“The result is a deeply engaging, indie version of an alien invasion that stands toe-to-toe with X-COM—the classic and the reboots.”
85 – PC Gamer

“Xenonauts is a faithful modernization of a classic. It retains the features that made X-COM such a tense and memorable game, with base invasions and a gigantic open-ended campaign of depth and freedom. If Firaxis' revamped take on the series felt a little too directed and linear for you, then Xenonauts is likely to delight.”
80 – Strategy Informer

Informace o hře

Xenonauts is a strategy game in which you control a multi-national military organisation defending a Cold War-era Earth from alien invasion, using small squads of persistent soldiers to eliminate the extraterrestrials and recover their technology in turn-based ground combat. A detailed strategic layer allows you to co-ordinate the defence of the planet, using your interceptors to shoot down UFOs and researching captured artefacts to learn about your foes and unlock new combat equipment to use on your missions.

Xenonauts is a spiritual successor to the classic X-Com strategy games from the 1990s. We aim to improve the graphics, add new content and streamline the interface whilst still retaining all of the key mechanics of the original games. Devoted fans should love this game, but we're also keen to introduce the joys of old-school grand strategy to a whole new generation of players who might not otherwise experience it!

Please note that the native Mac / Linux versions of the game are still in beta, however older WINE-wrapped "ports" are available and known to be stable whilst development of the native ports is still ongoing.

Key Features


  • Ground Combat: Xenonauts delivers tense turn-based combat across realistic, varied and fully-destructible battlefields, against almost fifty different variants of enemy. Missions range from capturing crashed UFOs or alien bases to defending cities (or even Xenonaut facilities) against alien attack. You'll experience the chill of encountering a new alien for the first time and the joys of test-firing a new weapon for the first time. Deeply asymmetric combat keeps the battles interesting - after all, you're fighting intergalactic invaders with 1970's ballistic technology!
  • Strategic Management: You will also be managing the defence of the planet, dealing with the invading alien UFOs with your customisable interceptors. You need to balance the needs of your funding nations with your own. Your funds are limited - are you going to spend them on battlefield equipment, more scientists, or expanding your coverage of the planet? Your priorities must be balanced carefully if you are to win the war.
  • Research Tree: Xenonauts has an extensive research tree with almost a hundred projects to unlock, each with its own unique description and painted artwork. It slowly reveals the intentions and origins of the invaders, while also unlocking new battlefield equipment, aircraft and vehicles for you to use as you harness alien technology and turn it against them.
  • Persistent Soldiers: Soldiers in Xenonauts are persistent from mission to mission, improving their stats and gaining ranks with combat experience - but their deaths are always only a single bad move away. You will grow to care about the brave men and women under your command as they slowly grow from green rookies into hardened veterans, but that only makes it more painful when their heroic tale is cruelly cut short by a burst of plasma fire...
  • Detailed, Emergent Simulation: Xenonauts contains no scripted missions, just broad rules setting the pace of the invasion. As such, no game plays out the same twice. If you shoot a Scout UFO down over a polar area, you get a Crash Site mission where you can capture a crashed Scout UFO in an Arctic tileset. Commence a battle at night and you'll be fighting the mission in the darkness with reduced sight range. If your base is attacked, you fight the defence in a perfect replica of your base. A lot of time has gone into weaving the two very different halves of the game together into something that feels both natural and enjoyable.

A worthy successor to the XCOM crown, albeit substantually less glitzy than 2K's reboots.

Still, an enjoyable way of killing a few hours and proof that catching a retro feel doesn't need pixel art style graphics

This game is literally unplayable on my screen, I tried every single resolution available and the text is always way too small to read, It's not just hard, it's impossible to read.

They promised better UI, but that was back in 2013, I just wasted my money on this game.

