    [​IMG]GameWatcher has a Phantom Doctrine preview. The turn-based strategy game will be released 2018:


    Phantom Doctrine Hands-On Preview

    XCOM is hands-down one of the best strategy franchises I've ever played, revolutionising real time tactics with amazing production values and an emotional high-stakes story that really upped the bar for everyone else. It's success inspired dozens of other studios and resulted in a number of similar titles of varying quality, which is a great thing for fans of the genre.

    Luckily for us, the folks behind Hard West are back at it again, this time with a Cold War-inspired title set in the 1980's. Named Phantom Doctrine, the latest title from CreativeForge Games revolves around espionage and international deceit, taking an eventful yet decidedly less bombastic approach to tactical combat than Firaxis' "save the world from aliens" franchise.
    All in all, Phantom Doctrine is an incredibly promising game, featuring a huge array of player mechanics that seem equally inspired by spy tropes and good game design alike. As a fan of XCOM, I believe we can never have enough good tactical games, and this Cold War title seems well poised to be the next one.
