Greetings from Cold Iron Studios, a small, tight team of game industry veterans. On August 24, we launched our first game – Aliens: Fireteam Elite.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that takes place in the dark, dilapidated universe of the “Alien” films. You join a fireteam of Colonial Marines deployed to the Frontier to contain an evolving Xenomorph threat on the distant moon of LV-895.
This is no bug hunt for a single, isolated alien. The Xenomorphs have won, they’ve bred, and now you must hold off the might of the hive while completing your missions.
Your team of three must face swarms of Xenos and other unsettling foes across a series of replayable story campaigns. Battle a variety of foes, each with their own strengths and behaviors. Coordinate your gear and master group tactics to survive as hostile lifeforms seek to overrun your fireteam from every angle – flooding from doors and vents, racing across walls and ceilings, and striking from darkness with uncanny ferocity.
Aside from the appeal of fighting “perfect organisms, unclouded by delusions of morality,” Aliens: Fireteam Elite brings the depth you want from an entry in the popular genre of co-op shooters.
Your own Colonial Marine will start as a pretty fresh recruit or pair of boots, but as you and your Fireteam survive and complete more and more missions, you will gain experience – on your character, on your equipped Loadout Kit, and even on the specific weapons you carry! Keep fighting the good fight until you truly become an Elite Colonial Marine!
Successful missions also help you unlock new weapons, weapon attachments, abilities, bonuses, and cosmetic gear. Customize your Colonial Marine to fit your playstyle and aesthetic.
For those who prefer to play offline, alone, or as a duo, any vacant team positions are filled by combat android companions. While not as capable as a skilled human, they can see you through the game.
With a range of difficulty settings to satisfy both casual and hardcore players, daily and weekly Tactical Opportunities offering bonus rewards, and Challenge Cards that modify everything from the enemies encountered to the style of the graphics, missions never play the same way twice.
Xbox gamers enjoy an additional bonus — cross-gen play. Players on Xbox One can group with those on Xbox Series X|S. And should you later upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S, your game will continue to be compatible thanks to Smart Delivery.
Shipping this game is only the first step – afterwards, it will grow through regular additions of content.
Make sure to update Aliens: Fireteam Elite to its latest version to unlock the popular “Horde Mode” style of play after you complete all four campaigns. Challenge yourself by enduring escalating waves of Xenomorphs, for increasingly generous (and sometimes unique) rewards. Can you survive all ten waves… or beyond?
Our first Season of free game content will arrive on September 8, 2021, bringing with it a brand-new character Class, the Phalanx! Stay tuned for more information on this defense-oriented class. Along with it will also come new weapons and cosmetic rewards that players will be able to unlock via playing the game.
Coinciding with our first season, we will also launch the first DLC pack of the Endeavor Pass, containing an assortment of outfits, head accessories, weapon decals, weapon colors, emotes, and more, all of which can be purchased individually for $9.99. This pack is comparable to the Endeavor Veteran Pack included with the Deluxe edition of the game.
As “Season One” suggests, this is just the beginning. In the future you can expect regular, free gameplay content updates, with optional cosmetic bundles for purchase.
Aliens: Fireteam Elite is now available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S! Start recruiting your fireteam of ultimate badasses and climb aboard the express elevator to hell. Follow @AliensFireteamE on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest news on the game.
They’re waiting for you, in the dark, where starlight can’t reach.
