Developer Cold Iron Studios have announced Xbox Game Pass adds Aliens: Fireteam Elite in December 2021 alongside a big Season 2 update for the game on PC and consoles.
While Xbox Game Pass adds Aliens: Fireteam Elite on December 14th for PC and consoles, the Season 2 update comes in four parts and is included with the Deluxe Edition of the game for $69.99, or both separately and individually for $9.99 each. You can also upgrade the standard edition of the game to the Deluxe Edition.
Here’s a rundown on Season 2:
Following the September release of Season 1: Phalanx, this new season includes free items for all players, including a new mode called Point Defense. This fast-paced alternative to Horde Mode will challenge players in a new survival-based defensive match where your fireteam must protect, repair, and hold 3 different strategic points through multiple attack waves from the xenomorph hive. Players may buy temporary consumables to even the odds by utilizing Fabrication Points earned during the mode and can unlock up to 20 new rewards by completing the mode at various difficulties.
Season 2: Point Defense features the following free content:
- New Game Mode: Point Defense.
- New Feature: Lifetime Stats
- New weapons, attachments, and cosmetics added to the game as Point Defense rewards or at the in-game store.
- New challenge cards.
Coinciding with the release of Season 2, the second Endeavor Pass DLC Pack, The Nostromo Salvage Pack, will also be made available. Emerging from a 57-year hypersleep, this pack includes over 20 exclusive items, including two Nostromo-themed class kit skin designs, eight weapon colors, four decals, four head accessories, four emotes, and more!
