Sorry, have absolutely no info on that.

There has been, don't think there's anymore for the rest of today, but it does look like the juiciest info will be on tomorrow. If I'm not mistaken, should start at 16:30 CET and some more from 21:00 - 22:00 (CET). Note that times are based on active daylight savings, so adjust accordingly.
There's always some dirt to dig out

SV posted this like a week ago in another thread, but other sites are just catching up to our cat-like reflexes, so here it is again.

It could be I should drink less. Also it may have been someone else posting this. It could also be both, dammit.

EDIT: it was Thor! Phew, I can grab a beer.

He mentions playing the original and how creepy it was despite the graphical limitations of the time, and says he wants to maintain the feel/mood/tension with the whole sense of discovery and conflict combined.  Art direction plays with stereotypes, uses cliches, the Sectoid as the grey/vice versa etc, the X-Com troopers styled as action figures, the game as a whole should be something slightly different from what is normally available.
