XCOM: Enemy Unown
Released in 2012, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn based tactical game developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2k.
The game is a ‘reimagined’ remake of the 1994 Cult classic UFO: Enemy Unkown (XCOM: UFO Defense).
Set in the near future (2015) during an alien invasion, you’re put in charge of an elite multinational paramillitary organisation called XCOM that is tasked with defending earth.
Between missions the game has you building up your base, researching advanced technology and managing your troops and finances.
The main part of the game is the turn-based tactical missions where you take troops into locations to kill or capture alien enemies.
