As we have seen it already, I assume it will come near the end of the August.
Wait… did I miss an update email again or forum post? An article? Or did you mean we as in “the council?”
Yes, council has privilege to see upcoming changes.
Ok, that makes sense. I thought there was a public announcement/teaser with screenshots and such I missed. Ok. So I didn’t miss anything yet. Good.
We do not have an exact date yet, but it will be this month. We will most likely announce the release date next week. There will also be a trailer. I can share a bit of info about what can you expect:
Legacy of the Ancients - delves into the secrets of the Antediluvian Civilization that predated modern human civilization on Earth. Explore ancient ruins for knowledge of this precursor civilization, and use its secrets to research a whole new line of Phoenix Point weapons and technologies. But beware: the ancients left powerful guardians to watch over their secrets, and know that you won’t be the only one seeking to control this ancient knowledge; new rivals will rise up as the legacy of the ancients is revealed to humanity.
- new story missions and cinematics
- new mission types
- new enemies and new evolutions for the old ones
- new environments
- new points of interest on the globe with a unique way of exploration
- new resources with a unique way of obtaining
- new researches
- 6 new powerful weapons to manufacture
So like in the Tomb of the Phoenix short story yeah? Damn I’m really happy I finally get to see that. Hope you fellas got better at presenting missions cause the theme of this one is very interesting.
The Legacy of the Ancients DLC is supposed to be bigger and make more changes than Blood and Titanium $10 vs $5. It’s a little concerning there aren’t more firm details about it yet considering it should be released in 2 weeks. Hopefully this is because they are hard at work and haven’t put any resources into marketing.
Don’t overestimate it. It is still strategy game with some new elements. Not completely new experience in the same universe. It won’t be any scounting of mystery sites or anything like that.
you have details 2 posts above Should they show screens or movies about it? Wouldn’t it be a spoiler then?
Was just about to comment he should look up. Valygar’s post contains some pretty meaty details and more will come hopefully next week:
Yes obviously. Would you buy a game where they haven’t done that?
So far it is.
Latest patch has fixed quite a lot of issues, and seems not too many fixes and small features are planned currently (see feedback - planned).
In my book I read it as “finally playable and ready for DLCs” and congrats to @JulianG and team on finally making the game ready.
Also, its nice it will be “good” for December Steam release (which in my book is real release)
Sincere congrats on expanding this “ancient civ” line to more then just a story Seems like biggest DLC so far!
I’m excited to jump back in with the next DLC!!! Been playing some Xcom 2 but I really miss PP.
ALL OF WHAT YOU WROTE! Caps because I am excited. Congrats to Snapshot. I am so excited.
Yeah I just finished (read: barely lost) my latest campaign so going to hold off starting another until this drops.
I can’t get or be excited about anything if there is no date and really no pertinent information about it. How can you release a DLC that you are using to generate revenue when you don’t market or tell anyone when it is coming out? “It should be sometime this month” is vague and obtuse and leaning on the “I am really not sure when this is coming out but lets throw something to the masses to keep them off my back” button.
and what if they start marketing after release?
It’s an indie company, they are not going to have a big marketing push. If so, surely it is better to bring attention to the DLC when it is released/about to be released, rather then some time before.
Stop being a hype addict. It’s not good for ya.
There are plans for a trailer prior to the release date.
