Phoenix Point Now Available on Epic Games Store

Phoenix Point looks like exactly what it is – an all-new game created by someone intensely familiar with the genre, free of the baggage of past games and with the freedom to try something new.
Developed by Snapshot Games with studio co-founder Julian Gollop – creator of the X-COM series – at the helm, Phoenix Point looks like a fresh new take on the turn-based strategy genre, with branching storylines to keep the narrative fans happy, while procedurally-generated maps and mutating enemies will ensure there’s always a new encounter to take on.
The game is available now for PC and Mac on the Epic Games Store.
Here’s the press release:


PHOENIX POINT, THE NEW STRATEGY GAME FROM THE CREATOR OF X-COM, LAUNCHES TODAY ON THE EPIC GAMES STORE

Battle an enemy that adapts to your choices for the future of Earth in this hugely replayable turn-based tactical experience

LOS ANGELES — Dec. 3, 2019 — Snapshot Games has officially released Phoenix Point, the new turn-based sci-fi strategy game from Julian Gollop, the creator of X-COM. The standard edition of Phoenix Point is available today for $39.99 on Windows PC and Mac via the Epic Games Store.
Players can also pick up the game’s $59.99 Deluxe Edition, which includes a variety of digital and in-game bonuses, and the $79.99 Ultra Edition, featuring all of the Deluxe Edition content plus the Phoenix Point Season Pass. The Season Pass includes at least five upcoming planned DLCs.
Phoenix Point delivers a new breed of turn-based strategy and combat. Manage your forces on a global scale: plan ops, research new technologies and build alliances to unite the planet — or crush your rivals. Then customize your squad and deploy into battlefields around the world with dynamic objectives and destructible environments. Procedurally generated maps, branching storylines with multiple endings, and enemies that mutate to counter your tactics create tons of challenges and surprises, ensuring no two playthroughs are ever the same.
Snapshot Games’ ambitious post-launch roadmap will continue to add new content and features to Phoenix Point beyond release. The first major DLC — “Blood and Titanium” — is expected to arrive early next year. Everyone who backed Phoenix Point (including all Fig backers) prior to March 12, 2019, will receive the Phoenix Point Season Pass for free!
Phoenix Point is expected to launch on consoles in 2020. For the latest updates, visit https://phoenixpoint.info, and follow Phoenix Point on FacebookTwitterYouTubeDiscord and the official Phoenix Point forums.

Phoenix Point Hits Epic Games Store December 3rd

When creators move on from a project they’ve long been associated with there’s obviously some sadness at what’s left behind, but there must also be an enormous amount of excitement at being able to birth something new that doesn’t carry the tremendous weight of customer expectation.
When you work on something like XCOM, for example, as great as it is there are always expectations from fans – not only that it will improve but also that it won’t change TOO much. It’s a tough line to walk, but imagine you can escape that and start your own IP with all that you’ve learned, able to make something new without the baggage of history behind it?
That’s what Phoenix Point looks to be for Snapshot Games, an all-new strategy game from the creator of XCOM. Something that can do new things without leaving old fans in the lurch, and something that brings with it the optimism that a new IP holds.
Phoenix Point hits Epic Games Store for Windows and Mac on December 3rd, and they’re leaning in on pulling from that XCOM crowd with a series of videos showcasing the new game for that fanbase.

Here’s the press release:
