Cold Iron Studios’ upcoming co-op shooter Aliens: Fireteam seems to have received a slight name change. According to a listing on Best Buy (as pointed out by Wario 64 on Twitter), it’s now called Aliens: Fireteam Elite and set to release on August 24th. It also costs $39.99 across all platforms and as the PS4 listing indicates, there’s a free upgrade option to the PS5 option.
The developer has yet to confirm the release date or price point so expect an official announcement in the coming days. Aliens: Fireteam Elite is set in, surprise, the Alien universe and places you in command of a Marine Assault Unit. When a distress signal emerges from LV-895 in the outer colonies, it’s up to you to slay Xenomorphs, either alone with AI teammates or two other players in co-op.
Along with different weapons and perks, there are different class abilities like an AoE blast, auto-turret and so on. Over 20 different enemy types await with Xenomorph Drones, Runners and Spitters to tackle. Aliens: Fireteam Elite is coming to Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Xbox One.
