New Aliens: Fireteam GameSpot Interview Shows Off Engineer Ruins!

After a bit of silence following the month-long coverage from IGN back in March, we have a new look Aliens: Fireteam gameplay featured in a GameSpot interview with the game’s developers.

Coming on the heels of the E3 gaming expo (which has gone virtual this year), GameSpot continued their ‘Play For All’ livestream where Cold Iron Studios CEO Craig Zinkievich and Creative Director Matt Highison sat down with GameSpot’s Jordan Ramée to discuss a number of topics on the game including differences in difficulty levels, the story & setting, the responsibility in taking on a new game entry in the franchise, and more.

The interview also features some brand new gameplay. Shown is a new planetary campaign level that we had a glimpse at around Alien Day, which definitely evokes the stone temple Engineer aesthetics of the Alien prequel films. It was also pretty great to see the rare visual of a marine dropship providing air support from above.

Check out GameStop’s full interview with included new gameplay below:

Of note, the game will feature a ping system, emotes, and customizable UI elements.

GameSpot has one more Play For All livestream scheduled, so we’ll be keeping keeping our eyes peeled to see if Aliens: Fireteam has another appearance later today.

    I remember when isolation came out I was in college and I could download and play it a day early for some reason, was really hoping that would be the case for fireteam but oh well. What really sucks is that its just shy of 30gb so I cant pre-download it on steam

    I'm still on the fence as to whether I'm going to pick it up at all. Might get it second hand when it's gone down in price. I don't know what it is, but it hasn't hyped me up at all.

    I saw on reddit that IGN let their score slip early by accident. Not sure of true but if it is they gave it a

    Spoiler
    7/10
    [close]

    Which isn't too bad actually, better than I had feared. Can't wait to read the reviews.

    I'm also seeing a lot of positive talk from the folks who have it early.

    As soo as they said all the "Endeavour Pass" content would ultimately be free for everyone after a certain period of time I decided to go with the regular version. I'm hoping to get the "Veteran's Pack" DLC separately though, so hopefully they'll have that up day one.

    When did they say that? It was confirmed that any additional gameplay-related content will be free (i.e. missions and classes), but presumably that's on top of whatever the Endeavor Pass contains (i.e. cosmetics, etc).

    You know, looking back on the tweet that I thought confirmed it, I think I just misinterpreted their meaning.

    https://twitter.com/AliensFireteamE/status/1419341766520713218

    At first I thought the bit that says "Endeavour Pass content will become available over time in seasonal releases" meant they'd be releasing it for free eventually, but I think it's just clarifying it'll be coming out in instalments rather than all at once.

    But regardless, if I see anything in there that I really, really want, I'll just get the DLC pass separately, since they've already said it'll be available outside of the deluxe edition.

    I'll be running it on a PS4 Pro so I'll try to remember to post my thoughts.

    I believe that if you buy the base game, you can still get the deluxe stuff as an upgrade at a later point. So even if you can't afford it now, it's bot going to be unobtainable

    Hmm. Well hopefully it will ultimately (in the long run) be a bit cheaper, at the very least?

    But still, sheesh. At least Predator Hunting Grounds Deluxe Edition gave you a digital graphic novel, art book, exclusive theme & skins, and early access to items for forking over more of your hard earned cash... on top of the pre-order exclusive Jungle Hunter skin.

    To be honest with you, I wouldn't blame anyone for passing on the Deluxe Edition, especially if they're strapped for cash. I purchased the Deluxe Edition personally because I wanted to support the game, but the Deluxe Edition goodies are on the weaker side in my opinion for an extra $30 dollars.

    It might be worth it when all is said and done; after the seasonal dlc bundles are revealed, but that is all a leap of faith contingent on hopefully🤞liking the game enough that you'll still be playing regularly 4 seasons later AND hopefully🤞liking these unknown cosmetics that you have pre-paid for. :)

    I'm tempted to pre-order the Digital Deluxe edition just to get some of the goodies for pre-ordering and I will likely get the game day-one, anyway. The streamers seem to be having fun, and the previews for the game seem positive, if a little cautious about the game's longevity. I want the game to succeed, because having a one-two punch of Isolation and a successful Fireteam Elite would be very good for the franchise. To this day, the stink of Colonial Marines still haunts this franchise. Luckily, my friends were the ones approaching me about this game instead of the other way around. So outside of the fanbase, there is excitement for it. That's good to see.

    My main complaint is still the three-player limit. Like, c'mon. It should have been four!

    A discord would be nice. And yes I was looking forward to playing with yall.

    But it looks like I need to find some other group (PC), as you are on different platforms.

    Shame this game isn't creating more buzz amongst the fans.

    I'll be playing on PC (added my steam info in the appropriate group). I believe the game will create a dedicated following like ACM did and groups willing to play will always pop up.

    People just have to mention they want to play with avpgalaxy members. 

