Minimum and recommended system requirements have also been revealed.
Snapshot Games’ Phoenix Point, a spiritual successor to X-COM, is releasing on September 3rd for PC. Though it’s on the Epic Games Store, like 4A Games’ Metro Exodus, it will also be available on Xbox Game Pass for PC. Check out the newest trailer below.
Developed by the original creator behind X-COM, Phoenix Point sees players battling enemy forces that will evolve and become tougher over time. However, your troops also have the same option and can choose to evolve further in an effort to defeat the aliens. The game’s tactical combat also evokes that X-COM feeling quite nicely with different classes, specializations and human factions to choose from.
So despite the exclusivity agreement with Epic Games Store, Phoenix Point can also be picked up on the Microsoft Store for PC. Yes, we don’t get it either. Regardless, if you pick up Xbox Game Pass for PC at $5, you get access to Phoenix Point as soon as it launches. Check out the system requirements for the Epic Games Store version below.
