Summer 2021 will be a big one for gamer fans of Alien. Cold Iron Studios is developing a brand-new video game called Aliens: Fireteam, set in the franchise begun by Ridley Scott. And today, a new trailer introduces the third-person co-op, survival shooter that will expand the Alien Universe. The story is set 23 years after the original Alien trilogy and follows a Colonial Marine aboard the USS Endeavor. In the game, fans will have to smash what looks like thousands of Xenomorphs while wandering through abandoned ruins and strange alien landscapes. The game features four campaigns that fans can play together with two friends or AI teammates.

The official Aliens: Fireteam description reads:
“Facing over 20 intelligent enemy types – from Xenomorphs to Weyland-Yutani Synthetics – players must utilize cover tactics and master team strategy to eradicate extraterrestrial threats that swarm through doors and vents, scramble across walls and ceilings, and strike from darkness with uncanny ferocity. Five character classes, an expansive arsenal of customizable weapons and mods, character progression, and innovative advancement systems help even the odds in this heart-pounding shooter and place Aliens: Fireteam in another dimension of co-op survival shooters. The unique Challenge Card system also lets players mutate each mission, offering a new experience with every playthrough.”
Aliens: Fireteam will debut on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Steam sometime in Summer 2021.
