Currently in development from Trese Brothers who made Star Traders: Frontiers and Templar Battleforce, the upcoming Cyber Knights: Flashpoint looks exciting.

What is it? At it's core it's a fusion of turn-based tactical combat, with base building all about heists in a cyberpunk setting. Previously funded on Kickstarter, they're gearing up for a public demo in Steam Next Fest due later this month but to get you ready they've released a new trailer showing off all their work. As a big fan of anything resembling XCOM, I'm rather excited to get a chance to try this one finally.

Game Features:

  • 3rd Person Turn-based Squad Tactics: The best of modern tactical RPGs—gridless movement, cover & overwatch, initiative manipulation and more. Outsmart enemy security with creative stealth & hacking or go loud with powerful weapons & abilities.
  • Unique Cyberpunk Stories: Contacts, squad members, and world events will weave together in stories reminiscent of the pen and paper cyberpunk RPGs we played for years while building the lore of this world.
  • Thrill of the Heist: Choose your jobs & work your network for advantages to pull this off. Get the crew you’ll need & gear them up. Finally, look for ways to score a little more—what’s the worst that could happen?
  • Power-Player Strategy: Balance factions, favors, reputation and more. Rivals, fixers, arms dealers and corporate big shots... who you work for, who you fail or betray, all of it can open and close opportunities for you. Watch your heat, and try to make sure more people owe you than the other way around.
  • Endless Builds: Experiment with endless combinations of talents, multi-classing, cyberware, weapons and gear to build the perfect team.
  • Safehouse Base Building: Build out your safehouse and upgrade rooms such as weapon shop, hund kennel and medical bay.
  • Evolving Characters: The jobs you take have consequences for both your crew and connections. Loyalty, traits, cybernetics and escapes—you might get offworld in the end, but will any of you be the same?

You can follow it on Steam. It will have Native Linux support like their previous games.

I really like the depth in Trese Brothers games. I played both Templar Battleforce and Star Traders: Frontiers. Both of those are amazing games with complex mechanics. So I backed Cyber Knights in Kickstarter campaign and looking forward to play it. :-)

I backed this on kickstarter, so cantw ait for the full release (even if I have Alpha/Beta access I prefer to play once games are complete)
