In the past few days, 2K Games has kept adding more and more hacking elements to its “Advent” teaser site, but the enigma has already been cracked by eagle eyed Reddit users. It’s indeed a new XCOM game.
I was hoping for this to be a Bioshock game. But nonetheless, this is great news.
I MUCH prefer XCOM to be honest. Enemy Unknown was an absolute masterpiece, and this looks a lot like XCOM: Apocalypse, which I loved back in the day :D
Both Bioshock and XCOM were masterpieces but i prefer Bioshock over XCOM anyday though. I just love the lore of that game. Whats great is that both games are win/win situation because both are awesome.
I guess for me it's mostly a matter of being very attached to the Xcom franchise. I literally grew up with the first three games back in the day :D
Terror from the Deep all the way! Really all I care is that we are getting a new X-Com!
Would definitely love another turn based strategy game like Enemy Unknown, especially on consoles. I can't imagine Bioshock being as good without Irrational Games being around.
Count me on the "Glad it's XCOM instead of Bioshock" side. I loved the first Bioshock but the later ones, not so much. I know it probably won't happen but I'd love an XCOM on Vita.
Games I want to see and will never tire of: Elder Scrolls Mass Effect The Witcher X-COM Civilization Fallout Zelda Mario 3D Mario Kart Uncharted Fire Emblem Bring em on!
Love your list. I would also add to that list with Final Fantasy I through VII Secret of Mana Secret of Evermore Castlevania: SOTN Crash Bandicoot Suikoden I & II Resident Evil Baldur's Gate Don't know how you feel about those, but they would definitely be on my list. :)
super happy as i love Xcom games
Oh man, this awesome! X-Com Enemy Unknown was the sleeper hit of last gen for me. I LOVED that game. So much so that i've been wanting to play it again on my PS4. Unfortunately the only way to do that is paying for the outrageously priced PS Now, and I refuse to do that. This is some of the best news in gaming for me. Cannot wait.
X-COM :| No Bioshock then What a let down
Not at all... what a relief is more like it! Very much looking forward to a new Xcom entry.
To people that were expecting Bioshock, it might be.
I agree! :D
Hardly a letdown. To be honest, if it was a new Bioshock without the original team I would have considered that a letdown. XCOM is a great series and deserves to shine on the newer hardware.
I enjoyed Bioshock and think it's a great series, but this is far from a let down! Xcom Enemy Unknown is one of my favorites from last gen and sadly now that I moved on to PS4 I have to Xcom to play. Can't wait.
New XCOM. Thank you 2K Games. Best news of the day :)
Agreed It was so nice to get a good Xcom game again after like 20yrs of mediocre borderline bad games.
Awesome, loved what they did with xcom. Hopefully we don't have too long to wait before release.
Yay! Due to these rumors I started playing Enemy Within again. I hope the main game is like twice the length of the reboot. The original was, and still is, such a classic. Much more complex than the reboot. However, if they make the new Xcom game 1.5-2x more complex, it should rival the original in depth.
"I started playing Enemy Within again" Good luck, Commander.
2K, take my money
ah lovely :D XCOM is awesome. I'm so glad.
YAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH! Please be Terror from the Deep!!!!!!
looks more like Apocalypse to me.
I hope this new game is more mod-friendly than EU/EW was. Modders definitely need to be able to add new assets, and it would be a great move if the game included official modding tools.
I see some people excited, i personally have never played the game. Should i be excited?
You should, and if you have a chance, you should really play Xcom: Enemy unknown. It's one of the best games of the past few years.
I guess it depends on what kind of game you like, but the last gen XCOMs were outstanding turn based strategy games. I don't always get into that genre myself but I loved XCOM.
I don't care for many strategy games but XCOM is amazing. I got enemy unknown for free from ps+, but I bought enemy because I felt they deserved my money.
It's weird because the teaser doesn't seem to sound like an XCOM game. Am I missing something?
So according to butthurt fanboys... I am missing something. Too bad I'll never know
If you read the article, you'd know why you're getting disagrees.
@MysticStrummer I get the enigma, what I don't get is how this trailer/teaser is linked to the series.
HOPING that we get more then one base. Also getting some terror sites pop p like they did in the original 2. Could totally go for this game being about 2-3x longer.
Time to kill more alien scum! XCOM FTW!
Yes! Commander,we have approved a new Xcom project...
Hell yes.... Can't wait .... Please oh please god let it be Terror from the Deep Style...
hopefully this is a sequel to declassified!/s
Don't you say that. Don't you ever say that!
Your hope is disgusting.
Finally, a PS4 game where I can play real hardcore mode aside from Diablo 3. I thought the Witcher 3 might have a hardcore mode but that didn't turn out to be the case.
