Snapshot Games has launched “Festering Skies,” the third major DLC for Phoenix Point: Year One Edition, the hit turn-based strategy game from X-COM creator Julian Gollop. This latest update introduces new story missions, cinematics, mission types, a new air-combat minigame, and much more, available now for $9.99 on Steam, the Epic Games Store, and the Microsoft Store.

In “Festering Skies,” the Phoenix Project must rise to the challenge against its biggest foe yet and face off against flying Pandorans. This exciting content update features:

  • All-new tactical enemies on the ground and, of course, the Behemoth, a monstrous threat that must be stopped before it crushes humanity.
  • All-new mission type: “Infested Havens,” tasking players with rescuing factions from new Pandoran threats.
  • Interception: an air-combat minigame in which players can research weapons and modules to counter assaults in the skies.
  • A new original storyline and cinematic cutscenes.

“Festering Skies” also rolls out with the new “Behemoth” content update, free for all players, including a range of quality-of-life and balance changes, as well as code for a new cosmetic skin Snapshot will be providing on its social channels.

Snapshot has also released the Phoenix Point Expansion Pass, a discounted bundle featuring “Festering Skies” and two future DLC campaigns, available now for $14.99. Experience even more gameplay modes, enemies, weapons, and tons of additional content for Phoenix Point: Year One Edition. Check out the game’s 2021 roadmap for a closer look at what’s coming up.

Phoenix Point delivers a new breed of turn-based strategy and action against alien invaders. Build global alliances, manage your base, and command your forces in intense battles with dynamic objectives and destructible environments. Procedurally generated maps, branching storylines with multiple endings, and enemies that mutate to counter your tactics ensure no two playthroughs are ever the same. That experience has grown even further post-launch with new DLC featuring bonus story missions, cinematics, maps, weapons, factions and more.
