An enemy unknown. Faceless, violent. Civilian casualties mount, as it probes and pushes its way into our homes, our neighborhoods and our world.
Featuring a bold new origin story told from a first-person perspective, XCOM pits Special Agent William Carter and his team against the threat of human extinction from an insidious otherworldly force. But every enemy is an opportunity-you'll strike surgically against the alien menace, capture their technology, and, by the science of desperation, turn the invaders' weapons against them. Armed with these lethal new tools of war, you'll command their squad on XCOM's front lines: Main Street, USA.
The American Dream is crumbling all around you as the invaders corrupt the country, one town at a time. How do you stop a force that acts without conscience, a force whose sole desire is to corrupt and consume all that it touches? How do you stop an enemy with no weaknesses, an enemy that cannot be harmed by conventional technology? How will you react to the loss of your perceived reality, and the corruption of the world around you?
