Sci-fi Strategy Phoenix Point is Coming to PC and Xbox in September

Plan operations, research new technologies and build alliances in Phoenix Point.

Snapshot Games, the team behind the popular RTS game X-COM, announced yesterday as part of Microsoft’s Inside Xbox presentation that its upcoming sci-fi strategy game Phoenix Point is expected to launch on September 3rd, 2019.

The new cinematic trailer titled “Next Life” sets the stage for the changing face of war in Phoenix Point. The game’s enemies, led by the Alien Queen, can transform and evolve based on the players choices. As Earth’s last defenders, players will be forced to mutate their own troops to try and gain an advantage.


Phoenix Point will allow players to fully customise their squads and decide how they’d like to strategise. It will include procedurally-generated maps and branching storylines, making it so that no two playthroughs will ever be the same.

The game is set to launch on September 3rd, 2019 on the Microsoft Store and with Xbox Game Pass for console and PC, as well as the Epic Games Store for PC and Mac.

Check out the new trailer below.
