Aliens: Fireteam Elite Season 2 is out now, bringing with it a new game mode and, even better, it’s completely free.
“Point Defence” tasks you with defending and repairing three locations, ensuring that the Xenomorphs don’t ruin your day. How you and your team-mates handle this is entirely up to you but we suspect that you’ll have a better time of it if you’re with actual human players, not the slightly unreliable in-game androids.
Aside from this new mode, Season 2 brings with it some new cosmetics and weapons, which are purchased with the points you earn in-game. In total there are:
- 4 New Weapons
- 13 New Attachments
- 2 Head Accessories
- 3 Weapon Colorways
- 5 Decals
- 5 Emotes
But here’s the important news. One of those two head accessories is a Santa Hat. Yes, you can slaughter your way through the Alien hordes while wearing a seasonal headpiece. But there’s also bad news too – there’s no beard. But don’t let that stop you from yelling “Ho Ho Ho!” as the horrifying, double-jawed monstrosities bear down upon your position, ready to make your Christmas less than merry.
Season 2 is out now, available across all platforms, PC and console alike, and should be delivered as an update the next time you launch Aliens: Fireteam Elite online.
