Xenonauts 2 starts its crowdfunding drive with a demo

Kickstarter is always a risk, but so is X-Com. Even a 99% shot has a chance to miss, but you go for it anyway, and I'd say that Xenonauts 2 is in with a pretty dang good chance of being a solid squad tactics game. The fact that it's halfway to its £50,000 funding goal within two hours of appearing on Kickstarter suggests that their…

Xenonauts 2’s free early version updated

I think Adam has been at the air conditioning again, because there’s a lot of XCOM in the air today. First came news of lookalike Shock Tactics and now we’re talking Xenonauts 2 [official site]. The sequel to the first strategy homage, inspired by Ye Olde X-COM With A Hyphen, has been dropping free public builds of the game as they work. This is their…

XC’mon: Xenonauts 2 releasing free dev builds

When X-COM cast off its hyphen and complexity to become XCOM, Xenonauts was handily here with old-school alien-busting. Now you can see how its sequel is shaping up, as developers Goldhawk Interactive are releasing development builds of Xenonauts 2 [official site] for free. You can play one single mission right now, then Goldhawk plan to expand this pre-alpha demo fortnightly. They'll start charging money once…

Here at RPS, our preparations come in the form of this enormous preview feature,…

X Dash COMING: Xenonauts 2 Confirmed, Going 3D

XCOM 2 is out this week and I'm pretty flipping excited. But what of people whose hearts yearn for X-COM, the bedashed original series Firaxis rebooted and dedashed? Good news: Xenonauts 2 [official site] is definitely happening. Bad news: it'll arrive in 2017 at the earliest. Goldhawk Interactive's Xenonauts, which came out in 2014 after years in early access, is essentially a tweaked unofficial remake…

Xenonauts 2 Is “More Likely Than Not”

XCOM 2 [official site] is a hugely exciting prospect (so much so that I'm genuinely grumpy about the delay), but XCOM and X-COM are so very different things by now that it's unlikely to slake anyone's thirst for a true-blue, Gollopy experience.
