Aliens: Fireteam just got announced, it's a third-person co-op, survival shooter that's set in the Alien universe! Check out the first gameplay & info that talks about story details and more.
This could be good.
it looks really rough but as a fan of Aliens I'll give it a try. Still want an isolation game, but this is a decent fit for taking on swarms of them. Can it be worse than Colonial Marines? I hope noit
Oof let's hope it isn't worse than that
Sega screwed us on Colonial Marines but my alien fanboyism made me play it lol. I will admit i modded the hell out of it and thats your only option. I agree it was terrible and such a letdown. Alien Isolation is the best alien game and while it is great i want action style alien game.
looks good htough need a bit work on animation
They need to tweak the way alien runs on two feet. Running Motion looks to human
Same. I love me some Aliens and I just want to shoot Xenomorphs! LOL! Colonial Marines still make me cringe when I see it since it could have been waaaay more than what we got.
I'm hoping it's a return to an actual Aliens game where we can play and shoot some Big Chaps and Xenomorphs.
After Colonial Marines...I have my expectations low...
Nah. This isn't being made by a piece of garbage scam artist that promised to make a game then sent it to some 3rd party developer while he took all the money and used it to make Borderlands 2.
But it could be a disaster let’s hope it’s not
This is such a step back from Alien isolation Looks generic as hell
Its just an arcade wave shooter
So is Killing Floor, and while the series could use some highly advanced systems now for variety, 1 and 2 are still fun games and the guns feel really good to boot. Though I'm not too fond of third person only of this game.
Meh, there's room.for action games and horror games in alien universe. Best alien games are still avp 1 and 2 not isolation
Agree. It just looks too cookie cutter.
Alien Isolation and Aliens Fireteam are different games from one another, Isolation is a slower paced survival horror focused game whereas Fireteam is a fast paced survival action shooter etc.......
Die hard alien fan here so i must play this but some disappointments.Why does the M41A pulse rifle sound like a regular assault rifle? The sound is unique in the alien franchise and needs to be done right.
Ask the developer about that
I read what you said. I saw that the M4A1 actually does have the right sound (at least in some shots) but perhaps the smart gun sounded weird too. I have to say I'm actually impressed. It came out of nowhere, and it actually looks good. The cinematic camera angle may have looked stiff but I'll bet the camera in game, and actual gameplay will be decent, if not pretty good.
I think its looks pretty good, sort of L4D alien style. Would love a aliens remake of the ps1/saturn game.
It's third person which gives it a kind of WWZ feel. No idea why they do this when first person may have been more preferred, at least for PC gamers anyway. Back 4 Blood might be the one to scratch the L4D itch but after playing the alpha i wasn't too sold on it. Still waiting for the beta
Back 4 Blood has zero L4D atmosphere. Playing it feels like playing a clone not a successor made by the same developer.
I think this will be buy immediately for me, have been saying for YONKS now please someone do a co OP Alien shooter.. This looks bang on at the moment..
I'm buying it day one just as an Alien fan who want to shoot Xenos with MY gf. She likes Alien almost as much as I do so we can't wait.
Looks promising, at least its third person and not usual fps.
Well I am looking forward to this. Let me guess the Pre Order DLC. Hicks/Hudson character. Vasquez's Smart Gun and Ripley's Pulse Rifle.
I’ll give it credit for not having the “not in game footage” disclaimer at the bottom.
I mean....it showed actual gameplay, so why would it?
Just cuz a lot of games will show prerendered footage as gameplay.
This looks rough: animations, movement, very dumb AI (i mean, judging by the movies, aliens are smart, they don't bum-rush you in a straight line, but try to pick survivors one by one, hiding, using geometry, there was none of that here), all felt very scripted. It might be just a trailer, but i got flashback about that recent online Predator game. Graphics look ok (not bad, but not «Stunning visuals, realistic environments» as they advertise either) I get that it might be an «alpha». But: - game is releasing in summer 2021, just a couple of months left to fix and balance everything, then have a beta; - it's an unknown studio (with empty website) and this is their first game. If they can make all 5 classes feel unique and have some sort of interesting interactions with maps (like certain classes able to weld the doors shut, other hacking/turning back security, other using mechs/heavy weapons) without forcing you to have a certain classes to progress (aka, interesting gameplay) and great gunplay, it might be an amazing game.
They certainly do rush right you. But while they are doing that, others also come from unexpected directions. You're right, xenos are smart. Which is why they know how to misdirect. And the description clearly says they do that in the game.
You're probably right, i would love to fight against smart agile enemies. I just saw the 0:39 moment (where aliens run towards the flamethrower guy) and was like «Are they dumb or what?!», but it was probably just a bad moment in a trailer.
I think the studio actually just has little experience making Trailers. The game itself will probably be a blast. Some things will need tweaking perhaps but I'm excited to potentially give a new studio my dollars for a game I've always wanted.
You're probably right and i do hope this game will be a blast, coop shooter with marines against smart different aliens, that sounds like a dream! To be fair, i just don't know why Disney/Fox gave Aliens IP to a new studio, but maybe we'll be plesantly surprised
Looks ok to me. Nothing new but looks promising with the gameplay, hopefully not just a stand, walk and shoot game like Back 4 Blood styled game (that's not a complaint, just needs to be different for me) . Selfishly I hope you can play it solo too with less enemies making it a little more challenging whilst heightening the atmosphere at the same time but this does look good.
This has to be good I hope. Buying no questions, as Aliens is my all time favorite movie and I have wanted a similar experience in a video game. Colonial Marines was a letdown but the game did capture the sound, weapons, atmosphere of the movie quite well.
Ok, I'll bite! This looks interesting!
Not keeping my hopes up. Alien, predator and terminator games and movies haven't bee great since the 90s...
I really hope this doesn't end up like Colonial Marines....
Colonial marines had substantial downgrades and was in development hell for like almost 8 years I believe? This is already nothing like Colonial Marines. Which I own and played regardless, as an Alien fan.
Colonial Marines was given to Randy Pitchford at Gearbox, along with a ton of money to make it. But he sent the game to some unknown 3rd party developer to make while he used most of the money to make Borderlands 2. Then when people started wanting results for Colonial Marines and Pitchfor saw it was in terrible shape they did their best to make it better, but ran out of time and had to release it in the terrible state we got it. Randy is a piece of crap.
Yeah sounds about right. I always got shady vibes from him even before he wrecked Colonial Marines.
gives off a GTFO vibe to me. And that's a good thing.
I love Aliens and coop shooters, so I'll give it a try. Too bad it's TPS and not FPS.
This does not look good at all.
Please don't be colonial marines all over again.
day z with alien theme, nice. Hope it does well.
Looks as fun as Alien VS predator game....no not the 2010, I mean the 1999 version. The good one.
