Phoenix Point is the new strategy game from the creator of the original X-COM series. It features turn-based tactics and world based strategy in a fight against a terrifying, alien menace. Your enemy will mutate and evolve in response to your tactics, creating a huge variety of challenges and surprises for you on the battlefield.
An unusual virus discovered in melting permafrost excites the scientific community. It has a massive genome, and only 1% of its genes match anything in existing databases.
“What the hell is going on with the other genes?” asks researcher Jean-Michel Moreau. “This opens a Pandora’s box. What kinds of discoveries are going to come from studying the contents?”
Later in the decade, the seas transform into something totally alien. Then the mutagens begin to invade the land via an airborne microbial mist.
The human population has been decimated. Survivors gather in isolated havens spread throughout the world. A few factions control most of the havens and resources, but they have radically contrasting ideologies and guard deep secrets.
The Phoenix Project is a worldwide organization designed to be activated when the world is in peril. You control one cell, gathering some of the world’s best scientists, engineers, and soldiers. After your cell is activated, you realize that you have no contact with any other cells. You need to find out what happened to them.
