Take it to the Xenomorphs in style with this bonus content
It’s been a scant few months since we had the multiplayer centric Predator: Hunting Grounds - but a new alien threat is on the horizon.
On August 24th, 2021, we're getting Aliens Fireteam Elite, a third-person class based shooter with waves of everyone's favorite creepy xenomorphs, four co-op campaigns (with AI or multiplayer support at your space marine side), and over 20 types of enemies each with their own wily AI.
More games than ever have Deluxe Editions these days, and Aliens: Fireteam Elite is no exception. Let’s take a hunt down into the oozy H.R. Giger influenced hives and discover what bonus goodies lie within the Aliens: Fireteam Elite Deluxe Edition.
Harden your Marines
To start with, Aliens: Fireteam Elite Deluxe Edition comes with the base game and the Hardened Marine Pack Pre-Order Bonus; note that pre-ordering the Standard Edition also nets you the base game and Hardened Marine Pack.
Featuring a bandana head accessory, a Chestburster joke emote (could it be a kissy Chestburster?), and four different decals (the flames decal sounds promising), this will get you started with some cosmetics when you jump into the co-op fray.
Don't pass that Endeavor
Those wanting a load of cool cosmetics won’t be let down by the four Endeavor Passes included with pre-ordering the Deluxe Edition. Set to come out along with free Seasonal Releases Aliens: Fireteam Elite will receive, the Endeavor Passes will include DLC content such as skins, weapon colors, emotes, and decals.
It’s a nice surprise for a Deluxe Edition of a game to come with new content that rolls out throughout the year. One hopes the cosmetics will have fun references to films in the Aliens saga.
Veteran pack time
Available immediately upon launch with the Aliens: Fireteam Elite Deluxe Edition is the Endeavor Veteran Pack. Think of it as a loaded version of the kind of content in the already included Hardened Marine Pack.
Containing well over a dozen pieces of cosmetics, this content will give you plenty of ways to customize your soldier in match after match. Aside from the cosmetics, there is also an Heirloom Standoff Shotgun included as part of the Endeavor Veteran Pack.
Armor skins, helmets, weapon colors, challenge cards, emotes (how sloppy is the sloppy salute anyway?), and a weapon decal all make for a fully loaded package. Those who know their Aliens ships will enjoy the Vintage Sulaco Cap Head Accessory.
Time to pre-order!
So aside from the base game, pre-ordering the Aliens: Fireteam Elite Deluxe Edition nets gamers the Hardened Marine Pack, the upcoming four Endeavor Passes, and the Endeavor Veteran Packs. That’s over two dozen pieces of cosmetic content, the Heirloom Standoff Shotgun, and the pack of Random Challenge Cards, not to mention all the neat cosmetics that will come throughout the year from the Endeavor Passes. Seems like a no brainer for Aliens fans!
