Rebellion's detailed an upcoming patch for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Aliens vs. Predator.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley said of the patch: "We've been overwhelmed with the response to AVP and want our fans to know if it's within our power to keep them happy through on-going support then we shall do so. Some things just can't be foreseen and it's great that we are able to respond to requests for modifications in this way."
