Yesterday, we reported that XCOM: Enemy Unknown would be making its way to iOS this summer. Lost in that article was the announcement that the Mac edition will arrive on April 25th, which publisher Feral Interactive has just made all nice and official with a press release this morning.
Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K for PC and consoles, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a re-imagining of the classic X-COM: UFO Defense, originally released in 1994. I guess U.F.O.s and dashes just aren’t that cool some 20 years later.
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.
Mac gamers will get the Elite Edition of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which includes the Slingshot and Elite Soldier Pack add-on content, as well as the Second Wave update, which includes a series of gameplay modifiers that add further depth and flexibility to the campaign.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Elite Edition for the Mac will retail in North America for $49.99, £34.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €44.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Elite Edition will also be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites worldwide.
