Snapshot Games, founded by X-COM creator Julian Gollop, announced the release of the latest update for its Phoenix Point tactical strategy.

Hastur's upgrade added support to the "Master Steam" and released all versions of the soldiers' appearance to all users, regardless of when and how they acquired the Phoenix Point. These include Skins, which were previously only available on PlayStation and Xbox, and two brand new ones, the Aztec priest and pandoran technique.

With regard to the Compendium Edition, available on PC, Steam now has a free demo version.

The developers also announced that Phoenix Point attracted a million players. It appears that console versions and the addition to the Xbox Game Pass catalogue helped to expand the audience. The creators hope that, despite the completion of official support, their project will continue to grow through user modifications.

===Phoenix Point===Phoenix Point was funded at the Fig site in 2017 by Gollop in an attempt to link the ideas of X-COM: UFO Defense 1994 and X-COM: Apocalypse 1997 with the elements of XCOM: Enemy Unkown and XCOM: Enemy Within of Firaxis Games.

The strategy was scheduled to be released as early as 2018, but the release was postponed several times. It was released in December 2019 on PC. The game reached Steam a year later in the form of Year One Edition, which included all the DLCs released at that time. In January 2021, Google Stadia joined the list of platforms, and in October, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Players rate Phoenix Point in mixed terms. In Steam, the percentage of positive reviews is 72%. Buyers talk about serious balance problems, one-size gameplay, virtually missing plot and outdated graphics, and complain that for two and a half years the developers have focused on adding content and not enough attention to correcting deficiencies. However, many note interesting experiments with the X-COM formula and call the project one of the best representatives of the genre.
