For those of you looking forward to the next chapter in the ongoing UFO strategy series, you better find something to hold you over for a few more weeks. Tri Synergy has announced that the next game in the X-Com inspired series series, UFO: Extraterrestrials, has been pushed out from its previous release date of February 23 until March 16.
For those not in the know, UFO: Extraterrestrials is a turn-based sci-fi strategy game set in 2025 on the newly colonized planet Esperanza, where mankind’s foray into outer space has a meeting with hostile alien life. In defense of their fledgling outer space outpost, the player is summoned by the Esperanza government to face this threat from deep space. The player will have at their disposal squads of soldiers, light and heavy support combat vehicles, robots and air units located in bases throughout the Esperanza. In addition, UFO: Extraterrestrials combines global strategy with small, squad-based tactical combat against an alien invasion.
