Phoenix Point: Year One Edition Released

The Phoenix Point: Year One Edition is now available on the Epic Games Store and now that a year has passed the game's exclusivity is over and it can be purchased on, and Steam, as well. Snapshot Games calls The Year One Edition the definitive version of this turn-based strategy game from X-COM creator Julian Gollop. It includes all the game's previous DLC along with a "massive" new Polaris update that adds new content and features. Owners of the Epic Games Store version can update at a discounted price for a limited time. Here's the Release Trailer and here are details on the Polaris update:
Phoenix Point: Year One Edition’s launch today coincides with the game’s massive new Polaris update, which adds new content and features driven by community feedback, including:

  • A brand-new tutorial prologue that introduces new characters, cinematics, and maps while teaching the core gameplay fundamentals.
  • New weapons and equipment with their own research tracts, including a riot shield, shotgun, grenade launcher and heavy cannon.
  • A new contextual pop-up help system integrated throughout the entire game.
  • New menu screens with updated info, plusa wide range of gameplay improvements, balance updates and more.

Phoenix Point delivers a new breed of turn-based strategy and action against alien invaders. Build global alliances, manage your base, and command your forces in intense battles with dynamic objectives and destructible environments. Procedurally generated maps, branching storylines with multiple endings, and enemies that mutate to counter your tactics ensure no two playthroughs are ever the same. That experience has grown even further post-launch with new DLC and updates featuring bonus story missions, cinematics, maps, weapons, abilities, factions and more, all included in the Year One Edition!

So anyone try this version? I mean I bought in on release (as I am a sucker for these types of games) but man was I burned. The tactical gameplay itself was very promising, but there were so many incomplete or badly thought out gameplay loops (especially in the strategic layer) that the game felt WRONG somehow. No sense of progression or getting anywhere really with the research etc. (I remember that particular part of the game being very bare-bones and so bland that I can't even remember how it worked exactly)

SO yeah, very interested in the complete product (if this is finally it) and whether the game is actually good now.

I haven't played it for a while as I also had a similar experience - seemed promising to start with, but the more I played it the more didn't seem right about it. I've been keeping an eye on the forums. Now it's on Steam, the reviews are good for a gander. When it feels right I'll try the base game again. If I like it enough then I'll get the DLC.
