Two of the Aliens: Fireteam character classes are shown off so we can see how it will bring more of the Aliens IP over to this title
We might have only just been introduced to Aliens: Fireteam not that long ago, but that does not mean that Cold Iron Studios is not ready to dump the details on us all. In fact, we have over a half-hour of gameplay to look and digest here just from this week alone. Some of which take a bit of a dive into two of the five character classes we will get to play as in Aliens: Fireteam. Specifically, the Gunner and the Technician so we can start our prep for how we are going to tackle it all out there. Even if we still have some time before the game is poised to hit us in the Summer of this year. Something that is also still set a little vaguer than expected.
If both of these classes look familiar, you would be correct as they are stated to be the ones that are closely linked to the marines we have seen in the Aliens films up to now. The gunner is one of the classes that is the most all-around shooter as the name implies. The Technician, while able to gun things down too, is much more focused on setting out turrets and other devices to slow or stun the Aliens for the rest of the team. Given that our teams will be made up of three players each time, we will need to see how well they all work with not only our own skills but also synergize between each too. You can see these classes a bit more below with some of their perks and then a full twenty-five minutes of gameplay to take in shortly after that. Like I said, there is a whole lot of gameplay to enjoy here.

Aliens: Fireteam — Exclusive 25 Minutes Of Gameplay

This is a 25 minutes first look of early mission gameplay that cuts back and forth between the perspectives of developers Craig Zinkievich (CEO, Cold Iron Studios) Matt Highison (CCO, Cold Iron Studios), and IGN’s Ryan McCaffrey.
Do you feel like these classes are the closest to what we have seen in the Aliens IP so far or do they have just bits and pieces of each? Do either of these classes seem to fit your play style or will it be one of the other three that will be your main go-to? Do you think that there will be enough variety to all of the missions and campaigns to keep coming back to or will it fizzle out after we go through a few times? Let us all know down in the comments and then feel free to discuss it all as you wish. If there is more for Aliens: Fireteam, we will certainly add it to the site for you. Be sure to keep checking back in for all of that and everything else that comes about over time.
