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.
