FOCUS Home Interactive, Cold Iron Studios and 20th Century Games have collaborated to bring a new third-person co-op survival shooter based in the Aliens Universe. Aliens: Fireteam has just been announced along with a scary reveal trailer. Set to hit stores in the coming months, Aliens: Fireteam introduces new storylines to the Aliens Universe.
As the title suggests, players can either play with friends or AI Colonial Marines as you mow down Xenomorph and Wyland-Yutani Synthetics. It introduces brand new storylines to the Aliens universe through four different campaigns. There are different classes to choose from as well as weapons, gear and perks.
This is a very different vibe than the Aliens franchise’s last video game title, Alien: Isolation, which focused more on stealth than action. From the trailer we can see it’ll be a lot more fast paced as players are chased by hoards of enemies.
“We are delighted to be helping bring this original title from the legendary Alien universe to fans,” said John Bert, Managing Director of Focus Home Interactive. “We were immediately taken in by the game and are very happy to collaborate with 20th Century Games and Cold Iron on this extremely ambitious project. We were quickly convinced of Cold Iron studio’s ability to create a unique and explosive experience.”
Aliens: Fireteam will be available for Playstation 5, Playstation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One.
