Aliens: Fireteam Elite achievement list drops two months early

By Luke Albigés,
It's been a busy day for Aliens: Fireteam Elite, with a premature BestBuy listing showing off the new title, $40 price, and August release date before the team took to Twitter to make it all official. Since we already know everything else about the game, why not get the achievements out there early, too?

Aliens: Fireteam Elite Achievements

There are 42 achievements worth a total of 1,000 Gamerscore. Surprisingly, none of these are secret, so be wary of potential spoilers, if you care about that kind of thing. Some of these look pretty nasty, but we'll have to wait and see just how insane the Insane difficulty is before we know what we're up against. There are some of those wonderful collectibles in there for good measure, as well of tons of cumulative ones... those difficulty ones had better stack, or strong words will be shared. Take a look at the full list and let us know what you think!
