Aliens: Fireteam Elite coming to Xbox Game Pass in December

After launching back in August this year, Cold Iron's co-op shooter is heading to Xbox Game Pass in December – just in time for a big update.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite – the co-op shooter from Cold Iron that launched earlier this year – is already on its way to Xbox Game Pass.

After the title launched back in August this year, we heard from critics that it was OK – but that's a pretty good thing by games in the Alien franchise standards, right? You can check out the Alien Fireteam Elite reviews round-up at the link.

Per a blog post on the Xbox Wire, the title is set to arrive on the service on December 14 and will be playable on Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC.

The same day the game gets its big Season 2 update that will add the new Point Defense game mode, a new Lifetime Stats feature, and four new weapons (a rifle, hand gun, CQW, and heavy weapon).

Aliens: Fireteam Elite offers four story-driven campaigns that you can play through, and gives you customizable Colonial Marines to deploy against the Xenomorph threat. You play a pivotal role in the events that occur some 23 years after the original Alien trilogy as a Colonial Marine stationed aboard the UAS Endeavor. There are 11 different Xenomorphs along the evolutionary scale – from Facehuggers to Praetorians – that you need to eliminate and survive against, and five unique classes (Gunner, Demolisher, Technician, Doc and Recon) to play as.

If this has got you hungry for all things Xenomorph, why not check out our definitive list of all the Alien games?
