At launch, the game will have 5 classes to choose from. These are Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc, and Recon. Furthermore, each class will have its special skills and equipment. Hence, ensuring maximum teamwork and tactics to survive the onslaught. Likewise, Aliens: Fireteam has 11 Xenomorph types each deadlier than the other and boasting dangerous abilities, Weyland-Yutani synthetics, and more.

The game will also offer modifiers like Challenge cards and mutators. Just to add an extra layer of rewarding challenge to one’s playthrough.

Head of Cold Iron Studios Craig Zinkievich said that the game is designed to be challenging, engaging, and rewarding. Although there will be easier difficulties for the gamers that just want to breeze through the story mode campaigns in a short time.

For replayability and variety, Aliens: Fireteam features over 30 weapons and 70 attachments, to tweak your gun as you need to squash the Alien critters. Moreover, a ‘Perk Board’ to boost player’s abilities and learn new ones.

Finally, as the devs implied, the goal of the game is not to survive a Xenomorph, monster outbreak. The goal is to go all out guns blazing, to eradicate these bugs using tactics and teamwork. Therefore, Aliens: Fireteam will be best enjoyed in a full multiplayer squad with friends.

The game is releasing on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, in summer 2021.
