Something's out there
2067. The extraterrestrial combat unit is back! Taking the fight against an unpredictable enemy into the deep space region known as "the frontier". The earth's resources are now severely depleted and humanity's only hope is mining this mineral-rich area. Your task is to protect the outposts, battle the aliens for the precious raw materials and discover their true intentions. Welcome to fast-paced combat action and deep strategy!
- Battle the aliens from the cockpit of a high tech Interceptor; fighting ship-on-ship in a real-time 3-D first person environment, in dynamic missions that directly affect the final outcome of the struggle.
- Vaporise your foes with more than 20 different weapons of mass destruction; from mere lasers to base-busting, high-explosive missiles.
- Become the aggressor as new technology and better weapons are added to your arsenal and strike right at the heart of the aliens' supply lines, outposts and bases.
- Build and manage your bases and personnel, maintain your financial standing and increase X-COM's control across the combat area.
- Test yourself in the instant action Training Mode by developing your dogfighting skills, defensive manoeuvres and "hit-and-run" tactics.
- Go head-to-head in the Multiplayer Death Match to see who's the best of the best. Build your fully customized craft and battle against other X-COM aces in online tests of skill and combat prowess.
- Research captured alien weapons and technology in the hope of improving your own and discovering the reason for the ever-increasing alien activity - BEFORE IT'S TOO LATE!
