Learn about the state of the world, the new factions and the return of Project Phoenix.
After many years in development, Phoenix Point will be launching next week. As a spiritual successor to X-COM with original creator Julian Gollop at the helm, Phoenix Point promises to offer a new kind of war against an alien foe. Check out the recent trailer below which outlines the current state of the world.
Essentially, thanks to an alien threat, the world is pretty much in shambles. Three factions are in charge and at odds with each other. In the midst of this, it’s time for the Phoenix Project to return and effectively root out the aliens.
Phoenix Point was slated to release in June 2019 for PC. It was subsequently delayed to September and then again to December 3rd. Given the amount of time and polish its received, it’ll be interesting to see just how well the game compares to titles like XCOM 2. Though Phoenix Point is a timed exclusive to the Epic Games Store on PC, it will also be available on Xbox Games Pass for PC.
