Xenonauts 1.0 Out; Official Launch This Month

A Steam Community Announcement has word that Xenonauts 1.0 is available as of last Saturday, saying this "marks the end of formal development" of the XCOM-inspired strategy game (thanks nin via Rock, Paper, Shotgun). This means the game will soon leave Early Access on Steam, a move Goldhawk Interactive explains is tentatively set for June 16th. They will be using the time between now and then to clear up any remaining bugs, and explain the implications of playing the game now versus when it's officially released:

There have been a lot of changes made since the previous Stable version. The game has a much smoother difficulty curve, more information for new players, new line of sight mechanics, much improved AI and all sorts of finer polish.

The choice is therefore up to you whether you want to play the "final" version of the game now or whether you'd prefer to wait a couple of weeks to make sure any stability kinks have been ironed out. We'll make more of a song and dance about the release when it comes to the 16th, but I thought it was best to explain this update and make it available to anyone who did not want to wait that long!
