2K Games announced today that XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the highly anticipated action-strategy game from Firaxis Games, will be available for purchase in North America on October 9, 2012 and internationally on October 12, 2012. Additionally they also released a new developer deep dive trailer as well as a screenshot (above) of a special launch bonus. I don’t know if these are skins for your soldiers or an extra class, either way they look pretty badass.
I am not a big fan of strategy titles but after seeing this at PAX East I have been dying to play it. The style of gameplay reminded me of an underrated title that was critically acclaimed but was cancelled going into its sequel. The game was Gladius for the original Xbox, so perhaps the success of this title will warrant a return…probably not
