The latest trailer for XCOM: Enemy Within focuses on the expansion’s story, chiefly the new threat commanders must face: EXALT, a rogue human organization that threatens the safety of the world.
The video (embedded below) shows EXALT betraying humanity, using alien technology and cybernetics to give its soldiers superhuman powers. While once tasked to defend human life at any cost, commanders are now asked to disregard that directive and takedown the traitors that comprise EXALT.
First announced during Gamescom 2013 in August, XCOM: Enemy Within is a significant expansion that will be available as a download for Windows PC (priced at $29.99), but sold as a disc-based retail release for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that contains all of the Enemy Unknown content in addition to the new expansion itself. The console versions will cost $39.99.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown launches on PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 November 12 in North America. The expansion adds new units, new mechanics, and roughly 40 new maps.