    Somebody start a galaxy stream or something and Im sure you would find two other people willing to do it.

    Just dislike all those glowing areas on the xenos that just screams: shot me here, its my weak spot xD

    Hmm not seen much talk about playing together here so I presume most will play this alone or with randoms on the online mode, well if its as easy as other shoters of today I think it should be doable to beat it myself on hard setting, doubting the hardest difficulty is possible for a single player, but might try.

    I like the Aliens to present some sort of challenge but I don't like meandering about unable to move either. 


    I would want something with some balance, which will never be done.  The Aliens are easy to kill OR they are Angels from Evangelion where conventional weaponry doesn't hurt them. 

    The closest game I think of balance wise with the Alien was the first AvP.  The Aliens were cheetah chainsaws, but could go down easy if you located and put them down before they got close.  I'd like something similar someday, where the Aliens maybe weren't quite so easy to kill, and used something different then beelining right to you. 
    I actually really like how the Drone and Warrior are tough here, and only the Runners are fragile, I think this is one of the better takes on them, definitely better than them being as easy to shred as paper, or you just being able to block an attack, punch em, knocking them down, then being able to beat it to death like in the last 2 shooter games

    I think the wariness is actually people still remembering A:CM more than anything.  It is the most recent Marine vs Aliens gameplay that was advertised as capturing the feel of the second movie, and was complete unpolished dogshit. 

    I don't feel the outings before that really did anything to discourage people from buying an Alien licensed game.

    Isolation was pretty well received, AVP2010 had a decent run. 

    I think also that people are taking a wait and see approach with the lower price tag, perhaps suspicious that the game will not measure up to triple A games.

    However, if this is a shooter game that KNOWS it will have future content releases and that it is perhaps released a tad light on the content side of things cough  destiny cough, then maybe it is actually going to be a fair initial price.  If that is the case, I tip my wang to them.

    And I can kinda understand that, if you don't consider yourself to be "good" at multiplayer games or just like playing stuff at your own pace rather than have so much of it dictated by other people or whatever, then multiplayer games might not be very appealing to you.

    My regions internet just sucks so bad there's no hope for online multiplayer in a fast paced game.



    Quote from: Dachande on Aug 18, 2021, 12:13:31 PM
    I think a big part of it is also whether you are an Alien or Aliens person. I think the Alien fans are looking for something a little slower paced, tense, and scary. Whereas Aliens fan prefer the more fast paced shooter, Aliens are bugs type games.

    God what I'd give for an AvP that actually involved tracking, stalking and maneuvering as well built and important mechanics for both species.

    I think partly it's that, for whatever reason, some people just completely dislike the idea of multiplayer-only games with no singleplayer component, despite the fact that no-one bats an eye at singleplayer games with no multiplayer. And I can kinda understand that, if you don't consider yourself to be "good" at multiplayer games or just like playing stuff at your own pace rather than have so much of it dictated by other people or whatever, then multiplayer games might not be very appealing to you.

    Add to that the fact that as a result, this game seems to be very "simple" and arcadey (in a good way, imo) and with the story aspects serving more as a backdrop to the action rather than the focus, like they otherwise might have been in a singleplayer game, and I think some people might just be looking at it and thinking there's not much there.

    I get that, though personally I'm very much looking forward to it. I loved Left 4 Dead, very much enjoyed the recent Back 4 Blood beta, and think this looks like a great PvE multiplayer game in the same mould. Not to mention it looks extremely polished, and all the reactions from people who've played it have been positive. So yeah I'm definitely hyped. It's been too long since we had a good game in the Aliens vein, so I can't wait to get my hands on it.

    But are Alien fans just less excited about multiplayer focused games? Hunting Grounds didn't generate too much buzz either. Has the marketing not focused enough on the narrative component of the game, and too much on the multiplayer aspect?

    That's an interesting thought. Yes, perhaps.

    I've personally noticed that a lot of older video game players feel they can't hold-up or compete well in multiplayer games against younger generations. That pushes them to seek out more single player campaign experiences and avoiding multiplayer almost entirely. Considering the majority core of Alien fans that spawned from Aliens' heyday are much older now, I can see this situation fitting of that mold.

    Do I think the IPs of Alien (and Predator) will ever be worthy of a AAA game budget moving forward? As their heyday-fan bases continue to age, unfortunately not. Maybe something can change with a great feature film? Yet, I must remind myself that the Mad Max game, even while generally well reviewed and surrounded by a fantastic film, reportedly also failed to sell enough to justify a follow-up.

    I don't think it's really got much of a narrative, that's my prediction anyway, and perhaps most Alien fans are like me, unless it's couch co-op with a strong story, in general I don't give a f**k about Multiplayer I'd rather have a strong Singleplayer Campaign every time.

    Now I'm not saying that there aren't people who overlap, or even that these are concrete assumptions. Just something I feel I've noticed over the years.
