Aliens: Fireteam Elite Bursts Onto PC, Consoles in August

Aliens: Fireteam Elite gets a slight name change and a release date. Let's rock!

Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the upcoming co op shooter from Cold Iron Studios previously known as just Aliens: Fireteam, will release on August 24 for PC, PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. 

Pre-orders for the third-person shooter are available for all platforms now. The base version will retail for $39.99. The Aliens: Fireteam Elite deluxe edition will retail for $69.99 and include two DLC cosmetic packs: the Endeavor Pass and the Endeavor Veteran Pack. 

These two packs will be available separately (presumably when the game launches) and include class skins, weapon skins, emotes, and other cosmetics. There's currently no word on how much each DLC pack will cost on its own. 

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is the first console shooter in the Aliens franchise since 2013's Colonial Marines. Set 23 years after the events of the Alien trilogy, Fireteam Elite will feature four campaigns that introduce brand new storylines to the Alien universe. 

Fireteam Elite can be played solo with AI-controlled teammates or with two other players through co op. Enemies include 11 Xenomorph types — such as the iconic facehugger and your rank and file warrior  as well as Weyland-Yutani Synthetics. 

As we previously reported, players will have more than 30 weapons to choose from, such as M4A1 Pulse Rifles to M240 Incinerator Units. On top of that, there will be more than 70 weapon mods available alongside class abilities. Fans can pre-order the game here
