XCOM: Enemy Unknown Arrives On IOS June 20th

XCOM Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown for IOS has finally been dated for a June 20th release worldwide. The game is literally a direct port from the PC and console versions that launched just last year.

As for the pricing, it’ll cost you around £12 / $20 / €15 which is reasonable and well worth the cash. The popular turn-based tactical strategy game will also launch on the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, with cloud saves allowing gamers to pick up their game no matter what format they’re using. 2K Games are currently working on The Bureau: XCOM Declassified which will release in August of this year.

In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, players take on the role of the commander of XCOM, an international military organisation tasked with defending Earth against an alien invasion. The gameplay consists of two main components: base management and tactical combat.

Base management involves building and expanding the XCOM headquarters, researching alien technologies, managing resources, and training soldiers. Players must make strategic decisions about how to allocate resources, develop new technologies, and recruit and train soldiers with different abilities and specialties.

The core of the game lies in the turn-based tactical combat missions. Players lead a squad of customisable soldiers in battles against alien forces across various locations around the globe. These battles take place on gridded maps, and players must make strategic decisions on movement, positioning, and using cover to engage the enemy. Different soldier classes and abilities add tactical depth to the gameplay, and careful planning and decision-making are crucial for success.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown offers a high level of challenge and permadeath, where losing a soldier in battle means they are permanently lost. The game emphasises the importance of strategic thinking, resource management, and adapting to unexpected situations.

The multiplayer mode will not be included when the title is initially released, but will become available after the big launch as a completely free update for users.
