Esdevium Games’ latest title transfers the video game license into cardboard form, whilst using an intuitive digital companion App to control key elements of the game. The App controls game play and prompts players to make fast, critical decisions in real time.

Ben Hogg, marketing manager, Esdevium, said: “For me, XCOM appeals to fans on three different levels. Firstly and above all, it is a fantastic strategic board game, and we saw that in the reaction from gaming journalists. Secondly, for fans of the XCOM property it is the perfect tonic, with themes from the video game. Lastly, this is one of the first board games to use a companion app as an integral part of the game play that doesn’t simply improve the overall experience, it makes it unique.”
