Your attention, please. Today at StrategyCore we are proud to present "Deep Rising - a tribute to X-Com", a unique digital comic featuring lavish art and accompanying original audio, all to be enjoyed entirely for free.
That's what we say. And, apparently, the good folks over at Goldhawk Interactive are of a mind to bring us back to the fray for a second time, eyeing an ambitious return in 3D for a potential Xenonauts 2.
You knew it was coming. No, not the end of all things, that's not news for us - what we have the pleasure of reporting today is a much anticipated open source remake of Mythos Games' X-COM Apocalypse, dubbed OpenApoc.
Welcome back Commander! XCOM 2, a sequel to 2012's XCOM: Enemy Unknown has just been revealed, and its future has your forces on the run, tasked with overthrowing the Advent government.
Victory or death. There is no possible middle-ground in Screwfly Studios' daring title Deadnaut, "a challenging, character-driven game of complex strategy, cunning tactics, dynamic missions and customisation".
How can it be? How can it so deceptively remain hidden behind such a plainly pretty facade, the immense layering of a title the likes of Shallow Space and all it proposes to embrace.
This has got to be done right. That's all I'm saying. If you're going to write a book on the making of a classic the likes of Sir-Tech Software's Jagged Alliance 2, then that's your mission. Mr. Darius Kazemi took the contract.
The extent of the invasion impresses. No matter where you are in the world, know this - the aliens are mercilessly coming to assail you anew by means of Fantasy Flight Games' XCOM: The Board Game.
You're shipping out, Captain. In Evil Twin Artworks' Victory at Sea you will steer your forces and keep them on course for ultimate triumph in this upcoming PC adaptation of the well-known WWII table top naval miniatures combat game.
You shall be in the thick of it. Taking command in multiple instances throughout that great conflict that became known as The Thirty Years War, which is to be the central subject of Slitherine's upcoming Pike & Shot.
The monster will be unleashed. And then nothing and nobody will stand in the way or dispute your conquests and glory. Others may dare attempt equal feat, only to be crushed by the ultimate superiority afforded you by Kerberos Productions' upcoming potential smash hit Kaiju-a-Gogo.
This might not end well. An aggressive, superiorly equipped alien enemy will unfailingly seek confrontation to expedite our complete obliteration, so if we are to stand a chance the way to go is reportedly by resorting to the Human Extinction Simulator.
There's always the other side. Two sides to every story, the other face of the coin, a shadow for every light, and so it is that we are called upon to fully embrace a different perspective in 1C Company's upcoming King's Bounty: Dark Side.
We're destined to go beyond. Past our home system and out into the stars in the now revealed new AAA offering coming from the Firaxis constellation, named Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth.
Empires will tremble. The great forces under your supervision will collide with the enemy and only the greatest of commanders shall emerge victorious in the just revealed Alea Jacta Est – Hannibal: Terror of Rome.
