Strategy reboot XCOM: Enemy Unknown has a release date following a recent press event in London.
We managed to catch up with Firaxis associate producer Pete Murray to ask exactly why the respected developer decided to return to the aged franchise.
He explained: "Because they represent moments that were really happy for us in our earlier lives, and we want people to have those moments - we want to share that with them. I want you to be terrified at 3am in your dorm room - that's why we keep coming back to these classic titles."
