Aliens: Fireteam Elite gets a release date: the co-op survival game is coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S on August 24.

The game is a three-player cooperative survival shooter set in the Alien universe – understandably – and was previously known as just Aliens: Fireteam.

The third-person movement and the moment-to-moment of the alien-repelling combat look to be similar to World War Z, if you’re wondering what the actual experience of playing the game will be like.

As per a new press release, Aliens: Fireteam Elite will offer four story-driven campaigns that you can play through, and give you customizable Colonial Marines to deploy against the Xenomorph threat. As well as newly multi-colored aliens, Cold Iron Studios also seems to be teasing that rogue Weyland Yutani androids will be on the hunt, too.

Take a look at the new trailer below.

The game is designed to be a co-op experience, but you will be able to play through the campaign solo with AI teammates if you’re more of the lone wolf type.

If you’re into your more premium versions of games, there’s a deluxe edition of Aliens: Fireteam Elite that will set you back $69.99. It comes with four cosmetic DLC bundles that including class kit skins, weapon colors, and head accessories.

Deluxe Edition or not, you’ll get “free major gameplay updates” as time goes on – whether that means new campaigns and so on remains to be seen.

Aliens: Fireteam Elite arrives on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X and S on August 24.
