The XCOM: Enemy Within is Us — Details and Trailer
I wonder if EXALT is the XCOM universe version of the NRA?
Firaxis dropped some new details about the upcoming XCOM: Enemy Unknown expansion, Enemy Within, today, and now we know who those inner baddies are. They’re a group of humans calling themselves EXALT and they’re trying to acquire alien weapons and technology for their own purposes. Perhaps they believe it’s their constitutional right to own a plasma rifle.
Whatever the reason, EXALT is undermining XCOM’s effort to save the planet, and the problem is serious enough that the shadowy XCOM boss has put EXALT on your hit list. Just one thing: it’s not as easy to ID an EXALT soldier as it is an alien invader. Unless it’s a Thin Man. Those guys are sneaky. Point is, the bad guys could be anywhere, including that gorgeous underground base you spent so much time excavating and building. See the challenge that awaits in the trailer below:
Looks fantastic. After the Slingshot DLC brought us nothing that we actually wanted in an XCOM expansion — new units, enemies, technology, or abilities — it’s nice to know Firaxis listened and will pack it all into Enemy Within. And with an interesting storyline to boot.
Take the fight to the plasma gun-toting humans in XCOM: Enemy Within on November 12.
