Aliens: Fireteam is an upcoming cooperative third-person survival shooter game developed by Cold Iron Studios in collaboration with Disney's 20th Century Games. It is set in the iconic Alien universe and is the first Alien game since Alien: Isolation in 2014. It is also a standalone sequel to the original Alien trilogy.


Players will take on the role of a green Colonial Marine, alongside two other players or AI teammates, and will face off against overwhelming enemies. Over 20 alien types, including 11 Xenomorphs and deadly Weyland-Yutani synthetics, are designed with intelligence to outsmart the marines and provide an intense challenge for all players.


Although the odds are tough, the Colonial Marines are not left defenseless. A team of three players will be able to customize their fireteam and utilize an extensive arsenal of over 30 different weapons, including the standard-issue M41A Pulse Rifle, and more than 70 modifications and attachments which includes fragmentation grenades and new inventions like sticky shock grenades that stuns Xenomorphs in place.

Players will also be able to choose from five unique classes: Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon, each with their own unique abilities and character perks. Craig Zinkievich, head of Cold Iron Studios, said that each player has a role and classes are built with tactical synergies in mind.


The developers designed the game to be highly replayable and expect players to revisit the game's four campaigns, composed of three missions each campaign. The variety of Xenomorphs, multiple difficulty levels, and different class combinations will hopefully excite players to come back.

Aliens: Fireteam will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, Xbox One and Steam for Windows PC this summer 2021. You can also check out the announcement trailer below.
