XCOM: Enemy Unknown Announced


Posted January 5, 2012 - By Stephen Johnson

XCOM: Enemy Unknown AnnouncedMany fans of the original XCOM series of strategy games were perplexed and/or angry when the series reboot was announced as first-person shooter. Well, XCOMmies, today is your lucky day. A second XCOM title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, was announced this morning, and it will be a full-on strategy game developed by the masters of the genre, Firaxis Games.  Firaxis are the company responsible for the legendary Civilization series, so I don't think I'm alone in predicting big, big things.

The word comes by way of Game Informer; the magazine will feature XCOM: Enemy Unknown on the cover of its next issue, that will delve into the game's "destructible tactical environments, the interaction between the real-time strategic view and the turn-based combat, how the XCOM organization improves its capabilities as the war rages on."

"It’s been a dream of ours to recreate X-COM with our unique creative vision. We’re huge fans of the original game and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-envision a game that is as beloved as X-COM," Steve Martin, president of Firaxis Games, told Game Informer. "We were careful to keep XCOM: Enemy Unknown true to the elements that made X-COM such a revered game while delivering an entirely new story and gameplay experience for both die-hard X-COM fans and newcomers to the franchise."

XCOM: Enemy Unknown comes out for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC this fall.