I'ts great... But Another game where the aliens NEVER miss but you will fire shot after shot after shot after shot and every time they will miss. It's just not fun to play. I'm 1 and a half hours into this. And my soldiers HAVE NOT landed more than a single, solitary, hit on the enemy. I have had to keep reloading and trying again. I think this is what people call "hard core". Yeah - I haven't even managed yet to get all my troops off the back of the helicopter. It's like that bit in Saving Private Ryan, at the beginning where they are trying to get off the life boat things, except the American's can't hit a thing and they have machine guns, and the germans have a pistol and every shot they fire kills a GI.

All of the XCom games have sort of done this and I've always thought it sucked. The worst were the games in the UFO trilogy. I imagine that this game NEEDS you to have a maxed out Stat squad to stand a chance later on in the game? So you simply CAN NOT tollerate taking a casualty? Is it another of those? Because if you have to replace someone with a Private later on and they come out like this.....

The game has been a hugely dissapointing and not-really-fun waste of an hour and a half so far.

This game is wonderful if you prefer X-COM over XCOM, but with Xenonauts 2 nearing release it's hard to recommend this game to any fans of the original. Xenonauts 2 might not fill the niche it needs to, however, so keep an eye on this one.

Xenonauts is one of the best games I have played since the original X-COM was released over 20 years ago. I love how it stayed true to the original, but it managed to streamline the tedious parts, such as ammo management.
I just wish that increasing the difficulty would improve the AI instead of improving alien stats, but that's what most of the games do anyway.
I can't wait to see the sequel.

It's XCOM if you want better graphics than the original, or don't like the newer XCOM games/dont have a good enough computer. Either way, it's fun, It's brutal, and it's addicting.

Also you can shank aliens.

In many ways an impressive game.

With many hours of extremely fun gameplay.
It's a game you should own and should have played.
I finished the game offline and Steam did not count my hours, but I spent probably 80-100 hours playing it.
The first two tries I failed than I played at easy and with a changed strategy.

It's very close to the original XCOM which IMO is a really good thing
as it is still one of the best games to ever have been made.
But the graphic of the original is dated and this game even improves
some over the original.

Because its depth, atmosphere and gameplay.
Many remakes have been tried and failed because they lacked
one thing or the other that made the original so good.

They lacked turn-based rounds, they lacked how high the soldiers
were standing as a tactical part of the game or buildings were not destructible etc.
This game have it all! The music has the exact right kind of atmosphere.
The graphics is not too cartoony as some in the first new XCOM by Firaxis, its just right.

It is not an easy game to remake, as it has a lot of depth but Goldhawk made it
very good and in some ways even improved upon the original.

Also the graphics is much cooler than on the screen-shots.

There is no such thing as a perfect game but this comes close.
What brings it down is the difficulty level of the game.

I played it to the end and when I look back they made the game
a little too hard even on easy, which will cause a lot of frustration.

The best tactics you are supposed to use to complete the game is not
explained. This means that you may end up spending a lot on new weapons
to your soldiers, but that makes it impossible to complete the game which
you will only discover after 12-20 hours later on in the game when you have
lost a country which means you will get too little money to build new bases,
and new airplanes, which means you will lose other countries.

In this way it is old-school and close to the original game, which you could easily
spend 100 hours on and still not manage to complete.

For those that want to avoid having to replay here is a winning strategy:

To be able to complete the game one
strategy is to try and as soon as possible establish three bases with up to 3 radars on
each and with mainly lots of hangars and fighter-jets.
As shooting down UFOs will mean that the countries will raise your income and you will
keep the alien invasion under control and when you attack a UFO with the maximum amount of fighter-jets.
you will almost never lose a plane.

Do not put too much into producing expensive soldier weapons at first.
Do not spend money on missile defense as those are not needed in the first 10 hours of the game.

What is not perfect.
When on missions it is almost
impossible to not get soldiers killed, which later on in the game
becomes frustrating as the soldiers after completing 20 missions
are much better than new recruits.

They aim better, can do much more during a turn and can carry much more.
This makes new soldiers frustratingly bad when you are in the middle of the game.

