X-com reboot's gameplay showcased

Alien activity caught on video

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

2K has released the first in-game footage of Xcom: Enemy Unknown, the anticipated refresh of the much-loved RTS.

The clip below shows various combat gameplay and a new base, which players can customise and use to interact with characters. The game itself, developed by Firaxis, will seem quite different to those familiar with the original X-Com too. Check it out.

The reboot was originally pegged for a March 2012 release but was pushed back to the 2013 fiscal year. Seeing as that kicks off from April, the waiting for Xcom: Enemy Unknown might nor be that long.

The only real question is, just how much has the original been butchered and can the game live up to its hype? History isn't in its favour. Gamers are well aware of what can happen when 2K gets involved with reboots of popular franchises. ®
