Games like this make me want a gaming rig and not just a console.

Oh god yea, of course there is enough room to love both but Xcom doesn't use the same amount of strategy Civ uses.

I still want the Xcom expansion.

Hey, there's room for both, right? ;)

From doing a bit of reading round it's sounding a lot like a 'spiritual successor' (bleurgh, hate that phrase) to Alpha Centauri, or at least, as close to a sequel as we'll ever get.

Spent many hours on Alpha Centauri, and in many ways preferred it to the straight Civs. This news excites me!

Agreed.

I'd like Xcom a bit more if it wasnt a strategic game of roulette and you actually had some control over what the game threw at you.

Anyway I'm way more excited for what they can do with a brand new Civ. I dont think they've properly done the series justice since Civ 2 imo, minor improvements to the same formula since then. This seems like a total departure if you read the blurb. Still, looks like it's based on the Civ 5 engine at any rate.

I like civ but I'm not really in any rush to play a new one where as I desperately want a new xcom game.

I sold my Xbox 360 to fund my PS4, so I am stuck waiting for games to be released for it. Was really hoping this was gonna be next gen xcom.

NeoGAF seem to have accidentally leaked this - It's a spiritual successor to Alpha Centauri called Civilization Beyond Earth. http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=800661
