Phoenix Point is a turn-based tactics and world-based strategy sci-fi game by the original X-COM game designer.

Phoenix Point, which has been in development for over a year, is a turn-based tactics and world-based strategy Sci-Fi game from the minds of Julian Gollop, veteran designer of the original X-COM games, and David Kaye, the founder of Gaming Insiders. Phoenix Point draws inspiration from a deep pool of talented developers from companies such as Ubisoft Sofia and Crytek Black Sea, and games such as XCOM 2 and X-COM Apocalypse.  

The spread of alien Pandoravirus was an unimaginable extinction event, nearly wiping out all human life. The fortunate majority were quickly killed off by the virus, but some were mutated by the aggressive virus, which attacks human DNA sequences and imbeds its own transformative DNA, thereby mutating humans into horrifically disfigured alien species with the ability to clone.  Those who somehow survived gather in isolated havens spread throughout the world, with several of the largest and most powerful factions of radically contrasting ideologies controlling most of the world’s resources.

You play as part of the Phoenix Project, a worldwide organization set in place before the Pandoravirus, and designed to activate in times of world peril. You and your team must find out what has happened to the other Phoenix Project sleeper cells as you race to bring humanity back from the brink of extinction. Along the way, you will encounter constant threats from an ever-increasing variety of alien mutants (procedural generation system) armed with varying6 tactical abilities and intense boss battles with massive monsters and alien land walkers. Aliens are not your only concern as you will come face to face with unpredictable interactions with human factions with their ideologies and rife with internal conflicts including kidnappings, assassinations, sabotage, military coups, and base defense missions.

Snapshot Games, in partnership with Saber Minsk, announces that DLC 5: “Kaos Engines,” its upcoming downloadable content for the strategy game, Phoenix Point, will be released on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, and Stadia on March 1, 2022.

Kaos Engines introduces the unique Kaos Syndicate, which offers new weaponry, vehicular upgrades, and missions for your Phoenix Point campaign. Take on the mutant threat with the new Kaos Buggy, a powerful, customizable vehicle, or wield new Kaos Tech guns that offer incredible power (for a price!).

Customize your rides with new engines, hulls, and armaments… or just give ‘em a shiny new paint job.
