E3 2012: X-Com Enemy Unknown trailer

1 min read


There are two X-com games coming in the near future. There’s the delayed, strategic first-person shooter from 2K Marin; the one that’s drawn ire from gamers because of the unnecessary genre shift.

Then there’s the one fans are waiting for; an isometric, turn-based strategy game from Firaxis that takes the series back to its roots.

Firaxis has released a trailer for X-Com: Enemy Unknown – showing the alien scourge we’ll be faced with. Doesn’t seem to contain any gameplay though. It’s coming to PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in October.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
