A few days after the upcoming ‘Pathogen’ Expansion was announced during IGN’s Summer of Gaming event, IGN shared another interview with Cold Iron Studios CEO and founder Craig Zinkievich.
The interview doesn’t get too in depth but it’s coupled with some new gameplay. We get a good look at some of the new weaponry, neomorphic enemies, and environments featured. Our marines make their way into locked Engineer ruins, eventually transitioning into a spore infested pathogen hive. It’s interesting to see this new white hive inside the Engineer structure, in contrast to the Xenomorph hive built within the industrial human setting in the main game
Zinkievich gives some details on notable elements such as the pathogen enemies and Xenomorphs fighting each other, as well as additional branching paths here which we saw in a few levels of the main campaigns.
The Pathogen Expansion drops on August 30th, and we still have Season 4 of the first year of the game’s content to look forward to next month, which will bring long-awaited crossplay to the game.
