Snapshot Games’ Phoenix Point, a spiritual successor to X-COM by creator Julian Gollop, is out next week. To celebrate the upcoming launch, the developer has a new launch trailer. Check it out below, complete with bugs both big and small.
Taking place in the year 2047, Phoenix Point is about the Earth being overrun by an outbreak of the Pandoravirus. Mankind is more or less decimated with three factions vying for control and all kinds of nightmarish creatures running around. It’s up to the Phoenix Project to restore order, if not ensure humanity’s survival.
Along with tactical turn-based strategy combat, players will have to deal with enemies that evolve with each new battle. Sabotaging the other factions, amassing resources and mounting an offensive are just a few things that players will have to do. Phoenix Point is out on December 3rd for PC via the Epic Games Store. It comes to Xbox One in Q1 2020 and PS4 later next year.
