Firaxis Shows Mysterious Trailer For New XCOM Title

Relentless aliens!

Firaxis has debuted a new trailer at PAX East which was non-descript but showed several elements XCOM fans would find familiar. In the trailer an unknown agent states:

Hello, Commander. The war continues at great cost. We now believe another force is against us. If not dealt with swiftly, it could destroy us.

The second sentence makes it appear to be an expansion pack. Truthfully, it sounds like an X-COM: Terror from the Deep version 2.0, but it could be some DLC maps or even a whole new title. 

With the way XCOM: Enemy Unknown ended, the door is open for a lot of possibilities. No matter what it ends up being console and PC fans alike should be happy to have any reason to go back and play what was our 2012 Game of the Year.

Please let this be a complete expansion pack.

I'm loving my first playthough. I'd really welcome a proper expansion pack too. The existing DLC seems a little lightweight and not worth buying.

I just got this game as part of the BioShock: Infinite pre-order. Wow, I can't believe I missed out last year...

I suck at this game. I am pretty much stuck halfway through my first time through and just don't have the motivation to start from scratch. The damn aliens are tough, and even though I equip my squad with all the latest expensive tech they still die too easy. My only strategy that has kind of worked is to move the entire squad in a bubble, with the main guys in the middle and the rookies on the outside to be used for cannon fodder. Seems kind of harsh. But if I break up the bubble everyone dies.

Got bored/frustrated with it. Surprised I haven't dumped it on Ebay already.
