XCOM: Enemy Unknown "Casualties of War" trailer released

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is headed for release later this Fall on October 9, 2012. We're just excited to see Firaxis get a chance to try their hand at something sort of new. It's been six years since they released anything that wasn't a Civilization title, and that was Sid Meier's Railroads! Not very outside the box. You've got to go back all the way to 2004 to Sid Meier's Pirates! to find a title even remotely removed from pure grand strategy.

Today, 2K Games released the "Casualties of War" trailer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, their upcoming strategy title which is being developed by Firaxis, the minds behind Civilization V. The trailer is one of our best looks yet at the upcoming alien invasion.
