Originally planned for March 2012 , but then inexplicably pushed until fiscal 2013, any time after April 1st, 2012, Take Two's latest financial result revealed that XCOM (not to be confused with its XCOM: Enemy Uknown strategy game, is now scheduled for fiscal year 2014, a full year later than expected.
XCOM is a gripping tactical action experience set in mid-century America, where the player leads an elite field team of specialised government agents into battle – combining deep, visceral gunplay with powerful sci-fi abilities. Together, they face a vicious and otherworldly enemy, who conspires to shatter our world and rebuild it in their own image.
Featuring a bold new origin story told from a first-person perspective, XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his veteran team against the threat of human extinction. But every enemy is an opportunity – players will strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and by the science of desperation – turn the invaders’ weapons against them. Armed with these lethal new tools of war, players will command their squad on XCOM’s front lines: Main Street, USA.
