Cold Iron Studios and 20th Century Games are  excited to announce the newest trailer for the upcoming Aliens: Fireteam Elite: Pathogen expansion, releasing on August 30. The Pathogen expansion will be available to download on Xbox Series One, Xbox X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC for $14.99.


There are also two new editions launching with the base game:

  • The Ultimate Edition Upgrade for owners of Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which will include the  Pathogen expansion as well as all 5 Endeavor Pass cosmetic DLCs for $29.99

  • The Ultimate Edition, which will include Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the Pathogen expansion,  and all 5 Endeavor Pass cosmetic DLCs for $59.99 

Pathogen introduces an all-new campaign which explores the deadly effects of the black goo  infection inspired by the Alien universe. This pathogen can change not only local flora and  fauna, but also any Xenomorphs exposed to it, causing them to hunt and kill anything they can  find, including non-mutated Xenomorphs. 

Showcasing multiple sneak peeks at what players can expect in the expansion, the new  Pathogen trailer highlights players’ first ever head-to-head boss encounter in Aliens Fireteam  Elite. Three-person Fireteams will have to dive deep into a mutated enemy hive to outsmart and  overcome a terrifyingly mutated Xenomorph Queen.

In addition to a slew of cosmetics, weapons, and weapon attachments, all players will also get a  new, free Hardcore Mode that will test their skills in increasingly difficult battles, which may  result in permadeath. Alongside the July update’s Crossplay feature, it is easier than ever to find  your Fireteam and get fighting!

The Pathogen Expansion features the following content: 

  • 3 New Missions as a part of the Pathogen campaign, featuring new enemies and the  Pathogen Queen boss fight! 

  • 8 New Weapons, 2 for each weapon type 

  • 1 New Perk for each Class Kit that modifies the player’s main ability 

  • 13 New Weapon Attachments that modify stats and grant special traits 

  • 2 New Outfits and 6 Head Accessories 

  • 21 New Weapon Colors and 10 Decals for gun customization 

  • 10 New Emotes for interacting within Fireteams 

Aliens: Fireteam Elite is rated M for Mature by the ESRB.

Pathogen alien-queen? How would this be different to the queen in Aliens (AR doesn't count, LOL!)? I like that they try new things, but they got to be smart about it.


MemberPraetorianAug-31-2022 10:22 AM

Wait I wonder is she a mutated xenomorph or is she a neomorph?


MemberDeaconOct-11-2022 7:37 AM

I dont know WHY it has to look more like a Xenomorph Queen than anything else?

They could have had it as some kind of Giant Monster that was more Similar to the Trillobite.  That would be able to Unleash like Mini like Octopoid or Tick like Creatures that could INFECT Players etc.  Something more Closer to the Pathogen Aliens than the Classic Xenomorph.
