-New attachments, including the grenade launcher
-New type of mission
-Many new classes

Here goes the imgur album with all of those sans the mission type

They seem to have been found by a Discord user that goes by TheSoldier

Nostromo? Hmm. I assumed we'd get some legit "Aliens" characters first.

That new mission type is the most important item to be added I think.

The new level was described as a "patrol" and apparently seems to be some form of procedural level generator

And, well, we already have Aliens outfits, makes sense we'd get some Alien ones too, I assume we might get some Prisoner outfits next

That sounds like it's exactly what this game needs. I wonder how far along this is. Hopefully it's not an abandoned concept.

I wouldn't say Nostromo outfits alone make sense. But I think there would be an appeal if we got actual characters from the Alien Universe as paid dlc, voiced by the original actors if all possible. Like Sigourney Weaver as Ripley in different outfits from 79 to Resurrection (Ripley-8). I think many would fork over some extra cash to Cold Iron for that.

I realize maybe the Katanga might have one of it's own Nostromo ship....whatever they call it. Lockmart CM-88B Bison type ship to 'get away' from their refinery for whatever reason (like being a tugboat). That said Katanga's crew must have some pilots and engineers as how would the Mining colony on Pala Station get to Katanga if it not for a Nostromo type ship?

Or San Lorenzo (im assuming this might be a similar ship) have staff that utilize these jumpsuits as well.

But whatever, the jump suit looks similar in design to Bishop's jump suit from Aliens.

Well Bishop's didn't have the big collar right? Oh well, I'm no expert when it comes to outfits, but I was just reacting to the actual name listed "Nostromo Jumpsuit [Armor] Model" :)

It would be kind of interesting if you get to save civis or Android Bishop type models on the first campaign and have them on your crew as an option to replace beta and alpha. Then that would make this nostromo uniform leak kind of make sense.

But yet, that would put civis in unnessary danger, plus Heonniker was saved but he's on the Endeavor permanently.

It would be kind of cool if we do more of this, and the new engineer civi makes new weapons found in these leaks.

But to save a synth  like  SN/TH/YA and whats her name (Esther?) who are allegedly synthetics  along the lines of Bishop/Call/David and put them into combat scenerios are more ideal. We know Bishop can do anything....David and Walter can beat you up and use guns.Call can run for her life.

Eh, the only "armor" I can think of in ALIEN are their space suits. It would be kind of interesting to see an armored space suit type of thing... But just regular clothing? Maybe if we get Rescue missions where we look for civilians to evacuate. But as a marine? Why walk into the belly of the beast just wearing overalls? Silly.

It would be really awesome if the new Torch class (take it it's an Incendiary pyro-tech class) will brandish different types of the infamous but awesome Apesuit (ALIEN3 style and from the AVP games) as the W-Y armor we got look way too futuristic and out of character if you ask me. It's too DOOM Guyish Master Chief for me.

As for the inmates, then yeah, it would be cool to have a bald marine wearing a long militaryesque army style overcoat like the one Dillon & Clemens sported while still wearing Colonial Marines attire and body armor underneath. Maybe if we end up getting a more hostile outdoor environment set of maps,  where large coats like that would actually kind of make sense being worn by the marines.

Also, the Haywire class seems very interesting. It seems like it's  basically a sapper / combat engineer kind of unit? Setting up barricades, rolling out (electric) fences and whatnot to strategically block the enemy while offering extra time and cover for one's teammates.

It would be kind of interesting if you get to save civis on the first campaign and have them on your crew as an option to replace beta and alpha.

Fun idea, but would you really like to have a bunch of panicking untrained civilians to follow you around rather than combat- programmed robots, whom are fearless by default?

The whole Hoenikker escort episode was pretty damn silly with him running around toting his gun. Sure he, wanted to prove himself, but still - extremely goofy and unrealistic. Made the Aliens seem even weaker than before (...as if that's possible). He should've been surrounded and protected at all times by the players/marines, as if he dies you automatically fail the mission, and he should have very limited health. Sure, Ripley was tougher than most, even tougher and competent than some of the Marines, but she had experience and the soul of a warrior, and not every civilian in the Alien franchise can be a Ripley, especially not some scientist who has spent most of his adult life in labs and research facilities. Also, pistols should be useless unless emptying a whole magazine at soft spots upclose, or if you sport big slug firing guns 100+ years from when A:FTE takes place.

Based on the Discord Q&A it sounds like they won’t be doing classic characters:

Are there any plans for movie tie in content, paid DLC or free? Characters, locations, etc? Excited for the future of the game, you’ve made a good one.

We’ve been focused on adding new stories and characters to the Aliens universe. There’s more LV-895 story to tell. : )

Those new data mined weapons look pretty sweet. Thanks for the share, PAS Spinelli.

Not the wisest choice, in my eyes, if it ultimately applies. We'll see!

Seems like a missed opportunity. I get their reasoning but I would pay $ for movie tie-in stuff.

I know it will never happen but I would kill for a campaign set at the Hasanova Data Solutions Charybdis Complex.  ;D

... At some point they need to make an option where we'll have PvP. One idea would be to have at least one player to play as the Hive Mind. The Hive Mind player(s) is in control of what's in each wave of Xenos using some kind of points system to spend on different Xenos. The Hive Mind can also take control and play as any of the Xenos spawned. This is obviously for Horde Mode, but I could see a system where players get to take the role of the AI and spawning enemies in mission mode as well while being able to select as certain Xenomorphs during each wave or attack, even plant Eggs, stray Facehuggers or position Prowlers in advance (much like how the Marines deploy sentry guns, mines etc. It sure as hell would make the game a lot harder for the Marines. Just a thought. I mean, one of my favorite things in the AVP games and A:CM was to play as the Alien or facing people playing as the Alien.

I'd love to see something akin to Left4Dead where 3 people would play as the marines like normal, and then 3 people play as the "elite" named aliens in conjunction to the spawning aliens. That'd be fun!

There's a Card that spawns in a Drone every time you kill it. It makes the game harder, but hella more fun too. Be great even if 1 player had the chance to spawn in these named aliens
