    Key Features of XCOM 2012

    Here is a list of key elements that will be available in 2K Marin’s XCOM 2012 based on news and announcements made so far.

    Very little detail about the gameplay has been revealed. We do know however, that the game follows Special Agent William Carter and his elite team of special agents as they battle an unknown extraterrestrial threat against humanity. Carter and his team must systematically battle the alien force while using the opportunity to capture and research alien technology, and equipping these technology in the fight against the menace.

    We also know that XCOM 2012 is a first-person tactical action sci-fi game and a reboot of the classic tactical strategy X-Com series originally developed by Mythos Games and MicroProse. It will apparently focus on a new origin story too!
