We’ve had the demo, we’ve had the previews, we’ve even had the choose your own adventure treatment, now the final pillar of the marketing fortress has toppled – the launch trailer – now we just need the tasty release date to coax XCOM out from its development cage.

Check out the trailer below.

Warning: Trailer contains mild peril.

In-engine cutscenes, perspectives that don’t appear in the actual game, character physicality that won’t feature in final release, yup, it’s a launch trailer alright. Thankfully, despite all those worries nibbling at the mind’speriphery, it is a little wonderful, isn’t it?

We only have to wait till 9 October to play it too. Though, to do so, we’ll have to tear ourselves away from Dishonored.
