The team behind the popular XCOM mod, The Long War, has set up a development studio of its own.
Long War Studios' first title is a strategy game where players defend Earth during an alien invasion. That sounds quite familiar...
Terra Invicta is being described as more of a "grand strategy" game, which may set it apart from Firaxis' smaller-scale operation. Here's the official blurb:
"Terra Invicta is a grand strategy game in which the player leads the defense of Earth during an alien invasion.
"An alien force has arrived in the far reaches of Solar System and begun probing Earth's defenses and building an invasion fleet. The player must assemble a council of scientists, politicians, military leaders and operatives who can unite Earth's squabbling nations with the ultimate goal of taking the fight to the aliens in the high ground of outer space."
Terra Invicta will be heading to Kickstarter sometime in the near future.
