Phoenix Point will launch for Xbox One, PC, and Mac on September 3, developer Snapshot Games announced.
Here is a brief overview of the game, via Snapshot Games:
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.
Phoenix Point is a new strategy game from the creator of X-COM.

“Next Life” sets the stage for the changing face of war in Phoenix Point. Led by a massive Alien Queen, the game’s enemies transform and evolve according to the choices players make over time. Given the power to mutate their own troops to gain an advantage, Earth’s last desperate defenders will have to decide how much humanity they’re willing to sacrifice to save mankind from this ever-changing extraterrestrial threat.
