Cold Iron Studios has been quietly working on a game based on the Alien IP for quite some time now. The game has been in the works for years now, having first been revealed in 2018. Since then, news has been quiet, but that changes today with the announcement of Aliens: Fireteam.
Cold Iron Studios has announced Aliens: Fireteam, a third-person, squad-based survival shooter. It sounds a lot like Left 4 Dead with Xenomorphs on paper, but there are some other elements to it that set it apart.
Aliens: Fireteam will be a fully online game with RPG elements in the form of character classes, skill trees and modifiable weapons, opening the door for character build experimentation. There are five character classes so far – gunner, demolisher, technician, doc and recon, each with their own abilities.
Aliens: Fireteam is releasing in ‘Summer 2021’ for PC (Steam), Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5. Cold Iron Studios has also said that there will be no microtransactions in the game.

KitGuru Says: After Alien Isolation, there has been a lot of demand for a new game based on the Alien IP. Hopefully this ends up doing the series justice. Are any of you looking forward to Aliens: Fireteam?
