XCOM: Enemy Unknown makes its way to Android for $10

by John_A

2K Games has finally brought their extremely popular turn based strategy game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, to Android users. It is the present day successor to the original XCOM that I am sure many of you enjoyed growing with the original release landing back in 1994.  With a number of follow up releases MicroProsm HasBro and Infogamers. The series went offline between 2001 and re-emerged in 2012 when 2K games brought back the classic to Windows, PS3, Xbox 360, OSX and iOS.

XCOM Enemy Unknown AndroidWith a lengthy, and successful,  history over the last 20 years, it only makes sense for the current publisher, 2K Games, to bring the classic back to consumers across m,multiple platforms. Sadly it took quite a while for them to bring it to Android, but at least they did.

The whole game is centered around you as the commander who needs to take charge of an alien invasion. You will need to build up squads of soldiers, recruit and level-up, discover new weapons and tech, engage in strategic combat, build up your base and a whole lot more.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will set you back a whopping $9.99 and consume 3.6GB of space to get it installed and running. It is a pretty graphically rich title that is sure to keep you busy for a very long time, but it might not be suited for that 8GB device without some serious cleaning up first. We also see a number of comments in the Play Store that it has been crashing on the Samsung Galaxy  Note 10.1 (2014) edition.

If you are ready to fight off the alien invasion hit the button below to get to the Play Store and pick it up. I hope you have been saving those Reward Survey dollars.

Get it on Google Play
