Phantom Brigade

The tactical RPG Phantom Brigade has been in early access for a long time, but its full release is finally upon us. 

The game entered early access on the Epic Games Store quite a while ago with a final release scheduled for 2021. While it didn't quite make it in time for that, it is arriving to the finishing line soon. The full release for PC will be on February 28, and it'll also make the jump to Steam alongside its original spot on the EGS. 

The upcoming 1.0 version seems really promising, bringing hybrid gameplay between real-time and turn-based tactical RPG topped by an interesting story that will see players retake their homeland against a cruel invader while in command of a rogue squad of mecha pilots. The Valkyria Chronicles vibes are strong with this one, and I'm all for it.

Like the best mecha games, you can scavenge parts and enjoy plenty of customization for your robots, including weapons, gear, and even cosmetic elements. Destructible environments and a highly mod-friendly approach complete a very promising picture.

The announcement of the release date was made with a brief trailer providing a glimpse of gameplay, which you can enjoy below.

If you're unfamiliar with Phantom Brigade, you can read an official description below.

  • Cinematic spin on the turn-based genre – Predict enemy movements, orchestrate precisely timed countermeasures, and hit “execute” to watch the physics-based action unfold in real time.
  • An exquisite arsenal – Railguns, beam weapons, missiles, energy swords, and more! Rain destruction down upon your homeland’s invaders with weaponry salvaged from each enemy mech you defeat.
  • Strategy – Make high-level tactical decisions on the world map, manage your mobile base, and decide how to apply your limited resources.
  • Tactical combat – Take command of your squad in varied missions ranging from sabotage of enemy equipment and convoy ambushes to liberation battles and challenging outpost onslaughts.
  • Customization – Featuring a rich customization system, Phantom Brigade enables you to fine-tune the performance of your mechs, install a wide selection of equipment, and access a wealth of cosmetic options. Prepare your squad for any challenge - in style.
  • Highly moddable – Phantom Brigade has been designed from the ground up to be highly player moddable. Mix things up by playing the game with a community mod enabled, or try your hand at creating your own modded masterpiece!
  • Destructible environments – It's not a proper game about giant mechs without destructible buildings! Phantom Brigade allows every square meter of each battle map to be destroyed. Shatter your enemy’s cover and collapse buildings on top of them!
