XCOM: Enemy Unknown trailer shows casualties of war

The scene on the ground is "utter pandemonium." People are dying out there, and we still don't know what we are fighting. The new trailer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown from Firaxis shows off the need to train good soldiers to keep your team's casualties to a minimum.

You'll be able to take command of your forces on October 9 on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but keep in mind that the turn-based perspective won't be quite as riveting as the flashy action you see in the trailer. The gameplay, however, should be just as intense.
