The Phantom Brigade release date has finally been announced by Brace Yourself Games. This turn-based mech battle game will be making its way to PC via the Epic Games Store next month!
Phantom Brigade hybridizes turn-based tactical RPGs and real-time strategy. Players must first plan out their moves on the battlefield, commanding the last survival squad of mechs that are defending your home. Once the plan is in motion, you'll get to watch the action unfold as you wage a guerrilla war against the enemy.
As time goes on, players will work to capture enemy facilities and rebuild their military strength. In a world with high-powered battle mechs, every shot will count — especially when one of those shots is a high-powered particle beam as wide as a road.

When is the Phantom Brigade Release Date?
The Phantom Brigade release date is November 16, 2020, for PC via the Epic Games Store according to the game's official website. Phantom Brigade will be exclusive to the Epic Games Store for one year, after which the Early Access period will conclude and it will launch on Steam.
"Launching this way with two stages gives us the opportunity to spend more time perfecting the details of the game, and making sure that we can do the full launch with the strongest product possible," read the news post announcing the Phantom Brigade release date. "We really love how Phantom Brigade is looking right now, and we can’t wait to show you more in the coming months."
If you're curious about a potential console release, it has not been explicitly mentioned. That said, a console launch for this upcoming mech battle game has not been ruled out, either.
For now, you can add Phantom Brigade to your wishlist on the Epic Games Store. If that's not your preferred PC platform, you can also add Phantom Brigade to your wishlist on Steam for its anticipated November 2021 launch on that storefront.
