It is no coincidence that Aliens: Fireteam Elite takes up the spelling of the second episode of the franchise in the cinema. This co-operative multiplayer shooter gives pride of place to all-out action and offers players the role of a marine sent on a mission aboard the USS Endeavor.
Accompanied by 2 other troops armed to the teeth, it will then be necessary to do battle with the twenty types of enemies crawling and climbing the walls of the aircraft. We find both the cult Xenomorphs of HR Giger, but also the androids – sorry, the Synthetics designed by the Weyland-Yutani corporation, just to bring a little variety to the massacre.
This arrival in Xbox Game Pass coincides with the launch of the second season of free post-launch content for the game. Point Defense, it will introduce a new game mode – aptly named Point Defense too – as well as new cosmetic accessories and in-game emotes. Players will be able to consult the respective statistics of their favorite weapons and enjoy 4 new additions to the arsenal, ranging from handguns to huge rifles.
The title of Cold Iron Studios suffered from the arrival of another FPS in co-op: if Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios is swapping aliens for the living dead, it was nonetheless a great success when it launched last October. Arrived two months later Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the zombie game has undoubtedly cannibalized (no pun intended) the attention of fans of the genre. By integrating the Xbox Game Pass, Fireteam Elite should ensure a boost to its installed base of players – just as short-lived as it may be.
