QuoteWe're huge fans of the universe and certainly drew inspiration from across lore, but no - Aliens: Fireteam is an entirely original experience and isn't a direct sequel to any one film or game.
Quote from: BlueMarsalis79 on Sep 01, 2022, 03:58:55 PMYeah lore wise the Crusher stuff makes absolutely no sense, it is clearly in design language the Praetorian equivalent to a Runner/Drone, with the Prowler/Warrior acting as an intermediary stage. I'm going to try and get an answer on their Discord Server. Like you have said a tail works as a counterbalance for walking or running not climbing, so that intel makes no sense, if the Brute lost the tail because of the mass being used up in the clubs, that might actually make some sense, as something passed on from the Pathogen Queen, being that it is an asymmetrical design and the club looks like unintended inflammation. I agree I do not feel enough explanation exists for how the Aliens got infected in the first place by the Pathogen, being that in other recent lore they are shown to be immune to it. An Addition: They are now claiming that they had no communication with Alien The RPG or other projects, in terms of maintaining any consistency, I find this difficult to believe. As I wrote in a reply: SpoilerI find that very difficult to believe that, I'm sorry, but the crossover's beyond a symbiotic relationship as far as the Alien fandom's concerned. Just literally every conversation with anything concerning the military history with any character on the Endeavor. Being identical to stuff in Alien The RPG? That has never appeared elsewhere in the EU? And Alien The RPG released before Fireteam Elite.[close]Another Addition: According to the writer, a reason does exist for the Pathogen being able to infect them, they just are not allowed to spoil it just yet.
