Since then, a preview video and an interview have been released, but otherwise the game has remained a bit quiet. Today that silence has been broken, as the game launched on June 24. August announced. Shooter – now called Aliens:. Fireteam Elite – you can pre-order it now and get a bunch of bonuses in return, and you can check out the new gameplay trailer.

That’s the good news: The bad news is that Cold Iron Studios CEO Craig Zinkiewicz has confirmed that there will be no multiplatform game at launch. Although Zinkiewicz confirmed that there won’t be a cross-platform game, there will be a cross-platform game on different generations of consoles, in other words: PS4 and PS5 players will be able to compete against each other, and XBox One and Series X/S players will be able to compete against each other. Additionally, Zinkiewicz said that no cross-platform game will be made at this time, but that the possibility remains open to add this feature once the game launches.
