If you’re one of those old timers who remember the awesomeness that was the original X-com games, you may have been somewhat saddened by last years revelation of a reboot of the franchise, taking a decidedly more first person action approach.

Well fear not enthusiastic but disappointed, old school X-com fans! Today Firaxis (Civilisation games) have announced plans for a turn based strategy game, titled XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It promises to be all the things the first person game isn’t and thus promises to be a lot like the originals at least with intention. More updates will appear on the site as they are made available but already I can feel the turn based strategy lurve rising to the top of the original ire.
