Introduction


XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based tactical role-playing video game, developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games. The game is a "reimagined" remake of the 1994 cult classic strategy game UFO: Enemy Unknown (also known as X-COM: UFO Defense). Set in the near future during an alien invasion of Earth, XCOM: Enemy Unknown puts you in control of an elite multinational paramilitary organization called XCOM and tasked with defending the Earth. Prior to the start of the game, a group of countries called the Council of Nations has banded together to create XCOM (short for Extraterrestrial Combat Unit), the most elite military and scientific organization in human history, tasked with defending them from the alien attack.

Also no, I couldn't think of anything better as a title.

A note on spoilers
While this isn't a plot heavy game there are still a few cool things that I'd rather get revealed by the LP. So if you know what's coming up please don't post about it.

As a rule of thumb, if you ask yourself "would this be a spoiler?" then it probably is.

Once a soldier gets promoted and has their class assigned YOU lucky people can become them! That's right, you can fight the alien menace and likely get killed due to our poor decision making abilities! If you want to be a soldier with a specific class then let us know, otherwise we'll just pick the next available grunt and slap your name on it!

Due to people and their overwhelming desire to get killed in battle we have enough soldiers for now!

Don't worry Stiggs, I think your necessary. You are clearly the most skilled of the three.

I mean, you did do the alien base. The other two haven't even done anything compared to that.


Chris please put this post in the OP because I am a shallow whore. Thanks.
