E3 2011: XCOM Screenshots

By Jonathan Barnes, 5 years ago
Last week, we brought you the E3 trailer for 2K's XCOM, a game that at least one gaming journalist has described as "Mass Effect in the 1960s" with "X-Files" and "Super 8" mixed in. For those who are uncertain of the context, that is bold praise. As the conference ended, 2K also released nine new screenshots for the game.

If you need a bit of a refresher on the history of XCOM, I suggest checking out our previous coverage.

XCOM is set for a March 6th, 2012 release in North America and a March 9th release in Europe. Other regional release dates have not yet been disclosed (Feel free to blame the Smoking Man and Saren.).
