If you’re hankering to grapple with grey aliens and all that malarkey and the upcoming and probably final season of The X-Files is too far away, then Creative Mobile and Foxnext Games have you covered with The X-Files: Deep State, a new mobile platform game.
“Players assume the role of an FBI Special Agent,” the presser tells us. “Investigating mysterious crime scenes that defy explanation. They must uncover hidden clues, collect evidence, solve puzzles, interrogate witnesses and suspects to solve the case.” – which is a bit obvious, to be frank, but we know why we’re here os let’s not make UFO-haunted mountains out up cthonic molehills.
The adventure actually takes place between seasons 9 and 10, kicking off in the Spring of 2010, and will involve the overarching alien invasion plotline as well as standalone paranormal investigations. It’s free to play (yay!) with in-game purchases available (boo!) and will be released on iOS and Android.
When though? There’s a countdown on the official site – get ready for The X-Files Deep State in early February, 2018.