In order to manage this, you have to either constantly have twice the amount of soldiers
that you cycle through on missions, which is just tedious and also slows down the
leveling up of your soldiers, but could easily
also affects the game in that later on in the game
some of the weapons are very expensive and takes very
long time to produce and if you produce them for every single one of your soldiers you
have wasted money on weapons instead of base upgrades fighter-jets. etc.

One way to save that money is to reuse the same weapon for whatever
soldier that you are sending on a mission, sure it is nice to think of that as a way to save money similarly
as to how governments try to save money, but swapping the weapons before missions just to save money is not
that fun in the long run.

So what you will end up doing later in the game instead of cycling through several soldiers and swapping their weapons is kind of cheating.
You will save very often, almost after every action a soldier has taken,
and if a soldier of yours is shot down you will reload and replay.
Because the game will force you to do so in order for you to know that you
will at least stand a chance of being able to complete it.
The problem is that you can do everything right, you place your soldiers in strategic positions guarding all exits and entrances.
Letting them have time units left to react and fire at any aliens that comes around a corner.
But they still get shot at because an alien can see from a longer distance than you or your soldiers can lose
their mind and start to fire at their own squad.

So even if you do everything right you will lose soldiers in a somewhat unfair way which makes you grow tired
and you feel forced just starting to save often and replay instead.

In that way they should had made the game much easier and more forgiving on Easy.
Easy right now is what you would expect normal or hard to be.

However the game is still extremely fun and entertaining during many many hours.
And for many reasons it is one hell of a game.

One of the things that makes it so is how research works.
Unlike other games you do not know really know what
the result of researching a new technology or interrogating an alien will be.
This makes it hard to stop playing as you find that you just have to research that new
weapon or technology to find out what it is and when you have you find out it is an
awesome new weapon that will toast the aliens. Now you just need to produce that weapon.
Than you get greedy and want all your soldiers to have it so you continue playing and
along the way you discover new things to research and your intelligence will report new
things they have discovered to you.
And just when it starts to get tedious a new element is
introduced.
The AI of the aliens is also quite good and you will find some of them doing quite smart things later on in the game.
Don't put your squad members to close together or they might throw a grenade at your group!

This is honestly what I expected the X-Com remake to be, and was disappointed that I didn't get. It's a tasteful homage to the originals, with an art direction all its own. The developers have obviously put a lot of thought into making a beautiful and fun game. I like it a lot 11 hours in, and I can see myself sinking 40 more into it.

"Meh" things:
The combat is a bit simpler than I like in my TBS games. I feel like they could have worked in more complexity to movement/posture/aiming (like JA2 did), and come out with a more engaging, tactical game. However, it's still a step up from the remade X-Com, so I won't nitpick here too much.

The maps feel a bit same-y after a few battles (crashed spaceships are generally in the same location relative to your skyranger).

Don't be dissuaded, though - this is good stuff. 7/10 or so.

I heartily recommend this game once you install several mods:

1. Most important -- the Xenonauts: Community Edition (X:CE) which is an improved version of the original game, including additional bugfixes and various new features that do not fundamentally alter the intended game experience (rather, they just make it play better).

I also used:

2. Skitso's Map Pack
3. Reinforcements
4. Instant Grernades
5. Random Map Pack Artic Collection
6. Random Map Pack Desert Style
7. Khall's More Protraits
8. Khall's Tundra Tileset

The game play is faithful to the original XCOM game. Your primary concern overall is money. You must keep nearly all of the countries satisfied and contributing funds or you will lose. Tips on how to keep them satisfied:

1. Destroy alien bases immediately as they are discovered.
2. Stop terror attacks as soon as they start.
3. Stop bombing attacks as soon as you can.
4. Shoot down as many UFO's as you can.

Radar coverage of the map is key to all these. I used only three bases, leaving only South America uncovered. The loss of South America alone is not too damaging to your funds (I completed the game with almost $2 million in hand) My bases:

1. North Africa. First base, positioned (coords 4822/1707) so that three radar's coverage included all of the african continent, all of Europe including Great Britain, and extending to east into Indochina and the Soviet Union.
2. North America. Positioned (coords 1827/1358) on the North America/Central America border, with radar coverage extending from the artic icecap to cover all of Central America and all of North America with the exception of Alaska.
3. Indochina. Positioned (coords 4574/1527). Coverage of all of Indochina, central Soviet Union, and half of Australia.

