Xenonauts V1.07HF Released!

8 juillet 2014

This is a very small update to the game, fixing three bugs. It's unlikely to break any of your mods:

- Using the Fury in combat no longer occasionally permanently grounds one of your other interceptors
- Main Menu background artwork should now appear on all computers
- Mac / Linux bugs should now be able to Autoresolve combat without it crashing

We'll be releasing another (larger) update soon to fix the crash to do with units randomly flying outside the map, and a fix that should improve turn times / low framerates on some systems.

This involves some changes to our tilesets so we're going to test it extensively on the Experimental branch first though, else we run the risk of terrain turning invisible.

We will also be making some further changes to the Mac builds to make the install process a bit more straightforward for everyone, and to deal with the problem of blurred text that some users are experiencing.

Xenonauts V1.07 Released!

30 juin 2014

Another update for Xenonauts has been released. Again, this is largely a stability update that will not break save games, but it does chance a few game files. If you have any major mods installed (map packs will work fine) then you may need to re-apply them after the update.

KEY CHANGES:

  • Month-end funding screen now appears before the Game Over screen if you lose the game.
  • Fixed the issue with upper levels of building not being visible if you have a soldier behind them.
  • Soldier equipment should stop "disappearing" on the Geoscape.
  • Killing a Zombie with a tank no longer spawns two Reapers, the second of which is invulnerable.
  • TU Reserve slider now works properly when you change weapons.
  • AI is now a bit less passive inside UFOs.
  • Extras launcher links now work correctly.

If you want to read the full changelog, you can do so here.


In other related news, the Mac / Linux builds are also finally getting somewhere. We've just enabled them for public download on Steam, but be aware that they are not yet fully functional.

LINUX: If you are playing on Linux, you must have WINE installed to be able to play the game. If it is installed then you should be able to download and play the game with no problem.

MAC: We're not able to launch this through Steam, but we can now distribute the files through Steam. Once they have downloaded, go into the download directory and open Xenonauts.zip - the game is within.

Both the Mac / Linux builds still have some issues in them that we're working on fixing. The visual glitches from the Industrial tileset on V1.06 have been fixed, though - they were making the game unplayable for many.

Articles

“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

À propos du jeu

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!

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.

J'attendais le jeu avec impatience, étant fan des Xcom. Mais après quelques heures de jeu, je reste sur une impression mitigée :

- les graphismes sont d'un ennui total, et manquent cruellement d'animation et de détails. Le X-Com de Firaxis donne une impression de vie et d'activité qui manquent totalement ici.
- le système de combat en tour par tour ne donne pas la possibilité de ramper, de regarder au coin d'un mur ou d'escalader certains obstables simples (fenêtres, buissons...) ce qui rend le gameplay tactique très limité.
- les cartes sont grandes, ce qui est agréable, mais l'on passe parfois 10 minutes à chercher un alien caché dans un placard...
- l'interface de gestion de base manque d'informations essentielles : dans combien de temps mes savants arrivent ils ? Les soldats ? quel est l'impact des événements qui apparaissent sur la carte ?
- les combats aériens sont bien fichus et apportent vraiment une nouvelle activité par rapport aux autres Xcom.
- Je n'ai pas encore vu d'événement "exotique" qui apporte un peu de variété aux missions : pas de course contre la montre, pas de missions d'exfiltrations comme le propose le récent Xcom.

Au final, le jeu ravira les nostalgiques et les amateurs de combat moderne en tour par tour (cf Jagged Alliance), mais risque d'ennuyer rapidement le grand public par son côté austère et ses graphismes désuets.

On retrouve le gameplay et les sensations des anciens xcom, avec de meilleurs graphismes, plus de fluidité et une interface plus intuitive. Que demander de plus?! Parfait pour les nostalgiques (comme moi!) et agréable pour les néophytes. A découvrir absolument!!
Attention, le jeu n'est pas en français, mais je pense que ça ne devrait pas tarder..

If you're looking for a game that captured the feeling of the original X-Com then look no further.

With stellar 3d to 2d rendered sprites, an art style and design the is reminiscent of an older generation of games though I think it would be going too far to call it "retro". Its both pleasing to the eye and has excellent clarity, all the information you need at the tip of your eyeballs and fingers to make the best strategic and tacticle decisions to defeat the disgusting xeno threat.

The gameplay is heavily inspired by the bygone days of the past, with enough updates, improvements and modernizations that streamline the drudgery of the past (like the micromanagement intense menu screens of the original X-Com that are themselves evoke thoughts of Dwarf Fortress un-modded) into a lighter area by trimming back the intensity of the learning curve (such as buying ammo, etc) leaving the player with the same amount of depth and variety without leaving newer players in quicksand googling guides.

If you're looking for a game where no one dies, aliens are made of paper and losing is impossible - look elsewhere. Your best men can be cut down like wheat by the advanced alien troops, who can at times seem to be made out of 40ft thick brick walls with angry faces painted on them.

The risk of having your best men enhances the gameplay so much more than I would have thought, I truly cared about each soldier and shook my fist at the alien menace when my important men were gunned down mere feet from the landing craft.

Theres a lot to this game, and if you're still on the fence there are plenty of videos on Youtube of people playing it - go look there and you'll find some great gameplay videos for the most part!

Just be wary, some of the videos are old and may be on outdated builds that have bugs which no longer exist in this release and if I do have anything negative to say about this game its that it isn't a fully polished release and bugs do crop up from time to time, the majority of which aren't gamebreaking but once in a while I've seen a bug cripple someones game despite myself not having seen one.
