Aliens: Fireteam Announced

A new Aliens: Fireteam Website heralds the coming of a new co-op third-person shooter set in the Aliens universe, where no one can hear you scream. This is expected for PC and consoles this summer, with the PC edition coming to Steam. Developer Cold Iron offers an Announce Trailer and these details:
2202. A mysterious distress call reroutes your Marine Assault Unit to LV-895 in the outer colonies, where deadly Xenomorph legions, hidden corporate secrets, and ancient alien ruins await your arrival.

Set in the iconic Alien universe, Aliens: Fireteam is a cooperative third-person survival shooter that drops your fireteam of hardened marines into a desperate fight to contain the Xenomorph threat.

Face off against waves of terrifying Xenomorph and Weyland-Yutani Synthetic foes alongside two players or AI teammates, as you and your fireteam desperately fight your way through four unique campaigns that introduce new storylines to the Alien universe. Create and customize your own Colonial Marine, choosing from an extensive variety of classes, weapons, gear and perks, battling overwhelming odds in this heart-pounding survival shooter experience.

Maybe one day we'll get a great Aliens co-op experience. You know, add some depth to it and don't copy the Gears of War gameplay loop. Let's hope the devs don't f* this one up with consolitis and crap like that

I'm gonna be blunt. This looks like shit. Total and utter garbage. A third person cover shooter? Really, that's the legacy of AvP and AvP2? (Don't get me started on A:CM)

Console dreck IMO. Where is a new AvP fps? Or just an Aliens fps? Or how about that Aliens rpg? Like Dying Light but with Aliens and on some foreign planet instead of a city? Developers? Hello? Do your read me?

I think it would have better if this were a turned-based and real-time tactical strategy like X-COM (with the ability to toggle between turn-based or real-time) along with co-op with up to four other players. It seems like the devs are just regurgitating the same tired formula that failed multiple entries.

Ugh, didn't know this was going to be THIRD-PERSON. *interest level "detensifies"*

Alien-related multiplayer offerings have been pretty mediocre over the past two decades or so. The only MP mode in the last AvP game which I had fun with was Infestation - and that's pretty much long dead now. A:CM's multiplayer was generally bleh, but I did have a blast with the Bug Hunt DLC for awhile - again while it actually still had players. And this? Not even going to be cautiously optimistic at this stage. I see it's on Steam for wishlisting already so I'll keep an eye on it and see what more is on the table here.

Argh, I was hoping for a first person option here. I may still have to get it anyway, but it can't be as good in 3rd person. I so desperately want a good first person co-op Aliens game.

Seems like this would have been the perfect IP to use the engine/environment from GTFO. 4-player co-op sneak/aggressive bug-hunt.

Anyone playing GTFO? And if so, what you think?

It's on my radar, but not interested until it's out of early access.

For the few hours I played it with two friends, I liked it and got frustrated by it. Reminded me of Dark Souls, where 'difficulty' was basically 'haha hope you brought Vaseline'. You definitely have to communicate with your team mates, and even then, when something goes wrong, it goes wrong SPECTACULARLY.
There's no scaling in difficulty to the game. You got in solo? GOOD LUCK, MEAT. You go with friends? Your chances get marginally better.

There's adjustments that need to be made to the game, for sure, but if you want somethin' like Left 4 Dead, but way creepier, I'd recommend. Only if you got 3 other souls willing to consign themselves to a hell of a ride.
