Some more details have been revealed about the upcoming XCOM, a first-person remake being worked on locally in Australia:
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.
Some new screenies are available on the game page and we've got a trailer which showcases some of the action, including some of the crazy alien technology you'll be up against.

Not all that impressed really. Models look a bit on the dodge side. The graphics are looking a bit dated. The enemy at the end and the aliens in general look awesome, just don't know how much appeal it has.

Looks like a re-hash of Crysis 1 but set in the 1940s.

I'm hoping this new XCOM is true to the original X-COM DOS installments with modern FPS parts combined with something like the old strategy elements. There didn't seem to be much of that in the trailer at all unfortunately (maybe hinted), so yeah if it's just 1940's Crysis it won't have earned the name and I will be very disappoint.
