Firaxis’ strategy masterpiece is making the leap to mobile platforms. The iOS version will be priced at $20 – that’s tier 20 on the App Store pricing matrix and should translate to €15.99 and £13.99.
It’s coming this Thursday, with a free patch scheduled for release later that will unlock head-to-head multiplayer. There’s no date just yet for this functionality to be added.
The iOS version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown will support GameCenter and feature iCloud integration which means that you can save the game on your iPad and resume it from your iPhone or iPod Touch.
Supported devices include the iPad 2 and up (including the Mini), iPhone 4S and higher, and iPod Touch 5th Gen. It’s claimed that this is a full XCOM experience and it seems like it could be perfect for the iPad but I’m not so sure how comfortable it will be on the smaller screens of iPhone and iPod Touch.
There’s no word on Android just yet, unfortunately.
