X-COM being re-imagined by 2K Games

Do you remember X-COM?  It was quite a popular series back in the 90’s.  You know, when you used to use DOS to run games?  For anyone who has missed the series, you’re in luck!  2K Marin has decided to re-imagine the X-COM series and create a new game for the Xbox 360 and PC!  The game will be different than its predecessors  by using a first person perspective but it will keep a strategy foundation to it.  2K Marin is the same team behind the recent popular title, Bioshock 2.

“With BioShock 2, the team at 2K Marin proved themselves as masters of first-person, suspenseful storytelling, and with XCOM they will re-imagine and expand the rich lore of this revered franchise,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Players will explore the world of XCOM from an immersive new perspective and experience firsthand the fear and tension of this gripping narrative ride.”

Exciting news for sure coming out of the 2K camp.  Let’s hope they treat this game with the classic respect that it deserves and not just another mindless FPS.  In the meantime, if you feel like taking a walk down memory lane then check out the video below.
