If you’re a fan of deep and absorbing strategy titles then XCOM: Enemy Unknown is sure to be on your radar. This reimagining of the celebrated PC game from 1994 is now available in North America and will be released this Friday, October 12th, in European territories.
A demo for the game was recently released on Xbox LIVE (exclusive to Gold members), Steam and the US PlayStation Store. The sample weighs in at around 1.5 GB across all three platforms and features two levels from the singleplayer tutorial campaign. These missions serve as an introduction to the XCOM base where you’ll train your soldiers and engage in the research of alien technology, and will also guide you through the game’s combat controls and teach you effective tactics for dealing with the alien threat.
