New ALIENS: FIRETEAM Video Game Coming To Consoles And PC This Summer

After years of speculation and rumor, fledgling game studio Cold Iron Studios has revealed their long-planned Alien project: a cooperative third-person shooter! Check out the announcement trailer!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into space, the Alien franchise is returning to video games.

Aliens: Fireteam is a cooperative third-person shooter from Cold Iron Studios, a newer game studio founded in 2015 which is home to former Star Trek Online and City of Heroes developers!

The plot, according to the press release, is as such: 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.

The game sounds promising, and the footage shown so far is reminiscent of the recent World War Z title from 2019. Fans have been clamouring for a new Alien game on consoles since Alien Isolation nearly a decade ago. Hopefully, when people actually get their hands on Fireteam, it'll be worth the wait! Fingers crossed.

In the meantime, check out the announcement teaser below!

Aliens: Fireteam releases sometime later this summer on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Steam!
