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 weâ€™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!
Xenonauts needs a Core 2 Duo E4400 2.0GHz or Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ processor coupled with a GeForce GT 340 to run system requirements at recommended high graphics settings. This will return around 60FPS at 1080p screen res. 2 GB will also be needed to achieve the Xenonauts rec specs and get 60FPS. Your PC needs 1 GB system memory as well for min. Your graphics card will need to be capable of running DirectX 9. We suggest a 9 year old PC to play smoothly.
