XEU Elerium NR.png

Elerium is a research project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

Proposal[edit | edit source]

Our initial observations of this element indicate that it is used by the aliens to generate anti-matter energy when bombarded with certain particles-providing them with a nearly inexhaustible source of power generation.

Project Report[edit | edit source]

Codename: E-115

Having fully analyzed the strange material recovered from the alien craft, it's clear this element is unlike anything found on Earth. The unusual atomic structure of this substance responds to direct bombardment from accelerated particles, resulting in an astonishing release of energy. Although the potential applications for this element are nearly unlimited, for now, our efforts are primarily focused on power generation and propulsion schemes. However, as this material does not occur naturally in our own solar system, we must carefully manage our available supply.

Dr. Vahlen's Personal Note: To think, this single element has the potential to change the entire economic structure of Earth's energy industry. If we were to discover the source of this material, our reliance on fossil fuels could disappear within a decade.
