Aliens: Fireteam ESRB Rating Hints At New Enemy Types, Details Violence and Gore
Aliens: Fireteam is releasing soon for all major platforms. ESRB has given the game a Mature rating while their description hints at some new details.
Aliens: Fireteam was announced earlier this year. It is a brand new third-person shooter that also supports co-op and it is set in the Aliens universe. The game features up to three-player co-op in the main campaign that features more than 20 enemy types, however, ESRB has revealed that there will additional threats aside from the various types of Aliens.
In their rating for Aliens: Fireteam, they have detailed the gore, violence, and various weapons and enemies that the players will encounter in the game.
This is a third-person shooter in which players assume the role of a marine battling hordes of alien creatures in a futuristic setting. Players use pistols, machine guns, chain guns, and explosives to kill aliens and other beings (e.g., zombie-like creatures, synthetic androids) in frenetic combat. Aliens emit large amounts of mostly green blood when shot; explosive weapons cause enemies to break apart into chunks of flesh. Dead humans are found throughout the game, with their chest cavities burst open from a xenomorph (i.e., alien) emerging. During the course of the game, brief cutscenes are sometimes triggered when an alien kills a human character: aliens impaling soldiers with their spiked tails; soldiers stabbed in the face; humans getting grabbed and mauled by face-huggers—large amounts of blood spray accompany these close-up kills. The words “f**k,” “sh*t,” and “a*shole” appear in the dialogue.
Based on this description, fans of the series have a lot to look forward to in the game. Aliens might be a threat themselves but there are additional enemies to tackle like the synthetics androids or Alien-controlled humans.
Aliens: Fireteam will be out later this Summer for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and PC.
