Accurate X-COM Remake on the Way from Firaxis

In April of 2010, 2K Games announced it was reviving the X-COM franchise as a first-person shooter called XCOM. Many fans, however, were less than thrilled about that because X-COM was always a tactical game that required some thought before you acted. Suffice it to say, 2K Games has finally learned what actual X-COM fans want, and that is an updated version of the classic formula and not another FPS. 2K Games has tasked Firaxis Games with handling the remake of X-COM to deliver a more accurate representation of the past games. Firaxis is best known for the Civilization series, and seeing how that is one of the better turn-based strategy games around, it looks like 2K Games has finally got it right. XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a return to roots for the series, but with Firaxis giving it an all-new story and updated gameplay experience that is sure to please fans both new and old. Firaxis is keeping things under wraps for now, but the upcoming February issue of Game Informer has plenty more details.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will launch on the PC, PS3, and 360 later this fall.
