You might think that a tough squad of evil Marines — like a team of firefighters, for example — might just be a group of tough guys with guns. But that’s not really the case with Aliens: Fireteam Elite, the co-op shooter that will arrive in August, which will give players five different classes to choose from, three of which are detailed today.
To be fair, the Demolisher is in fact a very tough guy with an extremely large pistol: in addition to the standard powder rifle, they also carry a heavy weapon, like the L56A3 Smartgun, which includes an amazing punch, but has pretty tight ammo. . limitations. They can also deploy an "explosive wave" that will drop enemies and can fire "micro rockets" that can be improved by character progression with incendiary or concussive effects.
The following is the Doc, duly known as the "Field Medical Service Technician," who can heal wounded troops and increase combat effectiveness by handing out panties that increase accuracy, stability, and regeneration. endurance and speed of movement. It seems like the kind of thing that would be illegal (or at least very unethical) in the real world, but in reality that kind of thing has been happening decades, and can be the most realistic part of the game. Docs comes into the fight with a powder rifle and a .50 caliber pistol.
The third addition to the list is the Recon class, a specialized troop with the ability to reveal enemy positions and summon support drones that replenish ammunition supplies and increase the accuracy of all members of the fair. The Recon class also serves as a squad sniper and carries a "close weapon" for backup; their drones can be upgraded by progressing to track and clear specific targets, or to defend an area as a "guard dog."
Two more classes have already been announced, but not quite detailed: the gunner is the basic bad (but very effective), with a powder rifle, nearby weapons, grenades, increased firepower and stackable damage bonuses, and the technician, who can set up sentry turrets (which can be improved by character progression) and "loaded reels" that impact and slow down enemies.
Rather like movies, Aliens: Fireteam Elite takes a more direct and direct approach to xenomorphs than its immediate predecessor, in this case Alien: Isolation. We said in our March preview that it "feels like a step back" after this singularly brilliant experience, but sometimes all you want to do is grab a gun and have fun, and hopefully that's it. what Aliens will offer: Fireteam Elite. It is scheduled to be released on August 24 and you can find out more at aliensfireteamelite.com.
