A re-imagining of one of gaming's most storied and beloved franchises, XCOM combines the strategic core of the groundbreaking franchise with a suspense-filled narrative and distills it into a tense and unique first-person shooter experience. The game depicts humanity's struggle against an unknown enemy, putting players directly into the shoes of an FBI agent tasked with identifying and eliminating the growing threat. True to the roots of the franchise, players will be placed in charge of overcoming high-stake odds through risky strategic gambits coupled with heart-stopping combat experiences that pit human ingenuity -- and frailty -- against a foe beyond comprehension.
By setting the game in a first-person perspective, players will be able to feel the tension and fear that comes with combating a faceless enemy that is violently probing and plotting its way into our world.
- Experience XCOM from an Immersive New Perspective: Step into the shoes of FBI agent William Carter and confront firsthand the horror, tension and fear of the unknown.
- Call the Shots and Bear the Consequences: The enemy threat is far-reaching and indiscriminate. As the man in charge, you will be tasked with deciding where and when to respond to the disturbances across the United States, and how best to use the limited resources at your disposal. Your choices and efforts have a direct involvement in the creation of new tools and technology that will aid in your battle to save mankind. But make a bad decision, and the consequences will be felt most by those you have failed.
- Struggle Against a Faceless Enemy: Knowledge is power. Confront the enemy in the field, and conduct research and investigation to learn more about them. Command your science and engineering teams to build tools to exploit their weaknesses as you struggle to gain the upper hand against the growing threat.
- No Two Experiences Are the Same: The player-driven, yet narrative-rich campaign progresses according to your choices and performance, while dynamic, unscripted conditions and emergent combat systems ensure that no two field operations play out the same way.
