Feral Interactive says award-winning strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be released on the Mac this spring. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for PC and consoles, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a re-imagining of X-COM: UFO Defense.
Here's how the game is described: "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.
"The Mac release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the Elite Edition, and contains all previously released add-on content and updates. XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Elite Edition 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."
Pricing, system requirements, multiplayer details and a minisite dedicated to XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition for the Mac will be revealed closer to the release date. A trailer for XCOM: Enemy Unknown - Elite Edition is available now on Feral's YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/user/feralinteractive).
