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).

@scoobs0688: so when you buy a new game and install it on your PC you just start playing without ever going to the settings menu? If so, it's exactly the same as the console. If not, not easier. (31 minutes ago)
