The lights are on
A new trailer from 2K's XCOM reboot has been released, and it features an extraordinarily creepy vibe that washes over its suburban 1950s setting. It's notable for being the first public trailer to showcase the game's FPS gameplay, and it even demonstrates a few of its weapons. One is most definitely alien weaponry, which our unseen protagonist uses to fight back against the otherworldly black goo that's plaguing the neighborhood. Take a look at the trailer below, and keep an eye on the site during E3 for any updates regarding the game.

The art style fits the setting perfectly
I'm torn about the art style. In one regard, it looks pretty interesting, a nice change of pace from other FPS's. I like the animations and the textures on structures and things. The people look pretty awful, though, and so did some of those guns. I don't know. As a game, though, this looks pretty interesting. The story seems vague as of know, a little out there, but I'm sure 2K can pull it off. I definitely await more info on this.
What the hell just happened?
This is going to be an interesting game for sure...
It's the ring of death!!! Flee in terror!! and something about goo.
This game has a lot of promise. I am getting quite tired of traditional feel FPS games. Bioshock certainly shook things up for me, so maybe this game will too.
that actually looks cool
Classic 2K the game looks, and play are identical to Bio Shock, which is one of the best game's I have ever played... But it don't look complete Im sure their gonna polish it in true 2K style.. This will probable a great game, and scary I'm sure......
day one buy for me
This game almost seems like an homage to 1950's alien/monster movies, which is pretty cool :)
Definatly liking the art style of this game too.
Its lookin pretty badass
Never have seen anything like this.
I'm sure 2k will do a good job with this franchise. It's been a while since Iv'e played the old xcom games

Wow, that looks crazy/epic.
I never played the original but this looks pretty good. Looks very similar to Bioshock in looks but defintely seems original and I'll probably look into buying this when it comes out.
WTF! This looks amazing! Weird though, it looks like everyone is just walking around VERY slowly. Other than that though, the setting and premise look fantastic.
If the guys who made Bioshock are making it, it's bound to be good!
