2K offering pre-order bonus for PC X-Com: Enemy Unknown

2K offering pre-order bonus for PC X-Com: Enemy Unknown

Want to buy X-Com: Enemy Unknown on your PC? You might want to do that digitally, because that will give you the Elite Soldier Pack for free. It will contain tools for further Soldier customization, translating into:

- The Classic X-COM soldier, which sees the iconic soldier from X-COM: UFO Defense return fully modernized
- Soldier Deco packs which offer aesthetic upgrades including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits, and complete colour customisation for your squad.

Purchasing the game through Valve’s Steam will also grant you access to the platform’s Steamworks features, meaning achievements, auto-updating, multiplayer matchmaking and Steam Cloud support for your saves.

If you’re not into it, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a re-imagining of the original XCOM game released in 1993, which received strong cult following. It involves aliens on Earth, and tactical battles between the humans and them. The game will be released on October 9 in North America and October 12 in Europe, on PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.

    i wonder whats the deal with the other XCOM. wonder if 2K is just gonna cancel it. this X-COM is cool and all since its a fan service but RTS’s aren’t my genre. so i’ll be skipping this one. though it should be a hit on the PC.

    Same, we haven’t heard about the other X-COM reboot in a while. It is X-Com: Fate Unknown.
