Corruption 2029 looks like XCOM with cloaking goodness

Would you like more turn-based tactical combat with a squad of augmented soldiers who destroy their foes from cover? How about some dystopian near-future antics? If you said yes to any of these, put Corruption 2029 on your radar.

Made by Swedish developer The Bearded Ladies, which brought us Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden, Corruption 2029 is a continuation of dystopian turn-based tactical strategy. Players will control a squad of heavily augmented soldiers who are trying to infiltrate a regime to learn what caused America to turn into a war-torn wasteland.

Corruption 2029 will allow players to avoid combat by being stealthy, getting intel without the enemy realising it. If combat is required, a good recon of the area and finding good vantage points will give you an advantage against superior numbers, or make your very first turn as damaging as possible. This style was apparent in Mutant Year Zero and it will be good to see how it has been refined.

Get ready to dismantle tyranny with powerful skills and weapons, taking enemies down with a stealth tech that reminds me of Predator.

Corruption 2029 is just around the corner too, with a February 17 release on Epic Games Store.

If it has the letters RPG in it, I am there. Still battling with balancing trying to play every single game that grabs my interest, getting 100% in a JRPG, and devoting time to my second home in Azeroth.
