UFO2Extraterrestrials Delay

The UFO2Extraterrestrials Website has word of a delay to UFO2Extraterrestrials: Shadows over Earth, a prequel to UFO: Extraterrestrials that we weren't actually aware was in development. The XCOM-style tactical combat game is said to be expected in March 2012, and a delay is appropriate for this series, since the original game was delayed on more than five occassions. Word is: "The development studio Chaos Concept has decided to spend more time improving the design of the global gameplay as well as the tactical combat. Some of the extra development time will be devoted to adding new features based on feedback by the fans at" Here's word on the planned additional features:

  • Alien mobile fortresses which the player must battle on both the globe and in tactical combat.
  • New player-controlled aircraft, including several types of helicopters. Different aircraft will have different combat capabilities forcing the player to use the right craft for the right job.
  • More varied alien abilities in tactical combat to keep the players on their toes. For example, the Magetra have the unique ability to consume dead aliens and humans to heal and energize themselves during combat.
  • More varied tactical combat mission types.
