RAM Pressure Announced

Russian studios GDT and QuadCom announce RAM Pressure, which we assume is a PC building sim, but turns out to be a third-person multiplayer tactical game coming to Steam in Q1 2019. They are not afraid to put pressure on themselves by invoking comparisons to the beloved X-COM series. The announce trailer shows off gameplay, and the announcement provides more details:
In the near future, Earth is hit by an unusual meteorite swarm: the remains of alien fleets decimated by an ancient galactic war. To avoid widespread panic, world governments hide the truth from the population by sending elite mercenary squads to crash sites – gaining access to the alien technology before anyone else can do the same. As leaders of competing paramilitary organizations, players have to successfully scout, secure, and deliver the weapons and intel found in each alien crash site to paying governments indifferent to loss of life. In time – while performing extremely dangerous incursions for alien artifacts – players begin to lift the veil behind government conspiracies and state-sponsored attempts to use alien technology to control the world’s population. This is only the tip of the iceberg as far as “first contact” goes: Humanity faces a much more serious threat that could lead to the total eradication of mankind.

In RAM Pressure, players will engage in pitched battles against other units as well hostile intelligence services. The goal? Establish contact with any surviving alien beings and uncover the factors that led to the extinction of their civilization. To succeed, players will need to equip and customize their soldiers to make them a well oiled, effective fighting force … eventually gaining knowledge of secrets literally beyond imagination.
