XCOM: Enemy Unknown "Casualties of War" Trailer Shows What It Means To Lose A Soldier
The latest trailer of XCOM: Enemy Unknown gets up close and personal with the men and unit who serve in XCOM.
2KGames and the developers at Firaxis have released a brand new trailer—perhaps the first of its kind—of their upcoming game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Classified as a "reboot" of the original XCOM series, the new game shares many similarities with the original titles, including turn-based strategy gameplay, and a strong emphasis on squad management.
This time around, players will get a lot more intimate with their soldiers' well-being with a host of characters far less expendable than their counterparts in the earlier games. They can still be injured and die, but with the amount of depth and detail they're putting into each character, you'll lose a lot more than just a unit on your squad.
As the commander of XCOM, the lives of these men and women are in your hands. It's up to you to recruit, train, and advance their skills and capabilities to counter the alien attack and minimize your casualties of war.
