New XCOM: Enemy Unknown screens

Fresh insights into the re-imagined strategy classic

Brand new XCOM: Enemy Unknown screens have emerged today from the re-imagined strategy series which is heading to consoles and being developed by Civilization gurus Firaxis.


There's plenty of strategy stuff on view from the game, which was recently announced and joins 2K Marin's FPS shooter to mark a revival for one of gaming's most fondly remembered franchises.

Firaxis president Steve Martin recently said when XCOM was announced that: "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."

What do you think the prospects are for a brand new XCOM outing? We can remember many a happy hour playing the original UFO Enemy Unknown and its cracking sequel Terror From the Deep.
