The 90s turn-based strategy game, loved by many, is making a grand return, as 2K has announced its revival, but with a twist.

XCOM will be a first-person-shooter and will be developed by “Bioshock 2” power studio 2K Marin.

It’s currently in development for Xbox 360 and PC exclusively (sorry PS3 gamers, snubbed again) and has no release date as of yet.

“With BioShock 2, the team at 2K Marin proved themselves as masters of first-person, suspenseful storytelling, and with XCOM they will re-imagine and expand the rich lore of this revered franchise,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “Players will explore the world of XCOM from an immersive new perspective and experience firsthand the fear and tension of this gripping narrative ride.”

Hold on tight, folks. As more details arise, and they most certainly will, we’ll update the page.
