Can’t wait for the approaching release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown? Then take a look at the latest trailer which, though consisting mainly of pre-rendered footage, allows a more than a sneak peak into how the battles in Firaxis Games’ strategy reboot are shaping up.

The cinematic also hints at the soldier customisation and upgrading which, as has already been stated, is one of the new challenges facing players this time around as soldiers use gadgets to pull themselves half-way up buildings and return fire with highly advanced weaponry.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will release on 12 October 2012 for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.
