The Phoenix Point: Kaos Engines DLC has been revealed, bringing a new vehicle and four new missions to this XCOM spiritual successor in early March 2022.
Phoenix Point is a game that serves as a spiritual successor to the XCOM strategy games, putting players in the middle of a war against an encroaching alien threat. The game had more than its fair share of launch troubles; it was delayed and delayed again, and the Xbox Game Pass version ended up coming out later than expected.
Still, Phoenix Point has launched and ended up being a fairly decent game done in the style of XCOM. It's released a few premium DLCs and free DLCs in the time since its launch; now, Snapshot Games has announced that another new batch of post-launch content is on the way.
The Phoenix Point: Kaos Engines DLC aims to provide players with a new vehicle, new missions, and new upgrades for existing vehicles. Players will also be able to equip their troops with new "Kaos Tech" guns that are about as reliable as anything made by an Ork in Warhammer 40K.
Here's what you can expect in the Phoenix Point: Kaos Engines DLC according to today's announcement (via Reddit):
- New Vehicle: Test drive the Kaos Buggy, a makeshift vehicle that sports two different weapons alongside its innate ability to hit the gas when things get too hairy!
- New Missions: Engage in four new missions from the Kaos Syndicate or use their access to scavenged goods to purchase unique weapons and vehicular technology to use in the main campaign.
- New Vehicle Customizations: Upgrade any vehicle with new engines, hull modules, or weaponry, mix and match their components and paint them how you want them to appear.
- New Weapons: Wield five new Kaos Tech guns which offer more power for your soldiers, but may devastatingly malfunction at a critical time!
It certainly sounds like a nice batch of content. Best of all, you won't have to wait too long to play it -- this new Phoenix Point DLC is slated to arrive in a little over a month.
When is the Phoenix Point: Kaos Engines DLC Release Date?
The Phoenix Point: Kaos Engines DLC release date is March 1, 2022. This DLC will be simultaneously launching on all platforms.
