Players will control the Xenonauts during the cold war, an independent organization formed to investigate extraterrestrial activity, funded by both NATO and the USSR.


Xenonauts will include and expand on a lot of key features from the X-Com games, including:

The geoscape.
  • The Geoscape
  • Strategic Air Combat System
  • Base & Structure Construction
  • Research & Manufacturing
  • Soldier Experience
  • Destructible Terrain
  • Squad- and Turn-based Combat
  • Random Battlefield Generation