Base contents.

North Africa.
1. 3 Radars
2. 4 Batteries
3. 5 Hangers (4 fighters, one troop aircraft)
4. 1 Hospital
5. 2 Research labs
6. 2 Workshops
7. 2 Living Spaces
8. 1 Storeroom

North America
1. 3 Radars
2. 5 Batteries
3. 6 Hangers (5 fighters)
4. 1 Research lab
5. 1 Living Spaces

Indochina
1. 3 Radars
2. 5 Batteries
3. 6 Hangers (5 fighters)
5. 1 Living Spaces

To build new fighters you transfer one fighter from North Africa to one of the other bases, and then build the new fighter at North Africa. 5 batteries are sufficient to prevent aliens from succeeding in attacking and destroying your bases, so there is no need for soldiers in North America or Indochina.

Major Spoilers for Air Combat
You will need to use manual combat for the air once the alien craft get dangerous because you can't afford to lose your aircraft. Fortunately there is an easy way to do this. When your fighters intercept the alien craft, always select one of the "Follow" options. After a few seconds you can click on your fighters again, and this time select engage. Your fighters will appear directly behind the enemy ship. Turn on all after burners and wait until your craft launch their missles. Immediately stop the battle and set your craft way points so the they fly behind the enemy craft. Once they are clear, click on the X to get them to exit the map.

Bombers are always escorted by two fighters. Use two fighters to lure the alien fighters to the east and west. Have your third fighter move to the tail of one of the alien fighters and shoot it down. Get the second fighter in the same way, then exit. The bomber will now be an easy kill for another of your flights.

Second flights are necessary not only because two are needed for bombers, but also because as the alien craft get bigger and stronger they can not be killed by the six missiles carried by one flight. Only three fighters can be in one flight, but fortunately each base can put mulitiple flights into the air at once. Simply click on the UFO and select intercept, and assign three planes to attack. Then click on the UFO again, and you can assign a second flight to the same UFO.

I really love & hate this game. The entire premise is fantastic. What I really hate is that aircombat is frustratingly stupid (fighters won't fire their missiles even when they have a lock sometimes). Ground combat has the oddity of even seasoned soldiers overreacting and shooting your own guys when they see an alien. These buggy bits could be argued to be realistic... but only slightly. Also everytime your soldiers are in sick bay and then come back they conveniently forget all the items they were carrying into battle before. I know you can make new roles... but it's all a huge pain in the rear.

You can't lob a friggin grenade anywhere you can't visually see... which is pretty much how grenades are supposed to be used.

The ultimate armored suit doesn't seem to be that effective (pretty sure my guy gets hurt just as much in that thing as out of it.

Berserking is stupid... your guy will decide to turn around and shoot his own people.

Also... no one warned me you could lose countries and not gain them back. Even though the death toll only states there's a few thousand killed. It makes no sense unless the aliens really did cleanse the earth in those places, which they didn't.

This has the makings of a great game. Xenonauts 2 will hopefully improve upon this because the idea is really really great in conception but not execution. Just too many frustrating things (especially the combat that leaves a 95% burst with 0 rounds impacting on target) Also the heavy machine gun should carry about 200 rounds per drum... but you only have 30 rounds per.

Faceblast was an excellent soldier, a true hero, victor of many battles. He had an amazing collection of medals, including multiple purple hearts. He never abandoned his trusty shotgun (well, maybe once when he panicked).
His only mistake during his otherwise excellent military career was throwing that grenade. Into his own feet. Killing him. And several of his comrades. Maybe explosives weren't for him?
10/10, would throw grenades again. For mankind!

