Good news marines! Aliens: Fireteam Elite is coming to Xbox Game Pass in just two weeks time, alongside the launch of the game's second season.
The co-op survival shooter set in the Aliens universe first launched back in August, and has since added new free content, including new weapons, cosmetics, and a new shield-wielding class as part of Season 1: Phalanx. Now, Season 2: Point Defense will be launching on 14th December - the same day the game arrives on Xbox Game Pass - and will add new weapons, attachments, challenge cards, alongside new Lifetime Stats to view, as part of the free update
The big addition for this new season, however, is the new Point Defense game mode. This mode is described as a “fast-paced alternative to Horde Mode” and will see your fireteam protecting, repairing, and holding three different strategic points, all while fending off waves on Xenomorphs. Oh, and on the same day, the Nostromo Salvage Pack paid DLC will also launch, with a bunch of cosmetic items, including two class kit skin designs based on the first Alien movie.
