If you’re unfamiliar with the game, Aliens: Fireteam Elite is a third-person co-op survival shooter set in the Alien universe. In Aliens: Fireteam Elite, you and a fireteam (three people to a fireteam) will work to push back against 20+ enemies (11 different Xenomorphs) that all behave differently.
Enemies will come in waves, so strategizing with other members of your team is key. The only question that remains with the game is… how long can you survive in Aliens: Fireteam Elite? Find out when the game releases on August 24!
