All this game is missing is an inspirational speech by Bill Pullman.
If you read my review for Avernum, you know that I missed out on most of the major PC hits of the 90s. So it should go without saying that I did not partake in the white-hot popularity of the XCOM series. I was one of those people who thought the upcoming first person take on the franchise looked pretty good, and I avoided all of the rage surrounding the departure of the game from its strategy roots. Taking that into consideration, I find myself extremely intrigued by the game that Firaxis is working on—XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Available now for the PC, and Mac.
Pre-order bonuses have also been unveiled.
Following the delay of the XCOM FPS, 2K Games announced earlier this year its plans to release XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a game more like the beloved strategy franchise it was based on. Those waiting for XCOM's return now have a solid date to look forward to. The action-strategy game will be released on October 9, 2012 on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
