In addition to a new update that improves enemy AI and tweaks the campaign difficulty, the first DLC for Aliens: Colonial Marines—and potentially its only?—is now available on Xbox Live Marketplace.
Titled Stasis Interrupted, the DLC sheds light on the fate of Corporal Dwayne Hicks (played by Michael Biehn), who survived the events of Aliens, but was killed offscreen between Aliens and Alien 3.
“Waking up unexpectedly from hypersleep, Lisbeth and others must figure out why the spaceship they are on, the Legato, has been diverted to intercept the Sulaco leaving LV-426’s orbit,” reads the DLC’s description. “Fight your way through the alien infested spaceship, find out what Michael Weyland is after and discover what truly happened to Hicks.”
Stasis Interrupted is priced at 800 Microsoft Points ($10). Season Pass holders, of course, get it for free. The DLC has yet to launch on PC or PS3.
