Updated: Major New Content Teased For Aliens: Fireteam Elite!

There’s been a few rumblings on the social media channels for Aliens: Fireteam Elite recently.

Last week developer Cold Iron dropped an image of a UACM letter from the Endeavor’s commanding officer, Colonel Olivia Shipp, detailing the situation from where we left of on LV-895. It seems as though the 40th Marine Expeditionary Unit shouldn’t relax just yet.

The letter is noted with a red pen, expanding on the details of the report. Olivia raises the possibility of more pathogen stockpiles within additional Engineer ruins yet to be surveyed. This could be referring to the ‘Engineer Cathedral’ location which was datamined by community member PAS Spinelli a few months back. Also mentioned is the thriving Xenomorph hive still infesting Pala Station, the setting for the game’s prequel novel Aliens: Infiltrator. Continuing, the report warns of native live and non-native life being susceptible to pathogen mutation. 

This morning saw the release of a teaser video announcing the game’s presence at IGN’s Summer of Gaming showcase this Friday on June 10th.

The video shows an aftermath of dead Xenomorphs strewn on the ground of an Engineer ruin with Dr. Hoenikker asking “Who… what killed them?” 

What seems to be a new enemy then approaches with an imposing shadow moving through a white nest unique to the Xenomorph hives we’ve previously explored, followed by the date we’ll be seeing more.

As fan @Th3Lonef0x pointed out on Twitter, there seems to be what looks like a Neomorph hidden in the distance at the three second mark.

These teases make us think we’re finally on the cusp of seeing new campaign content released for the game, but we won’t have to wait long to find out what Cold Iron has in store for us. We’ll be reporting on what they have to show come Friday.

UPDATE:

A new tweet from Cold Iron has announced that the upcoming content will be shown off at 9am PDT during tomorrow’s IGN Summer of Gaming stream. The image attached shows off a new enemy type that we thought were Neomorphs from the brief glimpse in the teaser video. While they still maintain the Neomorph look, they seem to be more developed creatures from what we saw in Alien: Covenant. The marines are making their way though a Pathogen Hive environment, with the composition reflecting the original teaser image from when the game was still known as ‘Aliens: Fireteam.’

    So we got a year of small DLC packs and one full-on expansion.

    Now what? How do games work now? If they stop working on the game & adding new shit, will they make an announcement? Or do fans just get left waiting?
  2. Wweyland
    Yes, going to the selection and clicking on the same exact card works. Thanks!
    I also recently discovered you can rotate the abilities on the perks selection. Doh.

    Does anyone know how to clear a selected card on the PC version? I've seen others do it, but there's just no clear indication. Meaning if I select a card, I can of course select another one, but what if I want to just remove my selection?

    So I got my Technician class down and have one of my Doc layouts down for point defence/combat stims, need to level up one more time to do a team healer layout.

    Trying out Lancer for the first time as I wanted to get the perk Heavy Lancer Expertise for the Demolisher... but mmmmm I could get used to Lancer.

    But anyway it's nice to have Technician and Doc as options in order to potentially better balance a team, while I'm now on the fence with Demolisher and Lancer for a pure damage role.

    I want to love Phalanx as that kind of class really calls out to me... but I'd really like a taunt perk in order to attract enemies to make greater use of what the class does best.

    And I now have Pathogen downloaded.

    Yeah I wish there had been more boss fights in the main game like this one. It was nice to finally have e a boss fight and a little FMV. The Pathogen queen was  pretty cool and this expansion overall was a fun romp. Will it add any longevity? Not really but like the main game it's fun to run through the first couple times.

    The levels look good as usual, the Pathogen hive was very cool.

    Quote from: Crazy Rich on Aug 31, 2022, 01:16:53 AMWell I see that even with crossplay I still can't get any games.  ::)

    I'll play with you when I am available. Add me. @BlueMarsalis79

    PM sent.

    It's been a long time so I've pick up where I left off and am leveling the Technician as well looking for hidden crates on Intense difficulty (with dat stupid AI that runs in front of me all the time be it flamethrower or shotgun) so that I can find a couple perks I need for the Technician build.
  7. Wompdonkey
    Super stoked for the release. How's everyone prepping? Im playing through the game again, on ps5 this time.

    I really enjoyed the base game, and what Cold Iron was able to accomplish with such a small team. Here's hoping the expansion gives us more love shown to Alien.

    Quote from: BlueMarsalis79 on Aug 13, 2022, 10:38:48 PMI want a four player option. I do not care if it makes it kinda unbalanced, we will just up the difficulty, one of my friends always ends up sadly left out.

    Damn do I know how that feels, always felt like an odd wheel out back with games like Destiny.

    At least it was Destiny you missed out on.

    Yea, it was somewhere into Destiny 2 when I finally said "f**k this shit I'm out".

    The funny thing is there was a glitch for a short period of time on console where you could play with 4, sometimes even 5 players. Every time it seemed fun as hell, everything worked. Make 4 players only available on Extreme or Insane, but it is fun. All of their reasonings for that decision seem like lame excuses, it's a poor design decision in the end...

    Quote from: PAS Spinelli on Aug 14, 2022, 01:13:50 AMI kinda hope for some sort of PVP eventually, even it it's just someone playing as the hivemind

    I would love some PvP, if they gave me that eventually, everything will be forgiven from my end, but that seems like too big of a step for them. They can't even give us an original new game mode, just very simple horde mode variations with one single map each. So I don't trust their abilities to do so.
