25 minutes of Aliens: Fireteam gameplay has been released

Aliens: Fireteam will be coming to PC and consoles this Summer, offering gamers a Left 4 Dead-style co-op adventure for up to three players. Within this game, a team of Colonial Marines will take on Alien Xenomorph and Androids throughout a series of missions.

IGN has managed to become the first outlet to play Aliens: Fireteam, releasing 25 minutes of gameplay for the title onto their YouTube channel. Their video, which is embedded below, showcases the game's visuals, how its third-person perspective looks in-game and how the game's perks and upgrade system function. 

Within Aliens: Fireteam, players will be able to assume the role of one of five player classes, ensuring that the game will play differently with each fireteam. With each squad only having three players, two classes will always be missing from every mission, creation a lot of potential variety within each of the game's missions. Cold Iron Studios are also said to be working on a randomisation feature to ensure that each mission will play differently when replayed. 

So far, Aliens: Fireteam has been confirmed for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC (through Steam).

Aliens: Fireteam is a co-operative shooter where players can form a Fireteam and take on hordes of deadly Xeonomorth. Players will assume roles within Assault Unit LV-895 of the Colonial Marines, where they will search through ancient alien ruins and fight against alien threads and corporate interests. 

In multiplayer, Aliens Fireteam can support three players online or be played with two AI teammates in solo mode. The game will feature four unique campaigns and new storylines for the Aliens universe. Players will choose from various classes and select a unique loadout of weapons, perks and modifications. 

Within the game, Cold Iron boasts over 20 enemy types at launch and 11 Xenomorph variants, evolving from Facehuggers to Praetorians, each of which will have unique AIs, behaviours, strengths, and weaknesses.  

Aliens: Fireteam is a title that is comparable to games like Left 4 Dead, World War Z, and Vermintide II, requiring co-op play and smart manoeuvring to ensure the survival of your Fireteam. Right now, Aliens Fireteam has no firm release date and no listed PC system requirements on Steam.
