XCOM, the X-Files-meets-mini-wargaming tactical puzzler, is returning after years in IP limbo courtesy of developer 2K Marin--but not as you might have imagined (or hoped).
The turn-based strategy game "X-COM" has been rebooted as "XCOM," a first-person shooter. Before you balk, though, remember that 2K Marin also brought us the first-person shooter BioShock 2, one of 2010's very best.
What else do we know about it, besides its unholy removal of a dash? Very little, save that it's set in the early 1960s, and that you play as a man named William Carter, an FBI field intelligence officer whose job is to eliminate extraterrestrials--and who apparently is no relation to the William Carter who in the 1970s became the namesake for Billy Beer.
