It's time to combat the Xenomorph threat. Aliens: Fireteam Elite is out now, but is it on Xbox Game Pass?
Set in the iconic Alien universe, this Sci-Fi co-op is a survival shooter that pits a group of Colonial Marines against the horrors of space. Players create their own Colonial Marine and team-up with friends to fight against waves of Xenomorphs and Weyland-Yutani Synthetics.
The game takes its lore from the Alien franchise and intertwines it with some new storylines. Judging from focus on the Colonial Marines, it's clear that the game takes a lot of its inspiration from James Cameron's 1986 sequel Aliens. Players should expect more of a focus on action than survival horror. That's not to say that players won't be tested - judging from the trailer the Xenomorphs are just as hostile and horrific as ever.
So, is this next step for the Alien game franchise on Xbox Game Pass?
