X-Com was originally a PC strategy game if anyone remembers. Well the team at 2K Australia, the team behind Bioshock(partially) and Bioshock 2 are making a new XCOM. This iteration will be a first person shooter/strategy hybrid, and runs on the Unreal 3 engine.It looks mostly to be an FPS with some strategy sections throughout the game. Some elements from Bioshock will make it into XCOM, like taking photographs to gather evidence and research to help build better alien-based weapons.

Set in the 1950's, you will play as FBI agent William Carter, and you will be fighting an alien invasion.These don't look to be typical enemies though, since the ones I've seen are black tar looking blobs that can't be killed by simply shooting them. They must be burned.I'm sure there are plenty of other enemy varieties, but this is all they've shown.
