The lights are on
The XCOM: Enemy Unknown expansion XCOM: Enemy Within adds a host of new enemies and features, including the ability to use a robotic exoskeleton and genetically modify your squad. In case you missed our Gamescom preview on the expansion, Firaxis has released a narrated demo that covers some of Enemy Within's new content.
Lead designer Ananda Gupta narrates the action, which includes a glimpse of the new mech suit in action. When outfitted with the fearsome exoskeleton, players can chip cover entirely away – at the cost of a huge amount of ammunition. Once that ammo is exhausted, units aren't worthless; the suits allow users to pack in a tremendous punch, provided they get in close enough. When range is more tactically advantageous, genetically modified characters can bound up to high places and use otherwise inaccessible sniper perches.
XCOM: Enemy Within is coming to PC as a downloadable expansion, and on consoles as part of a "Game of the year" style retail release on November 12.

Cool I was waiting for this to show some demos.
Definitely passing on this.
More XCOM is good. Very good.
Do we have an estimate of how much game time is being added?
Really wish I didn't have to buy the game again to get this. Definitely not a day one purchase now.
I hope this expansion's scope is large enough. I really wouldn't mind playing Enemy Unknown/Within for months if the story just kept going.
This is so incredibly epic looking.
Love it, looks like I'll have to do another play through on Enemy Unknown and check out this expansion.
Yeah,all looking pretty damn good,il be happy to pick this up come november.
Awesome, just awesome.
Yay!! So excited!
