Bonne nouvelle, voici une bande-annonce pour accompagner la confirmation que le second volet de Xenonauts arrivera bien prochainement cette année. Une phase Accès anticipé débutera durant le second trimestre prochain et permettra de voir si la très longue attente et les améliorations apportées par le nouveau moteur graphique seront à la hauteur des souhaits des passionnés du genre. C’est très probable comme le montre aujourd’hui ces courts extraits de gameplay. Encore un peu de patience…
Rappelons que le jeu prendra pour contexte la période de la fin de la Guerre froide, grosso modo, et que le style de jeu sera plus proche de X-Com premier du nom, que de celui du néanmoins très réussi remake de Firaxis, XCOM.
Hooded Horse shares exciting 2023 line-up featuring all of the games
Manor Lords, Xenonauts 2, and many more tee the publisher up for a banner year as it presents some of the finest upcoming strategy, simulation, and RPG titles
January 10, 2023 – Hooded Horse is delighted to lift the curtain on its exciting and ambitious 2023 lineup. With 20 games and counting published by Hooded Horse, fans of strategy, simulation and RPGs have plenty to look forward to throughout the year. Here are a few of the titles Hooded Horse has lined up.
With over 1.4 million wishlists and one of the top ten most wishlisted games on Steam, we know everyone is eagerly awaiting more news on Slavic Magic’s upcoming medieval city-building sensation Manor Lords. This highly anticipated title is targeting a release onto Steam Early Access during 2023, with more features than what was seen during the October ‘22 Next Fest debut. Said debut went really well, thanks for asking, but you don’t need to take our word for it.
That’s not all – the first half of 2023 will see another exciting game making its debut. Xenonauts 2, an X-COM-style turn-based tactical experience from Goldhawk Interactive will be starting the next phase of its development journey with a Steam Early Access release in Q2. Sequel to 2014’s Xenonauts, this new game cranks everything up to 11 as you lead a multi-national force against an alien invasion during an alt-history Earth.
Sons of Valhalla, the evocative 2D pixel art action-base-building game form Pixel Chest, is due to release in the Summer. Build up your fortress, gather your forces, and lead them across England as you raid and conquer to try and find your lost love. We will have some additional news to share on Sons of Valhalla and Xenonauts 2 later this month.
Other exciting projects in Hooded Horse’s 2023 line-up include Heart of the Machine, Arcen’s sandbox strategy game where you’re the world’s first sentient AI, born in secret within a city in desperate need of saving from itself. And then there’s Breachway, the most recent member of the Hooded Horse stable – this slick roguelite strategy game from Edgeflow Studio mixes intricate turn-based tactical space combat with card mechanics for a compelling experience. Both are expected in the second half of 2023.
We’ve got plenty of other development partners hard at work making their games the best they can possibly be, all of which are targeting various release windows later in the year – from Bronze Age strategy RPG The Way of Wrath, to God-game Fata Deum, and gritty turn-based game Mars Tactics. That’s not to mention upcoming titles we’ve already talked a lot about, such as Alliance of the Sacred Suns, Falling Frontier, and Fragile Existence.
And, if that wasn’t all, we even have some surprises left for you as well! Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks for news on new unannounced games, as well as major announcements from our existing released titles as well. If you can’t tell already, we’re very excited for 2023!
