About Phoenix Point:

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. You will face an alien threat that mutates and evolves new forms in response to your tactics. The strategic level of the game is deep and complex: you will have to manage your relationships with other human factions as you take on a wide variety of missions including kidnaps, rescues, assassinations, sabotage, haven assaults and base defence.

The game is in development for Windows PC, Mac and Linux, and scheduled for release in 2018. The game originally debuted on the Fig crowdfunding platform, and hit its initial goal within a week.
