The upcoming XCOM: Enemy Unknown re-imagining will include a one-on-one deathmatch multiplayer mode, publisher 2K Games has announced.

This marks the first time deathmatch has been included in turn-based strategy versions of the cult franchise.

Squads of aliens or humans will be built by each player, each with fully customisable units and inventories.

Once on the battlefield, players will have 90 seconds to make their move before their turn is over.

"Throughout the history of the XCOM series, players have acted as the world’s last hope against the alien invasion," said lead designer Jake Solomon.

"With the multiplayer mode in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, gamers can finally find out what it's like to command alien units and unleash extra-terrestrial destruction on planet Earth or defend it with a squad of XCOM soldiers and alien allies."

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will release for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC on October 12.
