Game Informer has today revealed it’s next cover game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown which is being developed by Firaxis Games.
The title is to be released on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 and will provide a full-on strategy experience that puts players in command of a global anti-alien defense force.
“It’s been a dream of ours to recreate X-COM with our unique creative vision. We’re huge fans of the original game and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-envision a game that is as beloved as X-COM,” said Steve Martin, president of Firaxis Games in the latest issue of Game Informer. “We were careful to keep XCOM: Enemy Unknown true to the elements that made X-COM such a revered game while delivering an entirely new story and gameplay experience for both die-hard X-COM fans and newcomers to the franchise.”
February’s Game Informer goes into all the gory details so details will no doubt arrive on the net soon after.
