Today 2K Games announced their official release date for the upcoming iOS port of XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It seems Enemy Unknown will be hitting our tablets and phones in a mere three days, on June 20th. Enemy Unknown was one of the best games released in 2012 so it’s going to be interesting to see how highly regarded developer Firaxis executes upon this iOS version.
2K and Firaxis Games are happy to announce that the award winning XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be coming to iOS devices this Thursday, June 20th. The game will be available via the iTunes App Store for $19.99 for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS takes the complete XCOM experience of the console and PC version of the game and optimizes it for the touch interface of iOS devices. XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iOS is a universal app that includes GameCenter support and utilizes iCloud functionality so players can save games across their iOS devices. While not included at launch on June 20th, the popular head-to-head multiplayer mode in XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be added to iOS at a later date as a free update.
What does the Gaming Trend community say about this? Are you guys willing to pay $20 for a mobile version of XCOM or are you more likely to save your hard earned dollars for one of the many great games we saw at E3 this past week?
