The aiming system seems pretty cool to me. I guess it could be annoying to feel like you have to do it every time, but even if you do, it's not like you have to consider that carefully every single time.

you don't do it every single time - at least not in the super early builds (i haven't played one since like, BB1). iirc it's like an aimed shot option vs snap shot vs auto fire.

I briefly played the current build and didn't use it. But against boss aliens it might very well be the difference between a tpk and a win.

It's a cool system, but iirc they've changed the interface for it multiple times, which points towards it being something that's hard to get right.

Maybe they'll have it nailed down by the time it gets released on Steam  :P

I am skeptical about the mutations being much different from XCOM2's dark events

PC Gamer has an article up with a decent overview of information. Including the fact that the game will come out on the Epic Store December 3rd.

Since I was a backer and have the epic store on my computer anyway, I'll be giving it a go. Hopefully it's fun!

Also, I got a coupon for $10 off the Season Pass if anyone wants it. I'm getting the Season Pass for free for being a backer, so I won't need it. It directs to the Phoenix Point site directly, so I assume it's good for whichever platform.

Good to know. Should be interesting even if it's not exceptional.

I'm probably not getting it as long as it's only on Epic so I'll be very interested in hearing what you have to say when it releases

Looks like it is also coming out on the Microsoft store according to that article. Steam is probably a year out, but I haven't seen any exact details on that so it may have been changed.

Is the Microsoft store just an outlet or another platform like Steam or Epic?

I honestly have no idea. Never looked into it.

Quick check seems to point to just being an outlet, which is nice. That would mean I could the Outer Fallouts too, which is nice.

The Microsoft Store is a platform in that it integrates with Windows to install Windows programs. However, ownership would by definition be tied to your Windows user ID. So it's like Steam in the sense that you're not buying a transferable copy of the stuff on the store, you're paying for a license to install it on devices which have the same Windows user ID.
