When 2K unveiled its reimagining of X-Com, many of you despaired as the series abandoned its isometric, turn-based roots. You’ll probably be interested in this fan remake then.
Dubbed UFO: The Two Sides, it’s a remake of the original X-Com, or UFO: Enemy Unknown. That means it’s a) turn-based and b) isometric.
The developers are also promising a host of minor tweaks, including “rebalanced and reworked tactical combat” to eliminate the element of luck, a day/night cycle during missions, “reworked” air combat to allow 4-on-4 engagements, extra racial abilities and, apparently, many, many more.
But the most telling changes are that not only will you be able to play as the aliens during the campaign, but there’s even humans versus aliens multiplayer. Will the X-Com die-hards be railing against that, too, I wonder?
It’s not finished yet. The screenshot above is dated May, but the team has just this week issued a new beta build. Hit the link below to download it and find out more.
