Xenonauts Coming To Mac
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Having recently reached and exceeded its Kickstarter funding goal for Xenonauts, Goldhawk Interactive has announced that a Mac version of the strategy title will be released. Described as a spirtual successor to the X-Com series, the game will challenge players to fend off alien invasion. To succeed they must build bases, recruit soldiers, research new technology, and face off against alien invaders in the sky and on the ground.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games. We are aiming to take the original mechanics and update them for the modern age, making them easier to use and more in-depth without changing the fundamentals. All the classic features are present and accounted for – things like turn-based combat, destructible environments, soldier permadeath and large squad sizes (you’ll need them)!

Strategic Map: Take command of Earth's defense on the strategic map, building and managing bases across the globe. Deploy your interceptor aircraft to track and engage the alien craft as they appear, and research captured alien artifacts to unlock new battlefield technology and reveal the secrets of the alien menace!

Aerial Combat Battle alien craft in fast paced pausable real-time air combat, with squadrons of up to three combatants on each side. With numerous different interceptors and over a dozen alien UFO types to battle, the air combat is a major addition to the old X-Com formula!

Ground Combat: Control Xenonaut strike teams on ground missions in old-school turn-based combat! Arm your soldiers with a variety of weapons and tackle numerous types of aliens on the battlefield, each with unique abilities and posing a different challenge. Your troops are persistent and level up with time, assuming they live that long - the aliens are dangerous enemies and casualties are frequent! Build new weapons and equipment to use on the battlefield!
