Aliens: Fireteam Elite reveals its first ever boss fight

Cold Iron Studios, Focus Entertainment and 20th Century Games are excited to announce the newest trailer for their brand new Aliens: Fireteam Elite: Pathogen expansion, now available to download on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. Get a first glimpse of the new threats awaiting you in today’s Launch Trailer.

There are also new editions launching:

  • The Ultimate Edition, which will include Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the Pathogen expansion, and all 5 Endeavor Pass cosmetic DLCs

  • The Ultimate Edition Upgrade for owners of Aliens: Fireteam Elite, which will include the Pathogen expansion as well as all 5 Endeavor Pass cosmetic DLCs

Pathogen introduces an all-new campaign which explores the deadly effects of the black goo infection inspired by the Alien universe. This pathogen can change not only local flora and fauna, but also any Xenomorphs exposed to it, causing them to hunt and kill anything they can find, including non-mutated Xenomorphs.

Showcasing multiple sneak peeks at what players can expect in the expansion, today’s Pathogen trailer highlights players’ first ever head-to-head boss encounter in Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Three-person Fireteams will have to dive deep into a mutated enemy hive to outsmart and overcome a terrifyingly mutated Xenomorph Queen.

In addition to a slew of cosmetics, weapons, and weapon attachments, all players will also get a new, free Hardcore Mode that will test their skills in increasingly difficult battles, which may result in permadeath. Alongside the July update’s Crossplay feature, it is easier than ever to find your Fireteam and get fighting!

The Pathogen Expansion features the following content:

  • 3 New Missions as a part of the Pathogen campaign, featuring new enemies and the Pathogen Queen boss fight!

  • 8 New Weapons, 2 for each weapon type

  • 1 New Perk for each Class Kit that modifies the player’s main ability

  • 13 New Weapon Attachments that modify stats and grant special traits

  • 2 New Outfits and 6 Head Accessories

  • 21 New Weapon Colors and 10 Decals for gun customization

  • 10 New Emotes for interacting within Fireteams

Aliens: Fireteam Elite, its Pathogen Expansion, the Ultimate Edition and the Ultimate Edition Upgrade are now available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. For more information, visit the Focus Entertainment website.
