Game Informer’s latest cover has blown the doors open to a brand new X-COM game from developer Firaxis best known for their Civilization games. Unlike the X-COM first person shooter being developed by 2K Marin, this one will be an out and out Real Time Strategy (RTS) game, something that should get unanimous approval from fans of the franchise.

Where the MIB at?

Firaxis are obviously huge fans and their love for the franchise has been reflected in what Steve Martin, president of the studio had to say, “It’s been a dream of ours to recreate X-COM with our unique creative vision. We’re huge fans of the original game and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-envision a game that is as beloved as X-COM. We were careful to keep XCOM: Enemy Unknown true to the elements that made X-COM such a revered game while delivering an entirely new story and gameplay experience for both die-hard X-COM fans and newcomers to the franchise.”

I personally haven’t played any X-COM game but if you wish to check them out, now would be the perfect time to do so as Steam is offering the entire catalogue for just $5 as part of today’s deal.
