Cold Iron Studios has released a new minor update for Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Patch introduced the new Quick Play mode that allows you and your buddies to queue up for any missions in the campaign. This new mode is only available once you’ve finished the entire game.

In the last update, the Doc class has its Trauma Station ability improved in so many ways. This time, there is a bug fix that prevents an unintended notification to pop up, telling you that the Trauma Station is recharged even when you’ve already canceled the ability.

Those who are playing the game using ultra-wide monitors will be stoked to find that the developers made improvements to the ultra-wide support. Now, everything should fit nicely on the screen without things stretching out of proportion.

Anyway, there was a problem back then where characters with large save files cannot be properly loaded into a mission. You may have encountered this at some point, which may have caused frustration, but the good news is that this has been resolved in this patch.

You may have also noticed that you were unable to use Aid Kits when you are in firing range of a damaged turret. This is a huge problem if you do not have a Doc in your team and this is not an intended design. Once you’ve applied the update, you can now use Aid Kits whenever you need to.
