X-COM Apocalypse


There's something evil in the city tonight...

Earth has been ravaged by human excess, petty conflict and alien invasion. The world's population has been herded into huge cities, the first of which was Mega Primus.

2084: A Utopia shattered, social collapse and civil unrest reigns in Mega Primus. Fiendish aliens terrorize the city. UFOs swarm through Dimensional Gateways. The city's under siege from an unknown enemy.

Your mission, as X-COM Commander, is to combat alien aggression and uncover their deadly intentions. But Beware! Alien infiltration into the city and its politics could see you under fire from criminal gangs, religious sects, and even the police!

Alien fleets fill the skies, creatures terrorize the city, chaos reigns... Welcome to the war, welcome to the Apocalypse.


"Congratulations on your recent promotion and good luck in the upcoming battle. In the past we were invaded from other worlds but now, in 2084, the Aliens are travelling from another dimension. The means by which they achieve trans-dimensional travel is unclear, but it is apparent that the UFOs use some form of Dimensional Gateway. The gateways can appear anywhere in Mega-Primus. We would advise beginning the research of Dimension Gates immediately.

You have at your disposal the finest technology Mega-Primus has to offer to combat the Alien menace. Your Agents will be responsible for investigating any strange events that might reveal Alien activity.

The objective of these investigations is to gather as much information about the Aliens and their technology as possible. To defend Mega-Primus effectively, you will be responsible for research and development based on the results of these investigations.

X-COM must recover all Alien artifacts and technology from Alien encounters, in order to research and develop new weapons and craft. The results of your investigations will be published in the UFOpaedia, so that both you and your Agents have the most up-to-date information. Without this information we will not know of the Aliens’ intent or, more importantly, a means by which we can defeat them.

X-COM should retain a covert status as it monitors the situation in the city. Our investigation is secretly funded by the Senate and without this funding, the effectiveness and scope of operations will be severely diminished.

The success of our operation depends on your efforts. The safety of Mega-Primus is in your hands; your task is to command X-COM’s forces to defeat the Alien incursion!"
