Season 2 of Aliens: Fireteam Elite includes new mode and more, starts on 12/14

Focus Entertainment’s well-received multiplayer Aliens game, Fireteam Elite is getting a fewest dose of both paid and free DLC this month.

Tis the season

The temps are dropping, the snow is falling, and the xenomorphs are swarming. Yes, it must be time for the second season of content for Aliens: Fireteam Elite. The online multiplayer action title is actually about to get two DLC packs, with one being paid and the chunkier one landing for free.

The Season 2 pack includes quite a bit indeed, with a brand new game mode that spins out of the now-familiar Horde Mode theme, and lots more.

It includes:

  • 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.

Following the September release of Season 1: Phalanxthis 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.

But remember, the free content isn’t all that’s inbound. There’s also a paid DLC Endeavor Pass pack that’ll include a number of callbacks to the original Alien film.

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!

Free or paid, both packs of fresh content arrive on December 14th for all versions of Aliens: Fireteam Eilte.
