Aliens: Fireteam Shows Off Slick Visuals and New Xenomorph Types in 25 Minutes of Gameplay
Earlier this week Aliens: Fireteam was announced and now we have over 25 minutes of gameplay of the Left-4-Dead-style co-op shooter to check out, courtesy of IGN. As we learned previously, Fireteam focuses on teams of three and in the new footage we see the Gunner, Technician, and heavy-duty Demolisher classes in action. Developer Cold Iron Studio promises the game will have around 20 different alien xenomorph types, and during the gameplay we see the Runner, Spitter, Jumper, Burster, and big, bad Warrior variants. Check out the footage for yourself, below.
It doesn’t look like Aliens: Fireteam is offering much that numerous other L4D-likes haven’t done before, but the game’s level of polish definitely looks promising. Add a beloved franchise to the mix and maybe this one has what it takes to stand out from the pack. Here’s a bit more detail about Aliens: Fireteam…
