XCOM: Enemy Unknown hitting iOS on June 20 for $19.99

The iOS version of the highly rated XCOM: Enemy Unknown is set to hit the App Store this week on June 20. The turn-based, tactical RPG, alien-blasting extravaganza won't be coming cheap though; it's set to cost a whopping $19.99/£13.99. But, there won't be any in-app purchases, and it'll be an almost identical port of the console and Mac version of the game.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown puts you in control of a secret group put in charge of defending the Earth from an onslaught of alien nasties that have invaded. The iOS version will incorporate Game Center integration for achievements, and iCloud support for game save syncing. It will be compatible when it hits the App Store with the iPad 2 and above, iPad Mini, iPhone 4S and 5, and the 5th generation iPod touch.

It's definitely not cheap, but we're looking forward to getting hold of this one. Who's with us?

XCOM: Enemy Unknown hitting iOS on June 20 for $19.99


Can we please not say the 20 dollars for AAA console/of game is painful? It costs 40 dollars for the pc version and 30 something for the ps3/Xbox version. If anything it's too cheap. This is what is wrong with the App Store. If you want something great you have to pay a fair price for it. If App Store consumer keep this way of thinking we won't ever have great games on iOS. Peoe spend more money on dinner. For 20 dollars you get countless hours of entertainment. If you can afford to get an iPhone or iPad you can afford to pay a fair price for premium content
