Welcome back, Commander. XCOM needs you to guide our operative in a series of classified operations taking place at Gamescom, Germany. We are on the brink of collapse, but new information suggests that we can regain our footing.

In order to maximise on this opportunity, we need you to guide our operative in three missions over the next three days. It is imperative that these succeed, for the good of mankind.


We will be utilising a covert streaming technology to avoid detection called Periscope. Access to this will be available via a link posted each day before the mission starts on @XCOM and Facebook.com/xcom. For maximum input, you will need a smart phone to help deliver instructions to our operative via Periscope; however these missions can also be followed directly from your PC with no extra work required from your side.


Here is a breakdown of your mission brief Commander:


The exact mission times will be revealed on each day via @XCOM and Facebook.com/xcom. Our current approximate start time for each mission is in the afternoon, local German time.


Remember Commander, each mission marks a possible victory for XCOM. If successful, this is the start to a long battle to reclaim our planet and save humanity. If we fail….do not fail.
