You’re Our Last Hope in XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been complete for many weeks now but it will finally be released next Tuesday. The long-in-development turn-based strategy title will feature intense gameplay that will leave the fates of squad members in your (hopefully) capable hands. Who lives and who dies is left up to a dice roll mechanic that hopefully will be on your side, and the proper placement of troops. So don’t grow too attached to your party as the next mission might have them coming back in a body bag.

Firaxis’ XCOM: Enemy Unknown ships October 9th here in North America (and on the 12th in Europe and Australia) and will be available for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC platforms. In the mean time, though, here’s a launch trailer that should get you pumped up for next week.
