X-COM series

Group Description

MicroProse's series of human "eXtraterrestrial COMbat units" fighting against alien invaders, initially in turn-based tactical squad combat on land and underwater, and eventually in other gameplay styles and environments and from other perspectives.

The last game in the series was X-COM: Enforcer in 2001. The series was revived in April 2010 when 2K Games announced a new title based on the franchise.
