In case you missed it late yesterday afternoon, XCOM 2 got announced. Cue ecstatic whooping and a hollerin’, as the granddaddy of tactical strategy makes a comeback. Details were a little scarce when the news broke yesterday, but now we’ve got our mitts on the first trailer, plucked straight from the webbed paws of the unsuspecting alien invaders themselves.
It’s looking predictably great of course, as the XCOM 2 Moment of Truth trailer gives us a cinematic slice of the action. A group of XCOM infantry must go undercover for some urban warfare. Aliens have taken join-control of Earth, and the heavily outnumbered XCOM must engage in guerilla tactics to overcome two foes - the ruling Advent Government and the insidious alien populace.
“Firaxis proved they could reimagine a beloved franchise with XCOM: Enemy Unknown, a Game of the Year award-winning title,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “With XCOM 2, the team is breathing new life into the series by adding an epic narrative and challenging players to overcome near impossible odds.”
XCOM 2 is heading exclusively to PC in November this year. Look out for a full gameplay reveal during E3 2015, here on Game Debate.
