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).

Tripwire will also roll out a free weekend for Rising Storm, which won't give you the game permanently free but will allow players to try the game out free-of-charge for a limited time. (18 Hours ago)
