The recently announced Aliens: Fireteam – the third-person, three-player PvE co-op survival shooter set after the original Alien trilogy – isn’t just throwing you into the Alien-verse with friends to shoot at enemies you already know about, like Xenomorphs, Facehuggers, and Synthetics. It’s also adding some new entries into the Alien codex.
We’re spotlighting six of the new Xenomorph alien types you’ll run into in Fireteam in the gallery below. Say hello to the Runner, Drone, Praetorian, Prowler, Burster, and Spitter.
