ALIENS: FIRETEAM ELITE - PATHOGEN

GRAPHIC DESIGN, MOTION GRAPHICS, VIDEO EDITING, AND GAMEPLAY CAPTURE

Overview

Pathogen is an expansion of Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Continuing the AFE story with new environments, maps, cosmetics and a campaign. Developed by Cold Iron Studios and published by Focus Home Interactive. 

Videos

Teaser and Reveals | Our marketing team needed to promote the new expansion without spoiling any content. Utilizing the Unreal Engine, we placed Easter Eggs at specific locations allowing us to spark our veteran players’ curiosity. Our players had no idea what they would experience, so they repeatedly watched our videos greatly benefiting our engagement rates.

Graphic Designs

Storefront Screenshots | The screenshots had to emphasize the expansion’s new content while staying consistent with the Aliens’ brand identity.  While showcasing the new enemies and environments, I ensured that the playable characters were equipped with iconic weapons from the Aliens franchise, such as the M41A2 Pulse Rifle and the Smartgun.

Social Posts | We had to motivate our players to engage with our posts until our studio could ship a new patch. Thinking from our players’ perspectives, we assumed they would most likely converse about the new weapons and enemies. We also took this opportunity to experiment with visual styles and see what worked well with our players.
