XCOM Enemy Unknown

XCOM fans received more good news when Jake Solomon, XCOM: Enemy Unknown lead designer, announced at PAX East that XCOM will make it to the iPhone and iPad this summer.

This isn’t a spin-off or a game inspired by XCOM, but the same game you can play on the PC or console. The iOS version will not include the Slingshot add-on content, but it will have the Elite Solider Pack and might have the Second Wave update.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown expands on the X-COM legacy with an entirely new story, enemies and technologies to fight hostile aliens and defend Earth. In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, players oversee combat strategies and individual unit tactics, as well as base management and resource allocation while playing as the commander of a secret global military organization, XCOM. With equal emphasis on deep strategy and intense tactical combat, XCOM: Enemy Unknown allows gamers to control the fate of the human race by defending against a terrifying global alien invasion.

This is in addition to the Mac port of the Elite Edition, which contains the Slingshot and Elite Soldier Pack add-ons and the Second Wave update, coming on April 25th.
