First screens of 're-imagined' XCOM: Enemy Unknown

First in-game peek at the re-imagined and streamlined strategy game

Below are the first screenshots of XCOM: Enemy Unknown.


Enemy Unknown is the strategy game from Fireaxis - not 2K Marin's delayed XCOM shooter.

According to Game Informer, who posted the first shots following its announcement last week, the game is more of a re-imagining than a remake of the original.

"Re-imagining is probably a better term," says the site. "Firaxis' XCOM: Enemy Unknown doesn't directly copy the underlying game systems - for instance, soldiers have different stats than they did in the 1994 original - but the concepts are still here. Players still have to manage multiple resources and threats on a global scale in a seemingly hopeless war against extraterrestrial forces with far better technology and capabilities."

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