Falling Skies: The Game Blends TNT's Hit Sci-fi Drama with XCOM

If you're a fan of TNT's hit sci-fi, post-apocalyptic television series Falling Skies and of XCOM's tactical gameplay, you're in luck: turn-based, tactical strategy RPG Falling Skies: The Game has launched for Windows PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U. The game takes place between the events of the show's third and fourth seasons, starting with the 2nd Mass stumbling upon the wreckage of an ambushed convoy and meeting a survivor "who claims he can create a destructive weaspon that will aid in the human resistance against the Espheni invaders."

Falling Skies: The Game features squad-based tactical combat with a non-linear campaign, characters from the show, map randomization, dynamic AI, and squad member customization. Yep, it's pretty much XCOM: Enemy Unknown with a Falling Skies coat of paint, but that's not necessarily a bad thing.
