Physical and digital blend in new XCOM board game

Fantasy Flight Games has teamed up with Firaxis Game to launch a board game based on hit video game franchise XCOM.

XCOM: The Board Game, which is due out in Q4 2014, sees players take on a series of alien attacks and the game blends physical and digital play with the use of a free app.

Players must shoot down alien UFOs, assign soldiers to key missions and research alien technology, and while the game boasts a board, cards, dice and playing pieces, it also incorporates a free app that randomly selects one of five different invasion plans.
