Alekhine’s Gun, the spiritual successor to Death to Spies, had a rocky launch. The game shipped in quite the mess and it was almost impossible to complete levels due to horrid stealth mechanics. However, there’s a new patch out, so let’s see if it fixes any of the big problems.

The v1.02 update delivers a whole series of gameplay enhancements and bug fixes, including:

New features:

  • Full Game level statistics showing level rating & other info
  • Quick saves
  • Controller Y-axis inverting option
  • Autosaves on objective completion
  • New remote distracting device (Decoy)
  • Player backlighting switch option
  • Map zoom saving
  • All Levels balanced for Extreme difficulty (to get Ghost Rating).
  • Phantom Achievement not called in some situations
  • Chameleon Achievement not called because of missing disguise
  • Steam Achievements not always synchronized when playing offline
  • Machine gun flying when cook pouring drink in “Dogs of War” level
  • Russian localization errors
  • Stuck during exit from one of the ships in “Points on the Radar” level
  • French localization errors
  • Some crashes and other small errors

Alekhine’s Gun launched March 11 this year for PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Bad at video games, decent at writing.
