The lights are on
Roland Rizzo has been working with the XCOM series since the beginning.
Originally in the QA department for the first X-COM title, Roland
immediately fell in love with the spooky atmosphere of the game. A large
part of that classic tone was created by the first game's composer,
John Broomhall. Some tracks have aged better than others,
but the Micropose team's work is legendary. Now Roland Rizzo is the
audio lead for XCOM: Enemy Unknown and is tasked with reimagining and
updating the aural tone of the original. Taking cues from the
first X-COM's soundtrack and alien sound design, the audio team at
Firaxis Games is creating something current yet true to the original.
Check out the video below to hear examples of the aural atmosphere being
created for XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
In addition, enjoy the two new exclusive screenshots in the media gallery below.

In love with everything I see about this remake so far. I posted a similar comment elsewhere, but I would be ecstatic if they eventually followed the first game reboot up with a Terror From The Deep expansion.
с'mon, fix the screenshots
Nice job, Hanson! I love these looks into the development of games. I especially liked the tidbit about Sectoid voices.
Wow, I've never played the original, but I want to now. Those screenshots look promising.
Looks more and more awesomer
Can't wait!! Can't wait!! Can't wait!!! :D:D:D:D:D:D

I've never played XCOM, but I like what I'm seeing so far. There seems to be a real strong effort behind it.
Wonderful video! It really looks like this remake is capturing the same feel from the original. The audio will really help drive this feeling in too! I can't wait for more info.
I am getting excited about this game. It looks great so far.
Omg thats awesome this game is really looking awesome the sound was great, but man some of the older soundtracks where incredible the old syndicate soundtrack when I downloaded it (not wars but first syndicate) the music is really really awesome.
Dont make them like they use too!
Shame that mutatan thingy is quite different even though it looked kinda funny now in the green suit when you came across them in the game it was terrifying.
everything i have read seems amazing. i love how modern gaming is giving you more choices and cant wait to get this game.
