Quote

The development studio Chaos Concept has decided   to spend more time improving the design of the global gameplay as well   as the tactical combat.  Some of the extra development time will be   devoted to adding new features based on feedback by the fans at www.ufo-scene.com.  Some of the new features include:
  • Alien mobile fortresses which the player must battle on both the globe and in tactical combat.
  • New player-controlled aircraft, including several types of   helicopters.  Different aircraft will have different combat capabilities   forcing the player to use the right craft for the right job.
  • More varied alien abilities in tactical combat to keep the players on   their toes.  For example, the Magetra have the unique ability to consume   dead aliens and humans to heal and energize themselves during combat.
  • More varied tactical combat mission types.

I'd rather see a change in tactical combat system, not just in mission types. But something is better than nothing. I'm glad the game is still on track.

Their webpage now says 'quarter IV, 2012'.

They've really screwed the pooch here.   They'll be going head to head with the real X-Com and Xenonauts.  I think I know how that will play out....

That looks pretty bad.... I mean the delay


Quote

UFO2ET is such a massive undertaking for our small team.  We do not want to release the game until we are sure that we are delivering the best possible experience to our fans.  I know this delay will be disappointing to our fans, but they can take comfort in the knowledge that UFO2 will be even better because of it.  More aliens to fight.  More technology to research.  Keep watching our website for new screenshots and information about the game.


But overall it looks great on screenies so I keep fingers crossed for those guys.

We're Q.IV 2012 since almost a month, will the game be postponed a fourth time? (cancelled??) Answer for New Year's Day?

I believe they would like the smoke after XCOM to fall down.

Also to be honest - I am more waiting for this game than Xenonanuts. Not that I wouldn't like to play Xenos too.

I don't think they have to, unless they make it too a Steam exclusive game.
There's a market (smaller ok) for non-Steam games. their game should be a hit if they sell it as independant or on GOG.

Me too, but for Xenonauts is a Desura game. I don't like Desura for it's a Steam-like (for independants) as you need their platform.

You need to update your information ;)

Quote

A pre-order of Xenonauts will grant you access to the current development build of Xenonauts, as well as a copy of the final game on either Desura or Steam.

Taken from their site. Also I think they have lowered their price to 22 EUR from 40 ? I might even buy that premium.

There are some screenshots, oddly enough the geoscape shows Earth, I was expecting something Mercury-er. Anyhow, they don't really look that good, this game looks exactly the same as the first one, which is now about 7 years old already.

Exactly, Why have the title "Battle For Mercury" when it has the atlas of Earth? Ah who knows, the first game was passable, story line wasn't at all interesting.
IMHO the original title "Shadows Over Earth" makes a hell of a lot more sense with uh you know an Earth geoscape.....

Noticed though the screen shots are dated 2013, so who knows.

@AS - we don't know what the game will be like on the release, so I don't see a point to complain about the title yet. And as for graphics - the style is maybe the same but the graphics are better than the previous - much better. And also I don't see any point to complain about them since there are plenty of indie games that uses old Atari graphics and people don't complain.

He didn't complain about the title, I did. This game isn't even a successor or a tribute to X-COM it's a knock off plain and simple.

And what this game doesn't have what X-COM has? And where it was told that this is a successor to X-COM?

All of the screenshots are dated 2013, even the oldest ones if you go back through the archive on that page, so I guess the year is more for copyright purposes than showing the age of the screenshots.

Makes it hard to tell what's new though!

Hi, i lurk as well on their forums and lately they have posted some new material, a few screenshots of the geoscape, all  alien and some human airship pics. People on forum are pressing for a gameplay video, which they seem to be putting together prettty slowly...(couple of months tellin us they are doing it)
I can say that they seem to have revived lately, but they keep a very hermetic attitude with their fans, which is very bad for game given for dead and its lingering doubt of never be completed.

The art style is not bad, but those overly saturated purples tones on everything dont settle good with me at all.
