A new video, featuring ten minutes of XCOM 2 gameplay footage from E3 2015, has been released to the public today, showing the gaming world just how much there is to look forward to in the upcoming title.

In the footage, XCOM 2 looks polished and tight, with the same control scheme and core mechanics that gamers have come to expect from previous XCOM offerings. XCOM 2, it seems, is intent on continuing its predecessor’s tradition of giving gamers an intense thrill ride of a campaign, balanced with intuitive tactical combat.

For a fan of the genre, it’s hard not to watch the XCOM 2 gameplay footage and not be excited for the game’s release. Aliens — and shooting them in the head — will never get old, and XCOM 2 promises that in spades.
