Two years after its initial launch, Cold Iron Studios and Focus Entertainment have announced that they’ll be bringing Aliens: Fireteam Elite to the Nintendo Switch. And seeing as Alien Day isn’t too far away, it makes sense that the Switch version comes out on April 26th.
The Switch version of Fireteam Elite will be cloud based, similar to how Remedy handled the Switch version of Control. The Switch version will also be crossplay compatible with the previously-released PC and console versions.
Pre-orders for the Switch version of Aliens: Fireteam Elite are available via the Nintendo eShop, and come in three flavours: for three different versions of Aliens: the $29.99 standard base game, the “Into The Hive” edition for $39.99, and the Ultimate Edition for $59.99. The “Into The Hive” edition includes the base game and the Pathogen expansion, whereas the Ultimate Edition includes all that, plus the Endeavor Pass and Endeavor Veteran Pack. There is also a demo available now for you “try before you buy” types.
