Aliens: Fireteam is set 23 years after the events of the original Aliens movie trilogy and sees players board the USS Endeavor after receiving a distress call. You can play across four unique campaigns with friends (or AI teammates, if you’d prefer), all featuring sights and sounds that should be familiar to fans of the franchise.

Cold Iron promises 20 intelligent enemy types in Aliens: Fireteam, including 11 different kinds of Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani Synthetics. The game features five character classes — Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon — and more than 30 customizable weapons to choose from, and that doesn’t even include a Challenge Card system, which allows you to mutate missions to keep the experience varied.

Pricing and an exact release date have not been shared yet, so stay tuned for updates.
