Firaxis teases more XCOM from them, vid inside

#1 Edited by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

Firaxis teased this very small snippet of a trailer for what looks like something XCOM related. A new game? DLC? They mentioned it was their next big project, so I would wager a guess to the next title in the series. For now, your guess is as good as mine.

Before debuting a teaser trailer for the game during a PAX East panel today, designer Jake Solomon said, "It's big," noting that "we're not going to be able to talk about it for a while."

Also XCOM soldiers will be new units in the next Civ V expansion, Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World:

if they are not going to be able to talk about it for a while, then i wager its probably a next gen project, i feel like if it was as simple as an expansion then it would have gotten an announcement here.

Super stoked regardless xcom is imo one of the best games of this generation. will throw money at these guys for more xcom anyday

The big reveal is that it's being ported to Mac. Good job wasting 100K on porting it to a platform that has less than 1% of steam accounts, Firaxis.

Considering they are reusing the council dude from the main game, this is (imo) most likely a beefy expansion type deal (like Terror from the Deep) with the same engine but a full new scenario, tile sets, units, customization, etc. And of course it's too teasery for a simple DLC.

Enemy Unknown was my first XCom experience and pretty much now I just want more XCom. Absolutely would love to see a new game from them or just a big expansion would be great. Can't wait to hear the details.

Also XCom units in Civ 5!! Freaking awesome. I was super pumped for that expansion already, but that little change gets me even more excited. That is such an awesome cross over.
