It’s been quite a while since the last (good) Aliens game but Cold Iron Studios may just have the thing to scratch that itch as Aliens: Fireteam has just been announced and it will be making its way to the PS4 / PS5, Xbox One / Series, and PC later in the Summer.
Dubbed as a third-person coop survival shooter, seemingly similar to back 4 blood, players will have to team up to “Survive the Hive”, and if the gameplay from this early trailer is anything to go by, then it’s looking to be pretty epic.
You can read the game description below courtesy of its Steam page:
2202. A mysterious distress call reroutes your Marine Assault Unit to LV-895 in the outer colonies, where deadly Xenomorph legions, hidden corporate secrets, and ancient alien ruins await your arrival.
Set in the iconic Alien universe, Aliens: Fireteam is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that drops your fireteam of hardened marines into a desperate fight to contain the Xenomorph threat.
Face off against waves of terrifying Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes alongside two players or AI teammates, as you and your fireteam desperately fight your way through four unique campaigns that introduce new storylines to the Alien universe. Create and customize your own Colonial Marine, choosing from an extensive variety of classes, weapons, gear and perks, battling overwhelming odds in this heart-pounding survival shooter experience.
The Ultimate Hunt – Play a pivotal role in the epic events that occur 23 years after the original Alien trilogy as a Colonial Marine stationed aboard the USS Endeavor, battling terrifying Xenomorph threats. Stunning visuals, iconic enemies, realistic environments, powerful weapons, futuristic equipment, and an eerie soundscape fill out new storylines in a series of replayable campaigns that evoke and expand upon the blockbuster films.
Survive the Hive – Face overwhelming odds against over 20 enemy types, including 11 different Xenomorphs along the evolutionary scale from Facehuggers to Praetorians, each designed with their own intelligence to ambush, outsmart and eviscerate vulnerable marines. Utilize cover and master team strategy to survive extraterrestrial threats as they overrun your fireteam from every angle, swarm through doors and vents, scramble across walls and ceilings, and strike from darkness with uncanny ferocity.
Customize Your Fireteam – Choose from five unique classes—Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon—each with their own special abilities and character perks. Utilize an extensive arsenal of 30+ weapons and over 70 mods / attachments in your effort to eradicate the Alien threat. An innovative Perk Board modifies and improves your abilities, while a unique Challenge Card system alters the approach to each Campaign mission, offering a new experience with every playthrough.
