Firaxis Games is taking XCOM back to its old-skool RTS roots this fall with XCOM: Enemy Unknown, introducing the series in its original guise to a wider audience on consoles in the same year that 2K Marin's tactical XCOM shooter set in 50s suburbia arrives.

Putting you in command of the global anti-alien defence force, XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be taking XCOM back to the cerebral, strategy gameplay that made it such a hit back in the day, with turn-based tactical gameplay enabling you to control everything that transpires on the battlefield.

"It’s been a dream of ours to recreate X-COM with our unique creative vision. We’re huge fans of the original game and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to re-envision a game that is as beloved as X-COM," said Steve Martin, President of Firaxis Games. "We were careful to keep XCOM: Enemy Unknown true to the elements that made X-COM such a revered game while delivering an entirely new story and gameplay experience for both die-hard X-COM fans and newcomers to the franchise."

Game Informer will be running a big feature on XCOM: Enemy Unknown in its February issue, the digital version of which will be available from Janauary 10th. You can check out the February Game Informer XCOM cover below. XCOM: Enemy Unknown is slated for release in fall 2012.
