After it was announced a few weeks ago, the new expansion to XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been garnering hype among fans. Along with new enemies to combat, XCOM: Enemy Within’s trailers emphasised upon the reverse-engineering of alien genetic enhancements and cybernetic upgrades to soldiers. Each was depicted as a major new dimension to the title, but what gained the most interest was a number of new achievements which appeared on Steam. Among those listed were mentions of XCOM base personnel in combat, suggesting the return of the much desired base defence missions where aliens dropped battleships on the organisation’s HQ. While that has not yet been confirmed, the real new enemy has been unveiled in a recent trailer: Fifth columnists.
