box-XCOM-rightAw, yeah. This is what I’m talking about! Fantasy Flight has announced XCOM: The Board Game. Based off the widely popular reboot of the XCOM video game franchise, the game will have you taking care of an alien threat to earth by wiping out aliens, controlling worldwide panic, and researching new technologies to further mankind’s survival.

One interesting thing to note is that the game will require a digital companion app, or use of an online tool, to play the game.

The game will include:

  • 1 Game board
  • 16 XCOM soldiers
  • 8 Interceptors
  • 24 UFOs
  • 5 Custom dice
  • More than 200 cards and tokens

XCOM will play 1-4 players in around 1-2 hours. When it arrives late this year it’ll be $59,95. Fantasy Flight will be running demos of the game during Gen Con.
