I’m a huge Xcom fan. Even 4 years after it’s release I still play it religiously. The original creator decided to start a new franchise in the vein of his previous work. Phoenix Point looks like Xcom on steroids! Even with all the Epic Games controversy, I’m still going to guy it the first week in September.


In 2022, the Pandoravirus was first discovered in the arctic permafrost by excited scientists. By 2047, it had overrun the Earth. Now, humanity is nearly wiped out, and mutated, alien creatures dominate every corner of the globe. The Phoenix Project is a worldwide organization, designed to be activated when humanity is in crisis. Now, the world’s best scientists, engineers, and soldiers look to you to lead mankind back from the brink.
