Cold Iron Studios’ new Alien game has finally been unveiled! Aliens: Fireteam is a cooperative third-person survivor shooter set in the year 2202, 23 years after the events of the Alien trilogy. Players will assume the role of a a Colonial Marine stationed aboard the USS Endeavor. You’ll play through four campaigns compromising of three missions.
You’ll encounter 20 different enemy variations, including 11 different Xenomorphs types from Facehuggers to Praetorians, each designed with their own intelligence to ambush, outsmart and ultimately take down any marines. There’ll be five unique classes – Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon – each with their own special abilities and character perks. Players will be able to select from over 30 weapons and over 70 mods/attachments.
You can check out the action-packed trailer and screenshots below:
You play as a newly recruited member of the United States Colonial Marines. You create your own soldier and choose from one of five classes (gunner, demolisher, recon, technician, and doc), each with their own combat roles. For example, technicians can deploy portable turrets to lock down hallways or provide additional support fire; docs can provide their teammates with temporary buffs and healing; and so on. Players can further customize their characters with different cosmetics, weapon upgrades, unlocked perks, and more. It doesn’t appear to be a crazy deep amount of RPG-style tinkering, but it seems as though Cold Iron has been developing Fireteam with an eye toward replayablity.
Be sure to check out Game Informer for their full preview of the game. The official website for the shooter is AliensFireTeam.com. It appears we’ll get full gameplay footage on Thursday. Cold Iron Studios says that Aliens: Fireteam will be coming to PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC this summer! What does everybody think? Will you be picking up the game upon its release? Let us know in the comments.
