XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been cleared by 2K Games and developer Firaxis Games to land on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and the PC this fall on October 9 in North America and October 12 in other territories.
Accompanying the XCOM: Enemy Unknown release date announcement is a new “Deep Dive” trailer that goes behind-the-scenes with the game’s developers, as well as the cover art for each platform. You can view all of these goodies below.
2K Games has also revealed the Elite Soldier pre-order bonus that will entitle those who pre-order the game to the following:
- 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 in his full glory, modernized with the rest of the XCOM universe.
- 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.
Since X-COM’s franchise roots are PC-based, 2K Games is releasing a “special edition” version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown exclusively for the PC platform ($59.99). This version 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.
XCOM, the first-person shooter from 2K Marin that debuted at E3 last year and left a lasting impression, is scheduled for release in fiscal 2014.
