Aliens: Fireteam Elite appears to focus less on narrative and more on shooting, burning, or blowing up hordes of aliens. It’s a third-person shooter, allowing you and a couple buddies to choose a class and kill some Xenomorphs.
You’ll have your pick of multiple classes, each with their own abilities, gear, and exceptionally loud weaponry.
Here’s the trailer (you can also watch it here):

“Players will face off against waves of terrifying Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes alongside two players or AI teammates, as you and your fireteam desperately fight your way through four unique campaigns that introduce new storylines to the Alien universe.
