Pathogen introduces an all-new campaign that explores the deadly effects of the black goo infection inspired by the Alien universe. This pathogen can change not only local flora and fauna but also any Xenomorphs exposed to it, causing them to hunt and kill anything they can find, including non-mutated Xenomorphs.
Showcasing multiple sneak peeks at what players can expect in the expansion, the new Pathogen trailer highlights players’ first-ever head-to-head boss encounter in Aliens Fireteam Elite. Three-person Fireteams will have to dive deep into a mutated enemy hive to outsmart and overcome a terrifyingly mutated Xenomorph Queen.
In addition to a slew of cosmetics, weapons, and weapon attachments, all players will also get a new, free Hardcore Mode that will test their skills in increasingly difficult battles, which may result in permadeath. Alongside the July update’s Crossplay feature, it is easier than ever to find your Fireteam and get fighting!
