XCOM: Enemy Unknown launch trailer depends on your leadership

XCOM: Enemy Unknown comes out next week, and its launch trailer shows off the cinematic, humans-versus-aliens action at the heart of its turn-based strategy experience.

The battle sequences don't look like the overhead views offered by typical strategy games — XCOM: Enemy Unknown puts you right in the middle of the action. For more details, read our feature on the game's visual style.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be out on Oct. 9 on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. Check out the interactive trailer to see the different ways in which a mission can play out, and then try playing a mission yourself in the demo. After all, says XCOM, you're "our last hope."
