While the plethora of Alien games came and gone, fans were certainly hungry for more after the launch of Alien: Isolation. Despite the response being fairly positive, a definitive sequel has yet to be released. While a follow-up for mobile devices ended up releasing later on, players look elsewhere for what could be the next hit for the beloved film franchise.
Earlier this year, Cold Iron Studios unveiled Aliens: Fireteam Elite. In a campaign-orchestrated fashion, players will find hordes of foes including the starring Xenomorphs and synthetic adversaries out for blood. It wasn’t until this past August that Aliens: Fireteam Elite launched for all major platforms.
On Tuesday, Cold Iron Studios announces that Aliens: Fireteam Elite is to ship for Xbox Game Pass later on December 14 for both console and PC versions of the service.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite will be available with Xbox Game Pass on both Xbox and Windows 10! This also means cross play will be available between all Xbox and PC players who install via the Microsoft Store version of the game.Christopher Honour, Cold Iron Studios Community Manager
“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,” the synapse for the game shares.
“Season 2: Point Defense will bring a content patch that includes the new Point Defense game mode, a new Lifetime Stats feature, as well as 4 new weapons (a Rifle, Hand Gun, CQW, and Heavy Weapon). It will also bring an assortment of new attachments, new weapon colorways and decals, new head accessories, new emotes, and even new Challenge Cards to bring a unique twist to your next missions.”
