2K Reboots XCOM As First-Person Shooter

XCOM is the reboot of the alien invasion game, X-COM. At E3 2011 Kevin Kelly got to check out the first person shooter and came away very impressed.

"Since this guy has blown your cover, you'll quickly move into the main portion of the game, which is issuing commands to your squad while moving up and taking control of different situations. Here, a group of Outsiders have holed up behind some sandbags, and they've erected a force shield of some sort. Since the aliens can identify you as the commander of your unit, they focus the shield on you, making it impossible for you to fire on them. You'll do this via a Tactical View that is a nod to the older games in the series, and it gives you an overview of the battlefield, allowing you to plant a diversion."

Check out Kevin's full impressions of his XCOM demo in his XCOM E3 2011 preview.
