The Week In Games: Aliens Vs. Predator

Prepare for an alien invasion as two different games featuring aliens both release this week. The launch of the surprise XCOM spin-off Chimera Squad and the asymmetrical multiplayer game Predator: Hunting Grounds.

I dig taking popular franchises and building out weird and smaller spin-offs. This new XCOM game might be a total flop and that’s okay. It won’t hurt the next big XCOM game. But if Chimera Squad is really good and successful, it could be a neat way to get more XCOM and tell different stories in that universe.

Beyond XCOM and Predator: Hunting Grounds, other stuff is coming out too. Check out the full list below:
