You wanna murder some big ugly mutant crabs? Of course you do! It’s a Christmas tradition that you cannot question me on because you don’t know my life. We’ve done it for years – well, one year, at least, seeing as that’s how long it’s been sincelaunched. The XCOM-like post apocalyptic crab-shooting game sheds its Epic and Xbox Game Pass exclusivity today, and arrives on Steam and GOG with a couple of new expansions to boot.
“It was not our intention to scam anyone. The best we can do is offer compensation in the form of free extra content, which we will deliver throughout the launch year. This will include at least three major DLC packs. They will also receive a Steam key or GOG key, in addition to their Epic key, at the end of the exclusivity period. If they are not happy with this, we will give a full refund.”
The game hits Steam and GOG today as Phoenix Point: Year One Edition, which bundles its three DLCs in with the base game. Those are the story expansions,and , and the Living Weapons pack as well (which adds a load of weapons, obvs).

You can grab Phoenix Point: Year One Edition on, and the , when it launches at around 5pm GMT (9am PT) today.