Původní XCOM to není, ale dají se u toho trávit dlouhé zimní večery. Hru si ale užijete až díky modifikacím. Zcela zasádní, je nainstalovat Skitso´s Ultimate Map Pack, který přidá až 70 nových map, od indrustriálních a po pouštní lokace.

I finally completed my first Normal Ironman run in Xenonauts after many rage quits, forced restarts... and forgetting to deactive my C4 explosives only to pink mistify half my squad (way... waayyyy too many times). There were many moments that had me mumbling at my screen in frustration or outright had me getting up from the computer, going to the gym, and lifting things up then putting them down over and over again to get the angst out.

It was incredibly frustrating to have some of my wet-behind-the-ears soldiers survive a few missions and pulverize some Xeno scum, only to watch them get one shot by a well placed shot or devoured by a Reaper I didn't plan for. Cover isn't intuitive (or at least for me it wasn't) and there were multiple times I took position only to watch the alien turn, smirk at me, then plant a plasma bolt square between the eyes of one of my soldiers. Refer back to the rage and lifting portion.

Eventually, after epic (and possibly unhealthy) amounts of nerd rage and QQ'ing over cheating alien scum, how insanely difficult breaching UFOs is (Corvettes! I'm specifically hating on you!), and having to make aggrevating economic decisions... I learned from my mistakes (gasp!), had to learn to accept losses, and got better.

I actually started using squad level tactics like hugging walls, throwing down smoke grenades if I absolutely had to turn a blind corner with no indication of what could be waiting on the other side, NOT sprinting down the middle of the street with my entire squad, then getting upset that I got sniped from a random window, making liberal use of explosives even if it meant I lost some money breaching UFOs, and generally just accepting I'm supposed to be out gunned.

The game is remarkably well paced, freakishly so. Due to the ticker implementation RIGHT when you finally have outfitted your fighter jets or soldiers with the appropriate gear new bigger, badder aliens show up that almost make your hard fought gains obsolete. One step forward, two steps back is a common theme throughout the game that makes you BETTER because you have to actually think about WTF you're doing and why.

I'm a father of three, married, and I have a job that has me at work anywhere from a standard 40 hours a week to almost 60, so it took me a month to get through the game. I guess I could've used the common complaint/logic "I don't have that kind of time" or "I want something I can sit down and beat in a few days" but this was far more rewarding. Yes, there were days where after a 12 hour shift I certainly didn't come home and boot up any games, but the time invested was worth it.

I'm glad I stuck with Xenonauts despite my initial frustrations and will be putting many more hours into it either by tweaking the config file or by downloading mods. I actually tried playing XCOM: EU again and couldn't bring myself to do it.

If you've made it through the wall of text (hurray!) I guess I'd split it into three categories:

The Good:

-Excellently designed game that gives you total freedom, no ♥♥♥♥ty tutorials shall be thrust on you here.

-The pacing is genius! I don't know how long it took them, but the game ups the difficulty at the right moment. (unless you're playing bad, then you'll never catch up)

-Soldiers have no role, you determine what they do based on what equipment you give them. Have a guy with high TU (action points)? Make him your scout! Have a guy with amazing accuracy but maybe his HP is kind of low? Sniper! Found a meat shield with high HP and incredible strength, but he couldn't hit the broad side of a barn at point blank range with a fully automatic weapon? Give him a metal shield and let him be a bullet sponge! Or don't do any of those things, it's up to you.

-Aliens appropriately out tech you through out pretty much the entire game. You genuinely feel an overwhelming sense of dread as you play the game.

-You will take losses, but that doesn't mean you'll lose the game. You can have pretty substantial set backs and still come out on top. (kind of like how life is!)

-Using squad level infantry tactics ACTUALLY works and is necessary.

-Well thought out tech tree and research progression.

-You can mod and edit the crap out of the game to your liking.

-Music is well done and adds to the setting.

The Bad:

-Even on Easy this game will be too much for a lot of people. This will be viewed as an "elitist" comment, but I think that's more indicative of the gaming industry as a whole and not to Xenonaut's detriment. Nintendo games were soul crushingly difficult and only had one mode, now many games I can hand my six year old that he can beat without having to read any of the text.

