To GeRaLTo from last week "... but the Earth screen is coming. You know they're holding back on that one because it's so iconic!"

and there it is! And it looks amazing!!!!

Destructible terrain, Julian Gollop (creator of original XCOM) might be pleased to know it's there. He was interviewed by EDGE on what he thought of this remake.

Hehe indeed. That pic looks really nice. Those screens look sharper then last week and small part of me wants to believe.... Tpp is still out of the place tho.

Third-person perspective makes me think of Full Spectrum Warrior or Valkyria Chronicles, which were also turn-based. Maybe this is not just a remake?

see I never played the original, and to me the alien designs from the fps are far more unique and interesting... but see here we are dealing with the usual issue of "hardcore gamers" just wanting the same damn thing over and over again... DMC being another example... don't get me wrong this game looks interesting I just hope they don't go and change the fps game' enemies and such because of a bunch of nostalgia bitten gamers had a big hissy fit about something they probably hadn't even played. If the two games can exist as different takes on the same universe that will be fine.

It really isn't gamers wanting the 'same damn thing' Turn based strategy games are incredibly rare, and XCOM was arguably the best ever. People saying they want a reasonably faithful follow up to a game which is over 15 years old is hardly asking for more of the same.

The FPS is the same thing, over and over again. Kiddies who don't care about the IP can find about a billion other shooters to play.

This is realy SOMETHING! Dont know, if its gonna have the same feeling as the original UFO, but still looking forward to this. I would like to have the same music as well. The Earth looks great!!!

I'm extremely happy with what I see so far. I kept wondering and I guess "hoping" that the earth screens would be cool... but this far exceeded my expectations. That looks beautiful. I would like to see more detail in the combat screens, as long as it doesn't loose the vibe of XCOM's origins. I mean... look at what we WERE playing- so detail wasn't as important as atmosphere but, it would be nice!

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah agreed. Nothing like getting that Soldier stunt driver skin instead of an event specific one D: (28 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And a bunch of dances and voice lines. (29 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I got one drop in the last event, one non-event legendary, and I unlocked another two with credits. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The last event had a ton of skins but it seemed extra bad because they were all legendary. That didn't help. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Another annoyance is getting that rare legendary during an event and having it not be an event skin. (31 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks it was really at it's worse during the last event too. They released more random collectibles so the drop rate was even more obscure. The dupe money has always been really shit though (31 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Yea.. and I think dupes made it a lot more annoying too. (31 minutes ago)
