Aliens: Fireteam Elite arrived nearly a year ago, and it's a fun if generally unremarkable co-op shooter. Since launch, developer Cold Iron Studios has been steadily supporting the game with post-launch updates, so it's probably a little better these days. The next update is a big one, as it brings cross-platform play, allowing you to squad up with players on other platforms.
Arriving on 26th July, the free update introduces crossplay across all modes, letting you get into games faster with a wider pool of people. However, that's not all we're getting. The update will also add four new weapons, a new game mode called Restock Turrets, and a revamped Prestige progression system.
This new system unlocks once you reach level 20. XP you earn from that point will go towards Prestige levels, of which there are 100. You're rewarded for ranking up your Prestige with fancy nameplates, and every 10 levels, you earn yet more cosmetics like outfits, decals, and other accessories.
You can see this all in the above trailer, which goes over the main points of the update. Are you still playing Aliens: Fireteam Elite? Reload in the comments section below.
Games getting crossplay is what I like to see - even if I'm not particularly interested in these specific ones. It's becoming more common and that's a good thing.
But did they add cross progression?
I bought this game day one... what an idiot I was... I regret every penny I've payed. And even some cosmetics won't make it any better.
I didnt mind the game, though i didnt pay for it as it was on gamepass.
I bought this day 1 and definitely enjoyed the very difficult but also very buggy journey to platinum. That said though, unless they add new trophies to the game (which it looks like will happen with the AUG 30th DLC release), I doubt I’ll be going back to it, as much as I enjoy the Aliens franchise.
One of my favorite shooters, I ended up getting platinum on both the PS5 & PS4 versions, cross play could be a good move as long as there's no hacking.
I have it on PS5 but haven’t played it much. I was hoping my friend would buy it so that we could play it together, but he didn’t. ☹️
It seemed a bit more of a low-budget game than I’d hoped—character models looked cheap…and once ya kill one alien, ya killed ‘em all…and ya gotta keep killin’ ‘em. Still, it’s playable and good for a quick action fix.
I got it for $20, and it’s just ok at that price point. For $15 or less, it’s worth a long, hard look. For $10 or less, I’d argue it’s a recommended buy.
@jgrangervikings1 Character models are pretty good on PS5 version...
