XCOM: Enemy Unknown is nearly here, the time for everyone to see just how well Firaxis has handled the franchise. The launch trailer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now available for your viewing pleasure, as it sets you up as being the last hope to save humanity from the alien invaders. You train and recruit new troops in the XCOM headquarters, research new technology, and figure out the best way to keep the planet safe. Everything in the trailer is rendered in brilliant CG, with some very cool effects and weapons on display. Oh, and some rather nasty aliens you have to fight. A demo for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is available to get you in the mood for the full game, and there is still time to pre-order on Steam to receive some extra in-game items, Team Fortress 2 gear, and a free copy of Civilization V.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown arrives on October 9 for the PC, PS3, and 360.
