Dimapur, Mar. 2 (EMN):Aliens: Fireteam‘ is a new third-person co-op survival shooter game by Cold Iron Studios that will hit consoles and PC this summer.

Aliens: Fireteam‘ will let players fill the boots of a US colonial marine, and let them choose between five classes: Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon. The game is set in 2202, 23 years after the events of the original trilogy. Fireteam will have RPG elements like character classes with skill-trees and weapon modifications but it should not be considered as an MMO.

Aliens: Fireteam is a third-person squad-based shooter with an emphasis on co-op tactics as players face off waves of 20 different enemy types — including 11 different Xenomorphs.

Cold Iron Studios have been working on the game for more than six years and we can’t wait to get our hands on the finished product. Cold Iron Studios says that it has designed the game to be highly replayable. Unlike 2014’s Alien: Isolation, a first-person stealth-based survival game, ‘Aliens: Fireteam‘ is going to be an online-only co-op survival shooter with four story-driven campaigns — which players can replay with different difficulty levels and challenge cards.

Aliens: Fireteam players will have to level up their character to unlock new weapons, abilities, and customizations over time. The studio says that the game will provide players with more than 30 weapons to choose from along with more than 70 mods and attachments.

Aliens: Fireteam‘ is due to hit PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, sometime in summer 2021.

Here is the official description of Aliens: Fireteam via Steam:



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.

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.

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 the darkness with uncanny ferocity.

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 70+ mods/attachments in your effort to eradicate the Alien threat.
