Aliens: Fireteam Elite was one of the more surprisingly decent titles to come out of 2021. Our review from August sings its praises, yet today the second season of additional free content for the game – Season 2: Point Defense – releases.
Coming free of charge for all players on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4 and PC players, expect to be treated to a brand new iteration of the co-op shooter in the form of the Point Defense mode. Much like the Horde Mode we have become accustomed to, Point Defense takes the traditional wave-based formula and tasks you with defending three points, deploying a range of temporary consumables that can be purchased with the Fabrication Points you earn during each wave.
As well as the in-game rewards you can earn through playing Point Defense, Season 2 also comes with some brand new weapons, attachments and cosmetics that can be obtained through play or through the in-game store, and veteran players will be excited to hear the addition of Lifetime Stats, allowing you to brag to the rest of your fireteam at just how many xenomorphs you have disposed of. Finally, a few new challenge cards have been included to extend play time throughout the season.
Alongside the free release of Season 2: Point Defense, the second part of the paid Endeavour Pass DLC (titled the Nostromo Salvage Pack) is releasing, providing players with a number of cosmetic items themed around the USCSS Nostromo ship of Alien folklore. All packs released under the Endeavour Pass umbrella – including this Nostromo Salvage Pack, come part of the Aliens: Fireteam Elite Deluxe Edition (currently £57.99), or can be purchased individually for £7.99.
