Don't miss your chance to play this sci-fi co-op shooter on Xbox Game Pass

For any sci-fi horror fan, it's hard to imagine a world without 1979's Alien - or its myriad sequels and spin-offs. Luckily, we don't have to ponder such a meaningless existence; there's still time to get stuck into its action shooter successor before it leaves Xbox Game Pass for good. Aliens: Fireteam Elite is one of the 11 games set to pack up and head out of the Game Pass roster on December 15. Sure, we'll be consoled by 11 new titles to sink our Facehuggers into, but now's as good a time as ever to head to the USS Endeavor for one last alien-blasting hurrah with your friends. Think Warzone, but with Xenomorphs and a storyline. It's always a bittersweet time when Xbox Game Pass announces its comings and goings. Although 11 new games certainly won't go amiss, especially if you're one of the lucky new owners of an Xbox Series S after it cleaned up on Cyber Monday, there's something special to be said about Aliens: Fireteam Elite that will be hard to find in another title. Whether it's the nostalgia factor or the bizarre enemies you go up against, it's definitely worth a gander before it leaves the service. You play as a Colonial Marine heading out into the expansive battleground of outer space, answering a distress call. What you find is more than just a spaceship wreck. You and your team quickly learn that an extraterrestrial experiment has gone horribly wrong. If you've always been a bit put off by the litany of Alien films and movies as a person who scares easily, you don't need to panic heading into Fireteam Elite.
