Celebrating Alien Day 2021, Cold Iron Studios have debuted our first look at game environments directly out of Ridley Scott's Alien prequels! The following images debuted today by the official Aliens: Fireteam Twitter account showcase what is evidently an Engineer Temple (very reminiscent to the one David set up shop in in Alien: Covenant)! Not only that, but additional images suggest a Weyland-Yutani outpost may have been constructed on Paradise or another Engineer planet the company discovered! We also speculate the Weyland-Yutani facility could also be a nod to the one in Neill Blomkamp's Alien 5 script... Check it out!

What do you think? Will you be playing Aliens: Fireteam this summer?! Sound off in the comments!

Happy Alien Day!

The future of Alien

The Alien franchise is taking a dramatic turn at 20th Century Studios, now owned by Disney. Currently there are two major Alien projects in development - a new Alien TV series by Noah Hawley and a new, stand-alone Alien movie being directed by Fede Alvarez. Both of which will be taking the franchise in a new direction - moving away from the Alien prequel direction Ridley Scott set out to pursue back in 2012.

Treat yourself to some Alien Merchandise!

Definitely looks like Planet 4 ;)

I think as FAR as a Plot you would have to ASK as to WHY would W-Y not go and check out LV-223 and Planet 4 after they receive Davids Advent Message.

I think we maybe should NOT go and Rush Ahead and think this is where ENGINEERS will return though.... Certainly we have the Neomorph Threat, and Protomorphs... but then if the Company Team goes and Mess about with any Black Goo Canisters then we can Certainly Expect some more FIFIELDS LOL

I think its also Interesting that Fireteam hints at other Threats that are NOT of the Xenomorph Origin.... so we wont just be doing BUG HUNTS ;)

If the Game does well maybe it could Spawn a TV Series well one that is Based off the Weyland-Yutani Military as they are Bound to have more Threats than Xenomorphs.

I'm reading the prequel novel right now. Its called Infiltrator. The planet is apparently referred to as LV-895, and the lab is call Pala station. All I can say is that I hope the game is better than the book.

It's good that they keep the Engineers in the franchise, it would be too bad if they were never seen again in any way. The prequels added them to the franchise and expanded it, something that I welcome.  There are more to this franchise than Xenos and the old things. Unfortunately AC took a step back on this but I hope that they will be in another alien-movie in the future.

I think when it comes down to the Engineers it DEPENDS on what you would Expect.

LV-223 Guys who Speak Little would be kind of like having the Predators from AVP.

The Planet 4 Guys had disappointed some but these PAINTED a Picture about Civilization

The Elders were Interesting but they may have got a Redesign if we EVER got to see them where they would appear more like Planet 4 than LV-223.

The Plot seems to indicate the Engineers invest more time in Creating Civilizations and Teaching Them things and Interacting with Worlds, than SPENDING a lot of Time on Creating Horrors like the Xenomorph/Deacon and then ROCKING UP to worlds to UNLEASH them.

But thats the KIND of Engineers/Plot that most would want to see, i feel the Expansion with the Engineers is JUST beyond what many would be into, were as a AVP is more their kind of Cuppa Tea as far as Xenomorphs and ANOTHER Alien Species.  I guess Fans dont want Thought Provoking, but Bone-Breaking Story/Plot.

I think you Needed a Balance between the two.
