Are you curious about Phoenix Point? Well, the latest title from XCOM’s original creator, Julian Gollop, will be available to play during the PC Gamer Weekender (opens in new tab) – and the man himself will be on hand as a guest speaker on the Saturday of the event. Grab your tickets now and use the discount code chr1stm4s for 20% off until midnight on January 5.
More than just a return to the genre Gollop made his name in, Phoenix Point is a culmination of the veteran developer and his team at Snapshot Games’ experience over the past 30-plus years. Though at the same time it is a turn-based tactics game in which you fight aliens, so is also a return to what Gollop made his name in.
Three factions, each with its own strengths and weaknesses, elements of 4X strategy, mutated abominations to battle – Phoenix Point has had everyone who’s seen it champing at the bit since it first hit crowdfunding site Fig in 2016, eventually raising around $750,000. With its appearance at the PC Gamer Weekender, you’ll finally be able to find out just why we’re all so excited.
