    Product Description

    XCOM Enemy Unknown Game PC

    XCOM Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organisation called XCOM. As the XCOM commander, you will defend against a terrifying global alien invasion by managing resources, advancing technologies, and overseeing combat strategies and individual unit tactics.

    The original X-COM is widely regarded as one of the best games ever made and has now been re-imagined by the strategy experts at Firaxis Games. XCOM: Enemy Unknown expands on that legacy with an entirely new invasion story, enemies and technologies to fight aliens and defend Earth. You will control the fate of the human race through researching alien technologies, creating and managing a fully operational base, planning combat missions and controlling soldier movement in battle.

    • Strategy evolved: XCOM: Enemy Unknown couples tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences and on-the-ground combat
    • Strategic base: Recruit, customise and grow unique soldiers and manage your personnel. Detect and intercept the alien threat as you build and expand your XCOM headquarters
    • Tactical combat: Direct soldier squads in turn-based ground battles and deploy air units such as the Interceptor and Skyranger
    • Worldwide threat: Combat spans the globe as the XCOM team engages in over 70 unique missions, interacting and negotiating with governments around the world

    Customer Reviews

    XCOM: Enemy Unknown delivers on almost every area I was hoping for. If you played the originals (or even if you didn't), there is no turn-based strategy game that comes close to XCOM. In Enemy Unknown, all of that flavor that made the original a hit is back. Turn based squad warfare, researching and equipping dozens of pieces of gear, class promotions, character rank promotions, alien autopsies, base creation, jet fights, terrorism, abductions, etc. This game is extremely satisfying. For anyone that's played the early versions, the combat has slightly changed. Instead of using action points to duck or lay down, you now choose to hide behind environmental objects for that extra layer of defense (similar to Gears of War). You also can no longer free-aim any gun, anywhere, outside of rockets and grenades. I miss this as I used to use it to blast a hole in a building for a shortcut. Another change comes from multiple bases. You only have one now. But it makes sense after you see the dozens of buildings you'll put at that base. And you do have multiple locations for your interceptors. The voice acting and short cut scenes help make the game come to life. As does the monthly council review, to cover off on your performance. Overall this is a game that will not disappoint any fan of strategy turn based warfare. I love it. I hope a remake of Terror from the deep comes soon.
