The lights are on
After years of creating barbarians and Mahatma Ghandis for the Civilization series, art director Greg Foertsch was given the task of reimagining the look of X-COM. Shedding the original's Saturday-morning-graphic-novel look for one of slightly stylized "miniatures", Greg Foertsch and his team of artists have pored over the details of everything from the insectoids to the Skyranger. Check out the video below to see concept art and screens from the game and to learn more about how the new game takes advantage of an active camera.
In addition, we've got three more screenshots from the game in the media gallery below for your viewing pleasure.

Yes, yes, YES! I thought we'd never get a proper X-Com remake. Bless you Firaxis!
Just watched "The Art of XCOM" and this just looks awesome!!! loved the background music too, made me shiver and remember the nights i spent in my bedroom with the lights out playing the original. I believe Firaxis can pull this one off where other wannabes have failed completely.
The artwork look fantastic! The more I hear/see about this game, the more I love it.
I hope they follow this up with a Terror From The Deep expansion/sequel, and don't leave it hanging like they've done with Civ 5.
