Something sinister has evolved in the wilds of planet LV-895 and not even Xenomorphs are safe from its ravages. The crew of the Endeavor must venture into uncharted lands and face terrifying new enemies if they hope to discover the source of this mysterious new threat. This expansion adds a new campaign to Aliens: Fireteam Elite which features three exclusive story missions where players will attempt to survive against never-before-seen enemies with an armory of new tools and cosmetics.
The Pathogen Expansion features the following content:
3 New Missions as a part of the Pathogen campaign
8 New Weapons, 2 for each weapon type
1 New Perk for each Class Kit that modifies the player’s main ability
26 New Weapon Attachments that modify stats and grant special traits
2 New Outfits (for all 7 Class Kits) and 6 Head Accessories for Marine customization
21 New Weapon Colors and 9 Decals for gun customization
10 New Emotes for interacting within Fireteams
Alongside the Pathogen expansion, Cold Iron also revealed plans for a free update for all Aliens: Fireteam Elite owners, a new Hardcore mode that will ship at the same time as Pathogen. In this mode, marines will be faced with an extreme survival challenge that will test their resolve and mental fortitude.
Additionally, as a part of an upcoming July update, Aliens: Fireteam Elite will add crossplay, enabling players from around the world to form elite squads across all platforms.
The Pathogen expansion will be available for purchase on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and Steam. A copy of Aliens: Fireteam Elite on the same platform is required to play this content.

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.
