If you missed out on one of the most satisfying strategy experiences of the previous generation, we’ve got good news.
2K Games has announced an attractive, jam-packed new version of the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It’s the Complete Edition and it’s headed to PC on March 4th.
The publisher revealed the contents of this package to GameSpot:
- The main game
- XCOM: Enemy Within
- Elite Soldier Pack
- Slingshot DLC
- All Second Wave options
The reason why it’s not coming to consoles is simple: This edition includes everything featured in the Commander Edition for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which is already available. PC gamers finally get a chance to have all the great content they’ve been missing!
If you’re unfamiliar, Enemy Unknown was a well-received blend of strategy and action, which reminded me a little of Valkyria Chronicles (only with a sci-fi atmosphere). If you haven’t tried it yet and this sounds like your cup of tea, give it a whirl.
Oh, and 2K Games also announced another new bundle: It’s the Civilization V Complete Edition, which features the game, expansion packs Gods & Kings and Brave New World, as well as all add-on content released to date. Strategy lovers definitely have a few great options in the next month, don’t they?
I wish I could be more enthusiastic. The only strategy I’ve ever liked is pure turn-based (ala Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea).
