It’s a common question I’ve seen asked about Cold Iron Studio’s upcoming Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Will it support cross-play? Gamespot has given us a definitive answer to that question, having confirmed with Cold Iron Studios that the answer to that question is no.
When asked, Cold Iron Studios CEO Craig Zinkievich told GameSpot that “there is currently no plan for cross-play at this time.” So maybe it’s added down the line, but it’s looking like that’s not going to happen anytime soon.
It’s certainly disappointing, especially considering the co-operative nature of the game, but as Gamespot noted there’s still a possibility to see the feature added at some point. However, it has been confirmed that Aliens: Fireteam Elite will support cross-generational play where PS4 and PS5 can play together, and likewise for the Xbox.
On the topic of cross-generations, Cold Iron founder Matt Highison, confirmed that last generation copies of the game will also come with free upgrades to the next generation iterations!
Console fam! It’s hard to find a next-gen console. We don’t want you to have to wait to be killed by Xenos.
If you don’t have a next-gen console yet, you can buy the last-gen Fireteam Elite and get a free upgrade when you get the new machine!
Pre-orders get sweet bonuses too.
