XCOM EU: Welcome to the base

A bit late but here is the latest dev diary of XCOM: Enemy Unknown where Firaxis talks about the base, the place where the player will be elaborating offensive and defensive plans against the invading enemies. The game will be out on October 9th (12th in Europe).

Can't wait to customize my base. Should be one of the best turn based strategy games to come out in a long time.

I was a little worried about this game, if they will not destroy the original idea and gameplay of the first games, but it looks better and better.

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It's clear that they are properly developing this title compared 2 to, you'd think that would pay off. Soon we will find out. Very very curious about Scalebound too and more QB is always good. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Whatever team is behind Dave Jones who is the original creator of Crackdown. That's the team behind it, so, high hopes unless they have literally learned nothing since the 1st game. (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog Something this cloudgine will bring i assume. Is it the original devs making it? (6 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog A fair few games have come and gone since crackdown that improved on its traversal, sandbox nature, abilitiesand depth. So they will hopefully bring their A game to give us something new. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: The only fun came from some new grenades, weapons, 4P co-op, the wing suit and the fact you could pilot helicopters. The rest was utter turd. (6 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @KORNdog: Crackdown 2 had less than a year dev time I think. It was rushed, I dunno why. The city was exactly the same with a bit of debris and zombies. (6 Hours ago)
