game features the ability to browse for and create games but for the purposes of simplicity the demo was limited to matchmaking, alongside the ability to set up groups with friends which mitigated yesterday’s issues for many.

We’re really sorry that this issue tainted a day in which we saw many people get hands on with AvP for the first time and we’re hugely gratified by the positive feedback to the game.
