Phoenix Point in September

Snapshot Games announces a September 3rd release date for Phoenix Point, the upcoming science fiction strategy game from Julian Gollop, one of the creators of the original X-COM series. Word is the Windows and macOS editions will be offered through the Epic Games Store:

Snapshot Games announced today as part of Microsoft’s Inside Xbox presentation that Phoenix Point, the upcoming sci-fi strategy game from the creator of the original X-COM series, is expected to launch on Sept. 3, 2019, on the Microsoft Store and with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, as well as the Epic Games store for PC and Mac.

A new cinematic trailer titled “Next Life” sets the stage for the changing face of war in Phoenix Point. Led by a massive Alien Queen, the game’s enemies transform and evolve according to the choices players make over time. Given the power to mutate their own troops to gain an advantage, Earth’s last desperate defenders will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to sacrifice to save mankind from this ever-changing extraterrestrial threat.

Phoenix Point is a new take on strategy and tactics. 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. Procedurally generated maps and branching storylines mean no two playthroughs are the same.

Oh right, EGS exclusive = hard pass.

September 2020, available on Steam... soft pass. I don't reward developers who engage in deception.

Better yet, buy it through the Humble store and change the amount given to the devs to 0.

If it's any good I'll pick it up on Steam when they run it at a 66% discount, and they can make a whopping 22% of the list price on my purchase instead of me purchasing it at the 10-15% discount mark.

Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishfull thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and freedoms.

Well if you contributed to the Fig/Kickstarter/crowd funding, supposedly you get an Epic key as well as later on a Gog/Steam key. Mildly placated.

*Disclaimer: I contributed via Fig years ago, before Epic's current bullshit was even a rumor.
