Upton, MA, November 6th 2006- Tri Synergy, www.trisynergy.com, and Chaos Concepts are officially delaying the release of their new strategy game, UFO Extraterrestrials until February, 2007.  The hard decision was made to delay the release of UFO Extraterrestrials to allow for better play balance and  game enhancements.

In the year 2025 a newly colonized planet has encountered alien life.  Without warning or communication these aliens have brutally attacked the people and planet.  Now it is up to a special government force to protect the planet and eradicate the alien threat.

UFO Extraterrestrials features X-Com style tactical strategy and incorporates light and heavy vehicles as well as ground forces which can be trained and specialized as they gain experience.  In combat UFO features a free movement system.  The environment is destructible, meaning if you can't find a door to a building a simple rocket launcher can make one for you.  

The game also features a grand strategy map, where you are constructing bases, developing new weapons, and battling the alien threat on a large scale level.  When the battle over your new world begins embark on a second quest to liberate Earth from the clutches of the alien menace.

The game will be available from retail stores in the US and Canada including Electronics Boutique, Gamestop, Staples, Bestbuy, Fry's, CompUSA, Circuit City , and more!  Additionally the game will be available from the Tri Synergy website at www.trisynergy.com

Unfortunately, that's very close to the release date of another anticipated UFO game.

And how did I know this was going to happen? And why, oh why, are they going to try to release the game when Afterlight hits the shelves? That's could be a mistake. Taking this into consideration, I could see the release pushed back even further to even summer or fall of 2007. Still, I can't wait!  :D

Unfortunate... I don't know if I'll get them both and Afterlight does have a priority. What can you do, money is limited. :D

For me, UFO: ET has priority, ALTAR has disappointed me two times too many for AL to have priority :D

If any of you visited UFO: ET's news page recently, you saw the team is nearing the end of bug fixing (256/293 fixed). That's the good news at least. The even better news is that the release has been relisted to the 28th of February.  :)

Hmmm i just watched the ufo extraterrestrials video, and it does look like xcom 3 indeed  :)

The only thing which borthers me are the clumsy animations of the soldiers when they walk.
Releasing the game in february just after afterlight is a bad idea but better they fix the bugs, AL will surely have more than my mattress  :)
