Phoenix Point Tomorrow

With the Windows edition of Phoenix Point due for release tomorrow, an article called It's Time to Rise from the Ashes on the official website looks to pave the way for this turn-based strategy game designed by X-COM creator Julian Gollop. They once again feature the previously released Launch Trailer and offer some details for players with a lot of focus on how this will work for those who backed the project during development:
Phoenix Point is just a day away from launch (that’s Tuesday, December 3rd at 11am PT / 7pm GMT for those detail-oriented types among you). We’re all really excited for you to start playing the game we have been working on passionately for the past three years.

Here are a few things you need to know:

  • Emails containing your Phoenix Point keys for the Epic store were sent on Friday, November 29th from our email, and will be sent again, today, Monday, December 2nd, to those who didn’t open their Friday emails. If you can’t find the email with your key, please double check your spam, junk and promotion folders before contacting us. 95% of our emails regarding missing keys are found in these folders; checking there first saves you (and us) time.
  • The Epic Store keys we send you are package keys. That means they unlock all of your entitlements including any DLCs or digital items included in your tier with a single key. If you’re one of the people who qualify for a free season pass, your key will unlock that too. No need for multiple key redemptions.
  • If you purchased more than one copy of Phoenix Point, each key should be labelled by edition in the email you received.
  • If you have purchased the season pass separately, you will need to redeem the game key first, then the season pass key you received when you purchased that.
  • Sometimes, you may have to close and restart the Epic Games Store launcher for newly purchased items to appear in your library.
  • There are no preloads on the Epic Games Store, so everything you redeem will show as “unavailable” until 11 AM Pacific Time on December 3, 2019.
  • The full game is independent of the Backer Build. It will not overwrite the Backer Build in your Epic Games account and does not require any files from it. You can safely uninstall the Backer Build at any time without affecting your full game installation. Eventually, we will remove all Backer Builds from user libraries.
  • Purchases made directly via the Epic Games Store are added to your account automatically and do not require a key.
