Feral Interactive today announced that the award-winning strategy game XCOM®: Enemy Unknown will be released for the Mac on Thursday, April 25th. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K for PC and consoles, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a re-imagining of the groundbreaking classic X-COM: UFO Defense (1994).
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 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. The game will include LAN and online multiplayer modes.
“XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Elite Edition is a wonderfully accomplished game,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Its mix of genres is perfectly balanced and the gameplay is superbly realized. Mac strategy fans won’t want to miss this experience.”
