Cold Iron Studios and 20th Century Studios have announced Aliens: Fireteam for summer 2021. The game is considered a cooperative third-person survival shooter and is set in the Aliens universe. The game is currently slated to be released for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam.
The game takes place over two decades after the original film trilogy. The game puts players in the role of a Colonial Marine on the USS Endeavor. The crew is being sent to investigate a distress call from one of the outer colonies and lands to find “overrun facilities, abandoned ruins, and strange alien landscapes”. Players will travel through four campaigns and can do so cooperatively with two other players or with AI companions.
Facing over 20 intelligent enemy types – from Xenomorphs to Weyland-Yutani Synthetics – players must utilize cover tactics and master team strategy to eradicate extraterrestrial threats that swarm through doors and vents, scramble across walls and ceilings, and strike from the darkness with uncanny ferocity. Five character classes, an expansive arsenal of customizable weapons and mods, character progression, and innovative advancement systems help even the odds in this heart-pounding shooter and place Aliens: Fireteam in another dimension of co-op survival shooters. The unique Challenge Card system also lets players mutate each mission, offering a new experience with every playthrough.
