2K Games has announced that their alien invasion sim, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 on October 9.
The modern “re-imagining” of X-COM: UFO Defense is in development at Firaxis Games and they plan to reward gamers who purchase Enemy Unknown early with the Elite Soldier Pack.
The Elite Soldier Pack will contain a variety of character customization tools including the Classic X-COM Soldier skin, Soldier Deco packs containing unique armor kits, and “Complete Color Customization” for all other armor kits.
If you plan to purchase Enemy Unknown for the PC, you’ll be pleased to know that 2K is putting together an exclusive Special Edition of the game that’s sure to impress anyone who bought a PC game during the 1990s. The Special Edition will include an art book; fold-out poster of the XCOM headquarters; XCOM insignia patch; and a collection of digital bonus assets such as desktop wallpaper, soundtrack, and more.
Not quite the bounty of booty that game publishers used to stuff in their PC boxes, but a pretty nice haul nonetheless.
