Strategy game fans got some great news today with the announcement that XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming to Mac (can we please call it “OS XCOM” now?) this spring. The highly rated game from Civilization developer Firaxis is being ported to OS X by Feral Interactive from last October’s PC release. Dubbed the Elite Edition, the Mac version will include three DLC add-ons: Slingshot, Elite Soldier and Second Wave. Pricing and an exact release date will be confirmed closer to launch.
A reboot of the classic X-COM: UFO Defense, which was released in 1994 by MicroProse, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based title that sees players commanding a squad of elite soldiers in combat against extraterrestrial threats. The game also includes a base building element where players expand their secret XCOM headquarters, research alien technology and train their forces before sending them into battle.
