  1. Kinda hope it is an mmo, a split world free roam similar to world of Warcraft chose your side aliens or colonial marines, separated by language and distance, the hive works to expand and grow, taking territory is a possibility, start as a face higher and grow to a drone, air or player humans could be brought to the hive for chestation by ai or player drones. Work your way up to stronger versions of the species.

  2. If they stick to original alien features and marine weaponary and put all their concentration into the game and it’s story, it should be a good game

  3. @The Crusher,

    Sadly I doubt it’ll be anything like Isolation. Cold Iron is comprised mostly of MMO devs, and people who focused on online FPS type games. Something tells me it’s going to be an online only COD version of aliens with a slam dunk full of microtransactions and so on.

    Best case scenario if it’s online only? They make an MMO comprised of several planets where players play as USCM troops with various classes and like PlanetSide 2 have to focus on maintaining control on planets and continental zones. Even better would be the ability to have a Scavver character (Like Tarkov) who can find gear and stuff for your main (Marine). But that in itself would get tiring after a while and prolly wouldn’t be too popular since Tarkov and Planet Side 2 already fit those nitches.

  4. Or it would be prettier to be a facehugger and infest another player to have the options to stay insider the other player for as long as you want!

  5. Earlier in the comments I saw some say something about avp Extinction, as I child I played this repetitively even went out and got another copy, if this could be done in a fps with life cycles of aliens that would be awesome and even have kills streaks like cod and instead of carepackeges in cod you could spawn a fleet of facehuggers instead of dogs in cod world at war

  6. Would be a great time also for Fox to pay a visit to Obsidian and be like “Yo, sorry Sega fucked you over and that we let them make A:CM. Here’s a few mill to make that RPG you wanted to make. Cheers.”


  7. Heres to hope it won’t be cluttered with Micro transactions which every developer is trying to copy Team fortress 2 and Overwatch model. Seeing it is going to be multiplayer shooter this might be the case.

    I pray one day we will get an Aliens/AVP game with asymmetrical gameplay and concepts of Natural Selection 1 and 2 where each team has a base and resources. The best part about this concept is being able to build and work together in actual Alien hive which hasn’t been done yet. The closest thing was AVP Extinction on PS2. I wish everyday for game like that.
