Firaxis Games and 2K is sharing the love all around with the news of XCOM: Enemy Unknown's launch details. Not only is the game now confirmed to ship in Australia and New Zealand on October 12, but there's also the usual special editions to get the collectors all excited.
Even better - there's an exclusive PC edition with special stuff just for us!
So, for those pre-ordering, you get the Elite Soldier Pack, which includes:
Classic X-COM Soldier: Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return in his full glory, modernized with the rest of the XCOM universe.
Soldier Deco packs: Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.
Complete color customization: A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad’s look.
And if you're a PC fan, there's an exclusive special edition which has an art book, a fold-out poster of the XCOM headquarters, an XCOM insignia patch, and digital assets such as desktop wallpaper, soundtrack and more.
It's good to be on PC.
There will of course also be standard editions for all platforms.
“XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the answer to the 15-year craving that X-COM fans have been experiencing,” said Steve Martin, president of Firaxis Games. “We wanted to find a special way to honor these die-hard fans, and the special edition and Elite Soldier Pack are just the way to do it.”
