Prior to E3 Nils Ahrensmeier took to Twitter to share news of Aliens: Fireteam’s rename to Fireteam Elite, box art and that the game would be making an appearance at E3. That appearance never came to be. However, pre-orders for the game are now available on Best Buy and the listings are featuring the new name, box art that Ahrensmeier previously shared and a release date!

 [Unconfirmed] Aliens: Fireteam Gets New Title, Box Art and Release Date!

The listings give a retail price of $39.99, and if they hold true, Fireteam Elite will be getting a physical release and see release in August! According to Best Buy the PlayStation 5 and Xbox editions are releasing August 24th, while the PlayStation 4 listing has the 4th. This may be a mistake though.

The Best Buy listings also come with a look at the exterior of our Colonial Marine’s ship (which Ahrensmeier also previously shared) the Endeavor!

At this time though, this remains unconfirmed by Cold Iron Studios. Thanks to Drukathi, Necrofever and Warrio64 for the news.

Love the box art! Gives me some Contra vibes.

Drukathi

A bit strange that there are still no changes for the Steam version. Maybe soon.

I'm liking the Endeavor. It's giving me Halo vibes, which works for me because Halo took from Aliens for a lot of aesthetics.

yesterday we had a chance to talk to cold iron member my questions being answerd : 

1., Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 01:54 Uhr
     If you are talking about the "trumpet/horn" type of death cry, yes it's in there

2.,Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 00:02 Uhr
You cusomize your character (hair, face, etc).

3.,Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 01:55 Uhr
Is the trumpet played for every death? No. I'd rather be scared and panicked than annoyed at the constant trumpeting.
[01:56]
Other death cries are appropriately screechy, and the trumpet is thrown in a decent amount

[00:02]
(In the "Change Base Appearance" menu)

4.,Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 01:58 Uhr
M41a2 is the new pulse rifle for Fireteam. Nothing else to announce for now
[01:59]
I'll ask! It's a lot, but it's going to be hard to pin down. We use a dynamic system for audio that can, in very basic terms, mix together multiple sounds on the fly so it's not always playing the same canned track over and over again

5., Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 02:01 Uhr
Hahaha

[02:07]
Audio example- some guns, just the firing sound, has 4 files all mixing in at the same time, randomly tweaked each shot for pitch/volume/etc
[02:08]
My favorite pistol, JUST the fire sound is 5 audio tracks.

6., Not "play one of these 5"... all 5 are mixed together each time you pull the trigger

1
[02:08]
The audio design is f**king great. There are some very very awesome sounding weapons in here

7.,Higgs - ColdIron — heute um 02:51 Uhr
There's some good options for you too then... like tuning how much the motion tracker beeps at ya

Quietly hoping the 4th is the release date and not the 24th though I'm sure it'll be the other way around  ;D

I've already complimented the cover art but once again, it's decent! Express elevator to hell vibes!

Corporal Hicks

Yeah, I expect they just missed the 2 off the date for that one. Another 2 months to go. Hopefully we'll see a confirmation soon. I just want to know for certain so I can book some time off!

Yay to the box art, the new title, physical copies, and the retail price of $39.99! Woot! 👏

Kailem

Hopefully an August release date is indeed correct as that puts it in range of "close enough to not be too much longer to wait but plausible that they still haven't announced it officially yet." I'd really rather not wait until the end of September to play this.

An August 24th confirmation is definitely good, though it's a bit of a shame it's in the latter portion of the month. (EDIT: I didn't initially see the date because the damn IGN popups obscured it :laugh:).

Also that looks like a completely new creature at the .58 mark, though bone white, so possibly a bit Neomorph-inspired. And yeah they're really going hard with the Engineer environments. Looks like there are about as many of them in this trailer as traditional industrial corridors and such!
