XCOM: Enemy Unknown Preps For PC Pre-Orders, Shows Off New Pics and Video
On the heels of a MASSIVE showing at PAX Prime 2012, 2K Games and Firaxis Games just announced that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now available for digital pre-sale. This re-imaged version of the original title from 1993, arguably one of the best PC games ever, will offer up a few extra bonuses for a limited time from participating retailers.
If you’re one of the lucky ones to get your pre-order in on time, you are guaranteed to walk away with the Elite Soldier Pack. This will include “top-of-the-line” soldier customizations only available for a short time. Let’s take a look at the contents:
Elite Soldier Pack
• Classic X-COM Soldier: Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return fully modernized.
• Soldier Deco packs: Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.
• Complete color customization: A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad’s look.
The retail copy will carry a $49.99 price tag and of course, be powered by Steamworks. If you want to step it up a notch, you can opt for the XCOM: Enemy Unknown – Special Edition which includes a copy of the game, a fold-out poster of the XCOM headquarters, an art book, an insignia patch, and even the soundtrack (along with a $59.99 price tag).
