ALIENS: FIRETEAM Is One Terrifying Nightmare
The Alien franchise making a comeback in the gaming industry and this time around it is taking its shot at the 4-player co-op that’s been tied to series’ such as Left 4 Dead and Zombie Army. Aliens: Fireteam will be released this summer. While it’s not clear how this game directly combines with the movies or even the games of the franchise, it’s sure to be one amazing game and a terrifying one, to say the least.
The story is set around a group of Colonial Marines who are stationed aboard the USS Endeavor. It takes place 23 years after the first 3 movies of the series and these characters will play a crucial role in driving the story forward. You’ll be able to pick from the 5 playable classes that are, Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon. Each one has its own set of special skills and perks. You can customize them as well with more than 30 weapons and 70 mods/attachments.
Having your character at their best is a must if you want to remain in the game and against the 20 unique enemy types within the game. That will include the 11 different Xenomoporhs on the scale of evolution from Facehuggers to Praetorians, this is going to be a true nightmare for sure! The devs at Cold Iron Studios have also made their AI is very good at what it does to try deceiving players and surprise attack them whenever they can. I love such co-op shooters and can’t wait to get my hands on one that includes the Xenomorphs!
Aliens: Fireteam will come out this summer on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC via Steam.
