Load up your laser guns, because Aliens: Fireteam is coming to consoles this summer!

This new 20th Century Studios and Cold Iron Studios video game collaboration is a co-op, third-person survival shooter based in the ominous Alien universe. Aliens: Fireteam drops players aboard the USS Endeavor as Colonial Marines. They are tasked with answering distress calls from outer colonies, overrunning facilities, and exploring abandoned ruins and alien landscapes as they battle hordes of creatures such as Facehuggers and Praetorians. These monsters can surround a base and scramble through vents and ceilings, so marines must stay vigilant!

Replayable Aliens: Fireteam missions heighten the original Alien storyline while packing on powerful weapons, futuristic equipment, and new extraterrestrial landscapes. Players can fight in four campaigns alongside two friends or AI teammates while encountering more than 20 intelligent enemy types. Five character classes are available to choose from — Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon — with each carrying their own special abilities and perks. More than 30 customizable weapons and 70 mods exist at players’ disposal to eradicate alien threats in the game. The Aliens: Fireteam Challenge Card system also allows players to mutate each mission for a different experience in every playthrough.
