San Jose-based game studio Cold Iron Studios, composed of veteran action and shooter developers, in collaboration with 20th Century Games, have just revealed Aliens: Fireteam, a new cooperative third-person survival shooter set within the Alien universe. And you can check out the upcoming game’s first trailer right now! More details from the press release follow below:
Set 23 years after the original Alien trilogy, Aliens: Fireteam drops players into the role of a Colonial Marine aboard the USS Endeavor, recently tasked with answering a distress call from the outer colonies. Deploy to overrun facilities, abandoned ruins, and strange alien landscapes as you battle terrifying enemies across four campaigns with two friends or AI teammates. Stunning visuals, realistic environments, powerful weapons, futuristic equipment, and an eerie soundscape heighten new Alien storylines across a series of replayable missions that evoke and expand upon the blockbuster films.
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 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.
Aliens: Fireteam, scheduled for worldwide release in Summer 2021 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation5, PlayStation4 and Steam, has not yet been rated by the ESRB. Additional information can be found on Facebook, Twitter, Discord, YouTube, or the official website at www.AliensFireteam.com.
