Snapshot Games has released a final story trailer for Phoenix Point showcasing the origin of its alien invasion.
Via unique artistic comic book-esque imagery, the trailer (embedded below) details how Earth was invaded and ravaged by aliens, forcing humanity into hiding.
Players will take control of a taskforce and manage relationships with three distinct and oppositional human factions while fighting back against the alien horde. However, each faction has its own conflicting methods and aims for humanity’s future.
Developed with studio head Julian Gollop from the original X-COM, Phoenix Point is intended to be a spiritual successor to the classic turn-based strategy series; staying true to the roots of the genre.
Pheonix Point will release on the Epic Games Store on December 3, with PlayStation 4 and Xbox One ports set to be released in 2020.
