XCOM: Enemy Within - New Trailer & Previews

by Couchpotato, 2013-09-01 00:46:18

2K Games and Firaxis have released a new "War Machines" trailer for XCOM: Enemy Within.

The second part of the newsbit deals with two previews for the game.


We LOVED the original XCOM Enemy Unknown, so when I found out that the expansion, XCOM Enemy Within, was going to be at PAX, I knew I had to drop by their booth. I had high hopes, and sure enough the hands-off demo I saw made my trip worth it. The demo took place on a new map location, on top of a hydroelectric dam, and immediately looked better than any map in the original game. It started with two rookie XCOM operatives getting off the Skyranger and dying within seconds, as their ilk is wont to do.

I've never been shy about my love of XCOM, even if The Bureau left a bit to be desired. It should come as no surprise that I was ecstatic when I found out I'd be getting hands on with Enemy Within, the upcoming standalone expansion for 2012's strategy masterpiece, Enemy Unknown. While I wasn't quite convinced that it would be able to improve such a stellar gameplay experience, everything I saw makes me less cynical about the prospect, and more hopeful that it will be exactly what every XCOM fan never knew they wanted
