2K Games is continuing their last-minute publicity push for strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown with a new trailer. This particular trailer, composed completely of gameplay footage, explains that you're humanity's last hope.
XCOM puts players in charge of an elite agency trying to stop an alien invasion. Players must recruit, train and equip teams of soldiers. When the aliens attack, you have to deploy these troops and directly command them.
Over time, these soldiers will get more and more powerful. They'll recover alien technology from battles that can then be used against the invaders. The trailer shows XCOM agents equipped with jetpacks and energy weapons. It closes with one of them preparing to use a psionic attack.
Though this video is the launch trailer, the game's still a few days away. Enemy Unknown debuts in North America on the 9th and elsewhere in the world on the 12th.
