Snapshot Games has been working on a new sci-fi strategy game from the creator of XCOM, called Phoenix Point. The game is nearly ready for release and debuted its big trailer today at E3.
Forget how you played other strategy titles, because Phoenix Point reinvents the rules. You’re facing an army of alien attackers who not only adapt over time to your battle style, but evolve and transform, gaining resistance to your most effective attacks. In turn, YOU will have to evolve and advance your own battle strategies to stay one step ahead.
“Phoenix Point is a new take on strategy and tactics,” says a statement from Snapshot. “Plan operations, research new technologies, and build alliances to unite the planet or destroy your rivals, then customize your squad and deploy into conflict zones around the globe with dynamic objectives and destructible environments.” The game also uses procedurally generated maps and branching story paths to keep each game different.
You’ll be able to find Phoenix Point on the XBox One (it’s included in XBox Game Pass too), the PC and the Mac (the latter two via Epic Games Store). Look for it September 3.
