Xenonauts 2 gets new missions and more in latest update

Prepare to take the war against the aliens to new heights as the biggest update to Hooded Horse and Goldhawk Interactive’s tactical strategy game Xenonauts 2 drops, bringing new threats and weapons to the fore.

he patience of the enemy commanders is wearing thin – frustrated with the lack of results and growing resistance, they’ve deployed Cruiser-class UFOs to crush the Xenonauts. While these ships are similar in size to the existing Abductor-class vessels, the crews are equipped with brand-new fusion weapons to lay waste to all who oppose them.

The Xenonauts need not fear, as reinforcements are coming to combat these new challenges. Hover Tanks, as well as new dropship and interceptor tiers, will improve humanity’s capacity to fight back. Those new fusion weapons look nice; it would be a shame if they were captured, reverse-engineered, and turned against the aliens...

The new update also adds more maps, primarily for the early game and the campaign against the cleaners. You can read the full change log here.

Xenonauts 2 is available in early access for PC via Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store for a base price of $39.99 / £34.99 / €39.99 / ¥4,980.
