The short gap between these two sets of logos is filled with a fight scene that tells us absolutely nothing about the game that we didn't already know.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Coming to PlayStation Plus?

blank EU PlayStation Plus members may be getting something a little more strategy-based over the coming months, maybe as soon as in the July content update. As an IP that’s spent quite a while out of the limelight, it would make sense to expose as many people to the XCOM franchise as possible before 2K start pushing The Bureau towards its August release date, and releasing Enemy Unknown through the Plus service would be a great way to accomplish that.
