Today marks the last day of this current batch of Xbox Game Pass titles (it's been a busy week to say the least!), and what better way to end it than with Phoenix Point arriving on Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
The turn-based tactical shooter plays out in a similar vein to games such as X-COM, requiring you to smartly plot out every advancement on the battlefield. You'll battle a looming alien threat on earth as a member of a secret organisation aptly named Phoenix Project. As you work through the campaign, you'll align yourself with various factions and expand your arsenal. There are even multiple endings begging to be discovered through future replays.
Phoenix Point puts players in the midst of a desperate fight to take back the Earth from a mutating, alien menace. Featuring turn-based tactical combat on procedurally generated maps, and resource management on a global scale, Phoenix Point offers endless replayability and a brutal challenge.
The game received a Metacritic rating of 74 on Steam when it launched back in 2019, and the user rating currently sits at Mostly Positive. It seems fans of the genre may be in for a good time with Phoenix Point on Xbox Game Pass.
If that wasn't enough, yesterday saw a huge drop of new Game Pass additions, with titles such as Marvel's Avengers and Scarlet Nexus joining the service. This weekend is going to be a busy one for Xbox fans!
