Point Defense mode will bring a faster pace to the game
“Following the release of ‘Season 1: Phalanx’, this new season includes free items for all players, including a new mode called ‘Point Defense,'” explains an official statement from Cold Iron Studios.
The new mode of Aliens: Fireteam Elite will stand out for bringing a faster pace than the Horde mode. In it, the team will have to protect, repair and defend three different strategic points. Meanwhile, they will be attacked by multiple waves of xenomorphs.
Players will still be able to purchase up to 20 temporary consumables to balance combat against the aliens. For this, they will use the Craft Points earned during the match itself.
