Pathogen Expansion Adds a Lot More Content to Aliens: Fireteam Elite

A New Breed of Aliens

We just passed the one year anniversary of Aliens: Fireteam Elite’s release. Player count may have been dwindling since then from lack of post-launch content, but more is on the way. By the end of the month, the Pathogen Expansion will be available and add a lot more to the game.

On planet LV-895, a mysterious pathogen has emerged and mutated the wildlife, including the Xenomorphs. In the new campaign, the crew of the Endeavor must fight its way to the source of the pathogen and destroy it. The expansion’s campaign has three brand new missions to play.

As far as what else is included in the expansion, players will get 8 new weapons (2 for each weapon type), 1 new perk for each Class Kit, 13 new weapon attachments, 2 new outfits for each Class Kit, 6 new head accessories, 21 new weapon colors, 10 new decals, and 10 new emotes. A lot of new.

Players should bear in mind, not everything will be unlocked upon purchase and will have to be unlocked through progression. What good is new content if you won’t play it?

It also appears that there will be some sort of boss fight. The trailer shows a quick look at a larger Xenomorph, likely a queen. The Pathogen Expansion for Aliens: Fireteam Elite will be available on August 30th. There is also a new Aliens game in development by Survios.

Alien: Fireteam Elite is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
