@9. This list is actually pretty close to the normal release schedule for achievement lists. If you look at when the lists are announced and when the game comes out its usually between one and two months before the actual game is released. So if this comes out in October, then its only a little over a week from being 2 months away from release.

I know I shouldn't be, but I'm more pumped for this than Borderlands 2. Maybe because I played Borderlands not too long ago, but haven't played a "true" X-COM since Apocalypse.

Looks like a standard list, beat this difficulty, kill this many, etc. Still excited for the game though.

I am completely elated right now. I cannot believe, not one, but two XCOM games. One a FPS much like the last (cancelled) XCOM game to come out and a reimagining of the original strategy RPG too? I am definitely getting both games. Wootness, great year! Well, two years seeing as XCOM hopefully comes out next year.

I do like the list alot the question rises how hard that hardest difficulty will be and how hard it will be to get the "Lone wolf" achievement. But i don,t care that much if this game can pull it off to be just a fun and great to be played as the old xcom game then they def have a solid hit on their hands def a buy for me!

playing the PC original the day it came out with my dad was one of the best gaming moments of my childhood. i can still remember our first mission in a rural cornfield at night, soldiers going down left and right from the darkness... classic game! can't wait to try this one.

Forgive my ignorance; but was this the FPS that had 50s era detectives shooting black goo? I didn't play the original and haven't been following this/the aforementioned FPS, so I may be way off.

@ # 27 - Can you point to the article you read that said Enemy Unknown had ANY FPS elements to it? RTS yes, but there is no FPS part to this game. Are you thinking of the straight up XCOM game that is a FPS? And PS2 graphics? Really? Either you're just trolling, talking about the wrong game or have no idea what it is you're looking at. I'm sorry but if you played the original and know anything about this games development process, especially with Firaxis making it along side with help from the great Sid Meiers I have nothing but the highest of hopes for this...

@#28: No, YOU clearly do not know anything about this game. Watch this demo from Comic-con:

This is clearly a RTS/Shooter hybrid, and one that looks awful.

Also, did I ever say anything about the XCOM fanbase? I don't think I did. All I said was that this game looks terrible and will sell accordingly. Mmmkay?

I just watched that video. I dont see any Real Time Strategy or First Person Shooting (you DO know what RTS/FPS stand for, do you not?). I see turn based strategy. I dont see any shooting from a first person perspective, or even third person shooting beyond picking a target based on action points/whatever they're using to determine the limit of your turn.

Seriously, what drugs are you smoking that you would post a video that counters everything you're saying?

@32 It is not a RTS nor will it play like it. It has some RTS elements that will be mixed in with Turn Based Strategy combat. It's the same thing as a FPS shooter borrowing some RPG elements. That doesn't make the FPS and RPG.

The reason I mentioned the XCOM fanbase was because that is who will be buying the game. People who want this type of game will buy it, looks don't mean anything except people like you, and that's not a majority of the people that are in to these types of games.

@37 That's like saying Borderlands is an RPG because you can level your character up and use perks. Do you consider Borderlands an RPG or a FPS? Borderlands plays like a FPS to me. This XCOM will be turn based strategy with some real time strategy elements, that doesn't make it a RTS game. Halo:Wars is a RTS game and this game won't be playing like that.

I understand you think the game looks terrible, that's fine to each their own on what they like, but that doesn't mean this will sale bad because you think it looks terrible. I think a lot of games look terrible and most of them end up selling well enough to get a sequel.

As a full-price retail game, especially in Q4, this will be nothing but a failure, regardless of quality. I'm actually quite shocked that's the direction 2K have gone, had been thinking it was an XBLA title. It would have stood a much better chance of success as a download.

Expect the announcement that the FPS has been cancelled due to lack of interest in the brand in early 2013. I hope I'm wrong.

@41 There is no point condeming a game from trailers, you get nothing from trailers apart from 5-10 mins of some other dude playing his way or scripted stuff that is nothing like the game.

What i see is a X-com game that is the closest thing to enemy unknown, since terror from the deep. By all means slate the game if you want but play it first before you do because honestly how many games have we all played that looked awesome in trailers but were fucking terrible when it came to playing it.

I'm completely surprised at the complete lack of support this game is getting from so many people. For this style of game you can't find anything like it on the consoles. I figured people would be ready for something different. *sigh* I guess its true, if its not Call of Duty, Gears of War or Uncharted people just are not going to roll the dice on it. You can blame developers all you want for the lack of ingenuity in games but it really does boil down to the consumer. If you're not going to buy this because you have no idea what you're getting into and refuse to try anything new we'll just continue to see the same old rehashed crap we have already. I really think this game would really help its cause with a demo but I haven't heard if one is coming.

Thought this was PC exclusive until, well, today. I'd like to see how they execute the controls for the consoles.

#43 This game is mainly marketed to those who played the originals in the mid 90s (which is why console release confuses me), while the elusive XCOM FPS is attempting to hit the mainstream

I think its a good move to bring this to consoles aswell, there plenty if strategy games out there for the PC and not to mention realy good ones, but on consoles there isn,t much realy, so i,m happy to see there is finaly a game that not just looks good but also has potential to be good. i know it not may be up to everyones sleeve these kinda games, but its def more fun one,s u get further into it.

"because honestly how many games have we all played that looked awesome in trailers but were fucking terrible when it came to playing it. "

Deadlight. Absolute piece of shit. Promoted to be like Shadow Complex, turned out to be like Limbo with all the art stripped out of it. With pretentious names like "shadows' instead of zombies to act like it's superior to other zombie fare. Super excited for this, but definitely will try the demo first after Deadlight disappointed so bad.

I pre-ordered this today. I felt like a kid at Christmas. I loved the PC games when I was a kid. On a slightly differnet note; are the the videos that look like it's a FPS just the videos that run when you make a great shot?

All I can do is laugh at the people saying this game will be crap.

I can understand if this style of game is not everyones cup of tea, but I seriously think you are underestimating not only the dedicated fanbase that have been playing xcom for years, but also underestimating the people that have been waiting for a game like this on xbox 360 for many many years.

I highly doubt that this game will sell anywhere near the big titles like CoD etc., but I for one welcome innovation in games, not the same old recycled garbage that we see every year. I could go on for hours about this, but what is the point?

The only thing I really need to add is that I personally will be happy that this game will be played by true gamers, whilst all the cool kids are playing crap like CoD with their cool friends, complaing about "noobs" (which was a phrase invented on, guess where? PC), and getting all excited when they "pwn" someone (guess what kids? PC again!).

I have been waiting for a reboot of the original Xcom for years! With Firaxis behind this and die hard Xcom fans on the dev team this game is going to be a runner for GOTY. However, I don't expect the ADD kids and COD lovers to appreciate this game... their loss.
