With the new season of The X-Files well under way, Creative Mobile and FoxNext Games’ upcoming game now has a release date. The X-Files: Deep State is scheduled to be released on February 6th, 2018. The game will be a puzzle adventure game where players explore a variety of cases involving aliens, government conspiracies, and other X-Filesy topics. While players will be able to customize their own character, the game will also feature appearances from some of the series regulars. Deep State will take place in 2010, between the 9th and 10th seasons of The X-Files TV series. Creative Mobile and FoxNext are promising to release new cases for players to tackle every month. FoxNext is also working on Marvel: Strike Force which is already available in select regions.
If you’re hoping for a retro point and click adventure game like Thimbleweed Park, you’re likely out of luck. The X-Files: Deep State appears to be taking a more casual approach with a focus on storytelling. Gameplay will involve finding hidden clues, collecting evidence, and interrogating witnesses. As Deep State will have a focus on storytelling and unravelling the game’s cases, players will be able to make decisions that impact the game’s story as they play through cases.
The X-Files: Deep State is scheduled to be released on February 6th, 2018, and it will be free to play with in app purchases when it launches on Android, iOS, and Facebook. Here’s a trailer with more information:
