Platforms: Xbox Series S/X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, PC
Release date: August 24
Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a survival shooter set 23 years after the original Alien movie trilogy, where you play as a Colonial Marine in the outer colonies fighting your way through a xenomorph hive.
You can team up with two friends, or two AI teammates, and face waves after wave of deadly xenomorphs as one of five different character classes. There’s plenty of enemy variety here too – there are 11 different types of xenomorphs, and as you progress through the game, each new variety you encounter has different abilities and poses a unique challenge to take down.
FTW played a preview build of Fireteam Elite, and while Aliens fans will find enjoyment solo, the game is best played with friends. The game adds replayability in the form of challenge cards, which act as difficulty modifiers that can make missions much more difficult or require specific playstyles.
