California-based Cold Iron Studios have unveiled their debut title, Aliens: Fireteam, a cooperative third-person shooter set within the Alien universe.
There are five classes to choose from - Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon – and more than 30 weapons available (including the iconic Pulse Rifle and Smart Gun) which can be further modified with attachments.
An “innovative” perk system offers further refinement of playstyle by modifying and improving player abilities, while the game’s Challenge Card system is said to “offer a new experience with each playthrough” by altering the approach to each mission.
The game also features over 20 enemy types, including Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes and “11 different Xenomorphs along the evolutionary scale from Facehuggers to Praetorians.” Each enemy type has its own methods to try and outsmart players.
There’s no solid release date just yet, though Aliens: Fireteam is targeting a summer 2021 release window for Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC via Steam.
