Earlier this week, 2K Games and developer Firaxis further teased XCOM: Enemy Within, the first expansion for the popular turn-based strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The contend features new enemies, new weapons, and, above all, new upgrades for soldiers. The upgrades include genetically engineered bioweapon powers and full cybernetic mech suits.
Today, Firaxis has provided a full gameplay video for the new content. Enemy Within’s lead designer, Ananda Gupta, narrates the gameplay video seen below. The video begins by showing off the mech trooper, which can wreck aliens with brute force and a mini gun. The genetic powers are then revealed, including superhero-like athletic feats and psychic firewalls. Of course, enemies have gotten upgrades as well, and the video ends with a pending mech-on-mech battle.
XCOM: Enemy Within is scheduled for a November 12 release in North America, for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 consoles.
