UFO: Afterlight is a mixture of squad based tactical action and global strategy with the gamer controlling the actions of elite ground troops, and the running and construction of an intricate network of interlinking bases while collecting resources.

  • Clicking on empty space when all vehicles were at the home base caused the game to lock up
  • Completing a capture mission sometimes yielded a different interrogation research than expected or none at all
  • Capture missions for Reticulan factions didn't appear again if you failed to complete those missions or if they timed out
  • Matriarch Interrogation research item didn't show up in the research list until you researched Matriarch Autopsy first
  • Beastman Anatomy training for Reticulans displayed a wrong icon
  • Fixed a peacetime trade contract with Reticulans where they should have offered crystals for items, but only requested items without offering the crystals


  • DVD check removed (no need to insert the DVD every time you play the game)
