August 14 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. As per our recent hand-on preview, this is one to definitely keep and eye on - doubly so if you're a fan of the XCOM series. In Phantom Doctrine you get a lengthy single-player campaign that features turn-based missions across the globe, a cinematic story, and being able to manage a team of spies.

Here's the conspiracy-filled launch trailer. Where a wall filled with face, places, and string is pure espionage. And not Charlie Kelly level insanity.


Players lead The Cabal, a secret organization fighting back against a global conspiracy trying to control the world at the peak of the Cold War. Command your base of operations in the shadows: recruit and train agents, investigate cases, forge documents and identities, research new tech and biochemical engineering, and interrogate and brainwash enemies to gain a tactical edge.

The campaign, which is touted at running over 40 hours, let's you play as either a "a KGB counterintelligence operative or a renegade CIA wet work commando". Trust the American to get the over-the-top one-man army description. Oh, and as an added bonus the soundtrack was composed by Marcin Przybylowicz of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt fame.
