If this is anything like the excellent World War Z game, then I'm wholly onboard.

It has online co-op. Iíve played dozens of hours of WWZ, all with randoms, and itís still great.

A new Alien game, more shooter based I think.

Eh, wish it was FPS. Looks ok, but not really for me.

The price is right for the PS5. I'm cautious, though. I'll wait for some reviews. This looks like a 180 on what Isolation was.

Yeah, definitely wait for reviews and impressions. A mediocre single-player game can still be enjoyable if you're in the right mindset. A mediocre multiplayer-only game immediately becomes a coaster like Brink or Evolve and isn't worth picking up for free as it's a wasteland with nobody online.

So this has no single player campaign at all right?

I got burned hard by the Predator game, but I’m taking a chance on this. My friends and I are sick of playing fall guys.

Wow, even the assault rifle sounds like in Aliens. This looks awesome. I think I read does have single player, but like very short. One article said 4 hours. Yikes. If co-op can you play with randos and quit when want and same level and stats when don and boot back up another time?

That is a weird binary game selection.

Re: Aliens: Fireteam (2021, PC, Playstation, Xbox)

It’s hard to get a group to decide on one game. We played Red Dead all through the early pandemic. After that we splintered off. I’m not a sports guy so some of us played Friday the 13th and Predator. Everyone came back together on Fall Guys. It’s fun especially when you’re hammered, which we usually are.
In reality we are just waiting for winter and maybe another lockdown to go back to Red Dead.

Not looking too good. This is PC. PS fares little better, but not much…

I really want it for nostalgia sake. It at least looks and sounds so authentic. Anyone actually preorder? What, this is out tomorrow? Wonder if any will play…

how much on PS5? Is this an optimized game? One thing review said was no saves in mission. You die, you go to beginning of mission and some are long. Donít like thatÖ

Re: Aliens: Fireteam (2021, PC, Playstation, Xbox)

i've seen only a couple of Reviews...a 7/10 and a 8/10. I did see a PC gaming Site listed 5-6 Reviews from PC Sites and they were 6 to 8 range. The general Pros was...Fun, entertaining action gameplay with all various types, upgrading character and just blowing hordes of Aliens to bits while challenging, visual and audio impressive...Cons was...can feel and get repetitive, solo is almost impossible at higher levels

This and Return To Salem’s Lot are currently getting soaked on my front porch. If the wind doesn’t take them away, I’ll be installing and updating tonight.
