Aliens: Fireteam Announced as a Third-Person Co-Op Survival Shooter

By 2 months ago

Aliens: Fireteam is a third-person cooperative survival shooter set in one of pop culture’s biggest sci-fi horror franchises. The game comes from Cold Iron Studios, located in San Jose and composed of veteran game developers, in collaboration with 20th Century Games. It is set to arrive on Steam, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X | S this summer. Players must work together in squads of Colonial Marines as they fight for survival against swarms of Xenomorphs. Have a look at the eerie announcement trailer.

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.
