Phoenix Point now an Epic Store Exkloosive

Phoenix Point, everyone's most eagerly anticipated nu-xcom-but-not-really-actually-nu-xcom spiritual successor of X-COM by none other than Julian Gollop, the creator of the X-COM series, has been going through some interesting developments ever since it was successfully crowdfounded at Fig.

Fans and backers alike will no doubt rejoice about the fact that Phoenix Point has finally found a welcoming home and financial stability by signing up for a 1-year-long deal of exclusive presence on the brand-new Epic Store. "Exclusive" is just another word for "exceptional" and Snapshot Games founder Julian Gollop is as positive about this auspicious endeavour as anyone would be. From the official announcement:

I have some major news to share: we have signed a deal with Epic Games to bring Phoenix Point exclusively to the Epic Games Store for its first year of release on PC and Mac.

This deal is a real game changer for our studio, because, thanks to Epic’s support, it is certain that we will be able to update and expand Phoenix Point for years to come.

We want to share our success with all the backers who have helped us get here, so we have a special benefit to announce: if you backed or pre-ordered Phoenix Point at any time since our crowdfunding campaign until today, you will receive a year of free DLC.​

A year of free DLC? Sounds exciting! But what does it mean for fans who really, really wanted to get the game DLC and DRM free on a platform such as GOG? No worries, because Snapshot's got you covered. From the official FAQ:

I really wanted the game on Steam or GOG.com. What can I do?

Whichever delivery option you had originally opted for, we’re still positive that you will have a fantastic experience with Phoenix Point on the Epic Games Launcher.

All backers up to this point will also STILL receive a Steam or GOG key after the 1 year exclusivity period. The Steam/GOG key will also receive the same 1 year of free DLC which came with the Epic key.

If we really can’t tempt you over, we understand. You can cancel your pre-order (this includes Fig.co crowdfunding backers) at any time in the next 28 days for a full refund.​

Good guys provide their fans with multiple options and Snapshot Games are no exception. And in case you're worrying that any prospective refund made by you would harm the game's development, worry no more, because the community manager confirmed on the official Discord channel for the game that Phoenix Point can, and will, manage just fine without you.

Keep in mind that we knew there would be backlash. We knew there would be refunds. If we had to refund 100% of currently pre-orders, we'd still be in the black. We didn't make the decision lightly.​

Truly gets the noggin joggin'!
