A standalone sequel to original Alien trilogy, 2021 multiplayer third-person shooter title Aliens: Fireteam Elite from developer/publisher Cold Iron Studios is out now across PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

Fireteam Elite is set 23 years after the events of original film series, players will assume the role of Colonial Marine on board USS Endeavor. In 2202, an expert fireteam heads over to planet LV-895 upon receiving a distress call from there.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite releases an official trailer to celebrate launch and teases surprising plot points ahead.

Cold Iron Studios makes an attempt to distance horror elements of Alien (1979) by Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Gladiator) and lean more into action-focused themes of Aliens (1986) by James Cameron (Avatar, Titanic) for campaign mode.
