A year after launchcooperative shooter in the Alien universe, Aliens: Fireteam Elite, got his first boss battle. Starting August 30, as part of paid games Pathogens expansion, players will be able to face the mutated Xenomorph Queen.
If you don’t believe me ask “This Aliens Game doesn’t have Xenomorph Queen, the main boss of the movie Aliensas playable boss battle?” the answer is “sort of.” Players can face the Xenomorph Queen in the game’s campaign, but her mission is to escape from her, not kill her.
That will change next week, when Aliens: Fireteam Elite‘s Pathogens The expansion is live on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. The expansion will bring more than just a killable queen to the Elite Fire Teamit will also bring a new strain of the Xenomorph mutation, which has been infected with the “black goo” introduced to the fictional Alien in Ridley Scott’s prequel, Prometheus. The Xenomorph Queen players who would face down would also be harassed, and differed in appearance from the queens Ripley was known to have faced in Aliens. You can see footage of the Pathogen mutated queen and her nest in the trailer above.
It Pathogens The expansion will bring with it three new missions, new weapons and attachments, and lots of new cosmetics, emotes, and other customization options. The expansion costs $14.99 as a standalone add-on. 20th Century Games has two other purchase options: Ultimate Edition Upgrade for owners Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which comes packaged in the Pathogen expansion and five Endeavor Pass DLC for $29.99; and the Ultimate Edition, which includes the aforementioned add-ons and base games for $59.99.
For players thinking of returning to play Aliens: Fireteam Elite, developer Cold Iron Studios made it even easier to play with friends last month, thanks to a new cross-play feature that allows multiplatform co-op on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox. Read polygon review to see if this game is for you.
