Following a global environmental disaster, the Pandoravirus appeared and began
reshaping creatures, including humans, into hideous mutants. Unable to stop the
progress of the virus, much of human civilization was wiped out -- only small
enclaves remain, separated by their principles and the vast landscape. The
Phoenix Project, an ancient failsafe against global catastrophe is the only hope
to unite mankind and take back the planet.
Lead the Phoenix Project from its base at Phoenix Point. Research and develop
new technologies and techniques, plan operations, build alliances to unite the
planet-- or simply destroy your rivals. It's up to you to save the planet and
rebuild civilization, but there may be much more to the alien threat than meets
- Mutating Alien Menace: Face down an ever-changing alien threat that
adapts to your tactics and offers no respite even as your team becomes more
powerful and technologically advanced.
- Uncover the Secrets of the Pandoravirus: Phoenix Point features a
complex narrative, with multiple endings that the player can only uncover
via multiple playthroughs. Discover a secret history, as you learn about the
origins of the mutants, the Pandoravirus, and Phoenix Point itself through
exploration, diplomacy, and research.
- Manage Diplomatic Relations: The Phoenix Project is not the only
organization trying to reclaim the Earth. The militaristic New Jericho, the
mystical Disciples of Anu, and the technophiles of Synedrion all offer
unique rewards for co-operation and threats for opposition. It is up to you
to decide how, or even if, to deal with them.
- Take Aim on the Battlefield: In addition to equipping and commanding
units, Phoenix Point lets you take direct control of your soldier's shots in
combat, with a unique free-aiming system. Target enemy weakspots, weapons,
or valuables, or just go for center mass.
- Next-Gen Tech with Classic Pedigree: Phoenix Point was designed by
Julian Gollop, the creator of the X-COM series in the 1990s. Keeping the
core ethos of X-COM while updating the visuals, technology, and systems to
modern standards has made Phoenix Point best-in-class.
