According to their listings on the Epic Game Store, “Spirit Of The North is a single-player 3rd-person adventure game inspired by the breathtaking and mysterious landscapes of Iceland. Play as an ordinary red fox whose story becomes entwined with the guardian of the Northern Lights, a female spirit fox,” while The Captain is a retro-inspired adventure game where players “will have to race back home across the galaxy.”
“Collect new friends on your journey. Make new enemies,” continues the game’s description. “You won’t be able to save everyone. Who will you leave behind? Which civilisations will you save – or destroy – along the way?”
The creator of the X-COM franchise previously claimed that the Epic Games Store is great for indie developers and games, after his studio Snapshot Games released Phoenix Point on the storefront as a timed exclusive in 2019.
“Creative director Lars Gustavsson, who has been with the franchise since the beginning and is affectionately known as Mr Battlefield, has decided he is ready for a new adventure,” wrote Battlefield general manager Byron Beede. “We would like to thank him for his invaluable experience, expertise, and friendship for all these years.”
