The truth is out there, and next year, Fox will allow us to rediscover it with the 11th season of the award-winning cult series The X-Files. But TV won't be the only place where you can experience the series.
Creative Mobile and FoxNext Games have announced that it will release a new mobile game called The X-Files: Deep State in 2018. It's an officially licensed game that will coincide with the series, just in time for its 25th anniversary.
"Players assume the role of an FBI Special Agent, investigating mysterious crime scenes that defy explanation. They must uncover hidden clues, collect evidence, solve puzzles, interrogate witnesses and suspects to solve the case," the company said in a press statement.
"The events of X-Files: Deep State start to unfold sometime during spring 2010, taking place between the TV series season 9 and 10. The game will feature a storyline revolving around the alien invasion and government conspiracies, as well as self-contained episodes related to various paranormal cases."
Here's what's included with the gameplay:
- The game is free to play with in-app purchases
- New cases to solve on a monthly basis, with myth-arc and monsters of the week
- Customizable character appearance and style options
- Players make moral decisions that impact the storyline
- Dynamic gameplay complimented with an engaging storyline
- The game will feature appearances of fan-favorite characters
"We really hope that the X-Files fans will like the game, it has everything that we loved so much in the X-Files television series: human experiments, social insecurity, conspiracies and all kinds of creepy stuff," Creative Mobile said in a press statement.
The trailer for Deep State can be found below. It's definitely on the teaser side, but should be a real romp for fans of the show.