-Still some glitches/bugs, namely shooting through walls. It doesn't happen too often, but it can make a huge difference to how that one map will play out.

-The game doesn't explain a lot of the mechanics adequately. This can amplify frustration or make it more rewarding as you progress, depends on your perspective.

-Mind control late game is a bit out of whack. I thought it added a great deal of intensity and dread, but it was depressing to watch two of my colonels that had managed to survive +30 missions get possessed and murder each other. I think it's a great (and necessary) part of the game, but still needs tweaking in either lower % success rate (which you can do yourself) or a turn delay the same way Wraiths can't teleport and shoot in the same turn.

The Ugly:

-Graphics. Eventually they grew on me, but it was admittedly jarring at first.

Xenonauts. It's greatest strength is that it's X-com. It's greatest weakness is that it's X-com.

If you're an older gamer, played the original X-coms, and just wanted them to get a graphics update and maybe some mods on being able to better organise your units and maybe a few updates, look no further. You've found it.

If you don't know what this "X-com" business is about, both X-com and Xenonauts are tactical and strategic games where you defend earth from an alien invasion through a specialised organisation and squad who deals with the aliens.
You'll respond to the aliens by shooting down the UFOs using regular human fighter aircraft, and then landing a squad of soldiers with just plain old human guns near them to clear out the survivors. After that, you'll begin to research better technology. Laser rifles, faster aircraft to take down the UFOs, armour that protects from the alien weaponry, and so on.

You will meet several different kinds of aliens, each with their own strengths and weaknesses, and figure out why they're invading. But most importantly, you're going to stop them. You're going to take all their technology and make it your own, and you will end up with several bases across the world to find, and destroy any intruders who push into your atmosphere.

As for the changes between this and X-com, they are mostly good. You have an airstrike option on alien crash sites so that you don't need to do everything or have them expire when you've been too busy dealing with other sites, though it will provide you with far less rewards than if you send in a squad of soldiers. There are new pieces of equipment, such as the shield. You'll no longer need to micromanage every last clip or laser battery in your arsenal and order the construction of small things like two laser batteries - Just keep track of the ones you bring into combat so you don't run out. There are now more involved air battles, along with air terror sites. And cover, along with range, now actually provides a bonus or penalty to your shots. You don't have to worry about this turning into a chest high wall simulator though, it works out well and you don't have to stay in cover. It's just a suggestion that increases your soldiers' lifespan. There are some others but they are mostly positive. One I'd say is slightly negative is that you can not land on a UFO and blast a hole in the ceiling to enter it as you could in the original X-com, though if you never played that game(And even if you did), you might not even notice that option isn't there.

Mechanics wise, it works out very similar to X-com, with an isometric view and tile based map. I've found some maps had too little vertical space sometimes but often this wasn't a big problem, the controls are pretty good, mainly just using your mouse to command your units. It's turn based, with a world map to place your bases on and do your air battles, and a base overview where you can build out your base by modular rooms.
Interestingly, I've found that the difficulty settings actually changes AI behavior, rather than the lazy way of just giving the AI more armour or damage. I'm not sure if it also gives the aliens more stats or makes it more difficult to get money for the player, but the fact difficulty settings actually improve the AI is something that many AAA games completely fail at.

In the end, it's X-com. It has most of the strengths of X-com, but it also has the flaws of X-com. You may need to restart several times if you're new and you might get discouraged. A random lucky shot could kill off your best soldier and send the nearby rocket launcher guy into a berserk panic state right into your own squad. If you're not used to it, you'll wonder just how long the campaign keeps going and it may turn into a game of 'whack-a-UFO' for you with slow or barely noticable progress. Or you may simply not have a clue what's going on until the aliens are already in a better position than you.

Even then, it's a very good game. I would say it's worth grabbing it at some point if you want to see what the fuss is about, or because you want some more of the X-com from long ago (Without looking at Interceptor or Enforcer for now)
