Grenades spitting needles, snipers leaping meters into the air, punching aliens to death with your mechsuit, and other treats are shown off in a five-minute narrated gameplay trailer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown's expansion Enemy Within. Yes, it's a very scripted demo, but mechsuit.

The gameplay is accompanied by narration from lead designer Ananda Gupta, explaining exactly what we're seeing (part of what we're seeing is a man in a mechsuit punching aliens to death). Our Andrew played Enemy Within at PAX, and also noted mechsuits punching aliens.

Enemy Within is a Civilization-style expansion, building on the base game rather than adding a whole new separate campaign. The PC release will be a regular old expansion, but on consoles it'll be sold as a full game with Enemy Unknown included. It arrives on November 12.

      I am really excited for this. The new map he showed off looks great.

      have they talked about AI and whether enemies will just roam the map like they actually exist in that environment rather than just only being discovered as you advance forward? Will I ever actually encounter an alien if I spent multiple turns standing in place?
