XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the popular strategy title from Firaxis and 2K, is now available to buy for iOS devices, and even has a launch trailer –
The iOS version delivers the full XCOM: Enemy Unknown experience, giving gamers the ability to defend the human race against a terrifying alien invasion anywhere they can take their iOS devices. Taking full advantage of the touch controls on the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, players can command the XCOM project, create a fully operational base, research alien technologies and engage in strategic combat, all with the touch of a finger.
“Bringing a game of XCOM: Enemy Unknown’s size, depth and quality to a mobile platform isn’t something you see often, but we’ve accomplished just that,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We’ve been very pleased with the success of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and we expect that to continue as we bring the full experience to this exciting new platform.”
XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS takes the complete XCOM experience of the console and PC version of the game and optimises it for the touch interface of iOS devices. XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS includes GameCenter support and utilises iCloud functionality so players can save games across their iOS devices. Head-to-head multiplayer will be added at a later date as a free update.
“Turn-based strategy games are a natural fit for a touch interface, and XCOM: Enemy Unknown takes full advantage of this on iOS devices,” said Jake Solomon, lead designer of XCOM: Enemy Unknown at Firaxis Games. “We’re thrilled that gamers have yet another platform to play the game on, especially one that allows XCOM: Enemy Unknown to be played anywhere, anytime.”
XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS is available now for £13.99 from the App Store on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
