In the year 3113, the earth learned the terrible truth: we are not alone. Not only is there other intelligent life in the galaxy, it’s hostile. The earth has gone on high alert, many public and private organizations have formed to combat the alien threat. All of these organizations are doing their absolute level best to secure the future of the human race. The general populace has begun referring to them collectively as Xeno Command, or XCOM. Though they all share a common enemy, that doesn’t make them allies.
Operating individually and on a shoestring budget, many of these organizations self preservation requires that they work at odds with the others of their profession, vying for resources and funding, recruits and scientists. Success often means that someone else must fail.
November 11, 3113 the earth begins to earn its freedom.
