From The Award-Winning Creators Of Civilization Comes An Action Strategy Game About Humanity's Last Stand

featureThreatened by an unknown enemy, the Earth's governments unite to form an elite paramilitary organization, known as XCOM, to combat this extraterrestrial attack.

As the commander of XCOM, you control the global defense team in a battle against a terrifying alien invasion by creating a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle.

And so it begins...

Featuring a bold new origin story told from a first-person perspective, XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his team against the threat of human extinction from an insidious otherworldly force. But every enemy is an opportunity – players will strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and by the science of desperation – turn the invaders' weapons against them.

Armed with these lethal new tools of war, players will command their squad on XCOM's front lines: Main Street, USA.

Features

GLOBAL THREAT:

Interact and negotiate with governments around the world to combat the alien threat.

STRATEGIC BASE OF OPERATIONS:

Build and expand your XCOM headquarters, recruit and develop unique soldiers to take into battle, and research alien technology to expand your weapons and capabilities.

TACTICAL MULTIPLAYER:

Mix and match aliens and soldiers and combine abilities to outsmart and overpower your opponent.

Recruit the Finest:

The player leads an elite field team of specialized government agents into battle, combining deep, visceral gunplay with powerful Sci Fi abilities. A special tactical mode lets you see the Battlescape where all possible actions the agents might take are revealed for your command.

An Elite Division:

Plan and equip your missions from the underground XCOM base: the center for researching the alien technology, building out your weapon cache and choosing the agents to accompany you on each adventure.

Capture and Harness Alien Technology:

Strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology and turn the invaders' weapons against them. Equip your team with an arsenal of powerful weapons utilizing modified alien tech.

Feel the Weight of Mankind's Last Stand:

The American Dream is crumbling all around you as the invaders corrupt the country, one town at a time.

  • How do you stop a force that acts without conscience, a force whose sole desire is to corrupt and consume all that it touches?
  • How do you stop an enemy with no weaknesses, an enemy that cannot be harmed by conventional technology?
  • How will you react to the loss of your perceived reality, and the corruption of the world around you?

Rating Summary:
This is a strategy game in which players must save present-day Earth from an alien invasion.

As players manage resources, research weapon technology, and monitor alien presence, they can dispatch squads of soldiers to attack human and insect like creatures in turn based combat. From a 3/4-top-down perspective, players use assault rifles, grenades, and other military-grade weapons to kill nearby enemies.

Battles are accompanied by intermittent cut scenes that depict close up (e.g., over-the-shoulder) instances of violence: soldiers getting impaled or beaten to death by alien creatures; realistic explosions that result in larger blood sprays.

If an alien "implants" an egg into a dead human, the character will eventually explode amid additional gibbing effects. Some scenes depict dead or dying soldiers whose bodies are burned or mutilated. The words "f**k," "sh*t," and "a*shole" can be heard in the dialogue.
