Cold Iron Studios has unveiled a new expansion for Aliens: Fireteam Elite titled Pathogen.
The expansion, which is due to release in August, takes players to planet LV-895 where a mysterious pathogen is mutating Xenomorphs and local wildlife. Play through three new missions that make up the Pathogen campaign while searching for the source of this new threat.
In addition to new story missions, Pathogen introduces eight new weapons, a new perk for each Class Kit, 26 weapon attachments that modify stats, 21 weapon colors, nine decals, and 10 emotes.
Accompanying the Pathogen expansion will be a free update that brings with it a Hardcore mode. “In this mode, marines will be faced with an extreme survival challenge that will test their resolve and mental fortitude,” the developer explains.
Pathogen launches August 30th for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
