SAN JOSE, California – August 24, 2021 – Cold Iron Studios and 20th Century Games, are proud to announce that Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the new cooperative third-person survival shooter set within the Alien universe, is now available for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 and Steam™. 

Aliens: Fireteam Elite drops your fireteam of hardened marines into a desperate fight to contain the evolving Xenomorph threat. With over 20 enemy types, players must face off against waves of terrifying Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes alongside two players or AI teammates, as they desperately fight through four unique campaigns that introduce new storylines to the Alien universe. 

The game allows players to customize their own Colonial Marine, choosing from an extensive variety of classes, weapons, gear, and perks, battling overwhelming odds in this heart-pounding survival shooter experience.

“It’s been an unbelievable journey bringing the Alien universe to life, and we can’t wait for players to create a fireteam and experience the game,” said Craig Zinkievich, Head of Cold Iron Studios. “Whether you’re a fan of the universe, a veteran survival shooter, or a co-op gaming enthusiast, be prepared for a fight like no other.”

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!

As we await the next Alien movie, now is a great time to build your Alien collection and expand your Alien-themed wardrobe. Check out some products below and click here for even more options!

I love this game


DeaconMember10416 XPAug-24-2021 4:44 PM

Seems it could be FUN.....

Sadly i do-not have the Spec PC for this (mine is 15 Years Old) and well my Power House Games Console is a PS3/Xbox360 which i have NOT Played in 5 Years lol

Maybe one of those could do with a Long Overdue UPGRADE but i said that with the NEW Star Wars Battle Front (I had/loved the Originals from 2004-2005).


XenomorphMember1318 XPAug-24-2021 6:05 PM

Gonna pick it up...Now to find the time!


ChestbursterMember666 XPAug-26-2021 11:09 AM

Such a good game. There is a lot of Engineer's locations and decorations. Even better than in the films.


Statues, gardens and palaces, underground catacombs with beautiful fire/magma "forges". And, of course, the biomechanical spaceship docks and ship with gorgeous ladder .


PraetorianMember4185 XPAug-26-2021 7:02 PM

Damn I haven't reached those levels

love this game so far, great killing experiences with online gamers. Not much hassle or strategy to deal with, a great time killer and immersion to the Alien universe.
