Capes is an upcoming tactical strategy game from Spitfire Interactive and Daedalic Entertainment. Due out in 2024, a new demo has been put up with expanded and improved mechanics to play through.
A game where fans of XCOM will apparently feel right at home, I'm certainly excited to see this and Cyber Knights: Flashpoint release. The story in Capes follows on twenty years from where supervillians won, creating a dystopian city where developing superpowers is a crime and no one has dared oppose them. So naturally you're going to build a team of heroes and take back the city.
The new demo includes 4 missions along with the ability to fast-forward gameplay during enemy turns, a quick save option, difficulty settings, improved cinematics, an improved UI, improved gamepad support and additional language support. Quite a big upgrade for it.
Additionally they're doing a new video series leading up to the release with the first episode out now:
- Be Mighty: Play as heroic protectors of the innocent, each with unique skills and powers. Master your hero and unleash devastating ultimate abilities!
- Assemble Your Team: Select the right team for the right mission. Combat isn’t based on random numbers, so choose wisely to win the day!
- Level Up: Complete challenging missions and side-quests to improve your heroes with new abilities and powerful upgrades!
- Defeat Evil: Face down vile villains and criminal corporate henchmen. Do you have what it takes to free your city from the clutches of villainy!
Capes will have Native Linux support and you can check out the demo on Steam.
