except that this will not be downloadable on consoles. there will be a Commander's Edition of Enemy Unknown with the Slingshot and Elite Soldier DLCs and Enemy Within. So PC/MAC gamers will get this for $30.... console gamers will get it for $60 plus the dissatisfaction of knowing that they already own Enemy Unknown and probably have Slingshot and Elite Soldier DLCs already too. As much as I loved the game, I'm not throwing my money away to purchase another copy of a game that I already own..... just for the DLC.

Look good and all but if it still got the same awful aim % mechanic it s not worth my time . Missing more then half you re shot (even when they are only 3-4 tile away from you ) is not fun to me . It would be a shame cause everything else is great about that game .

I have a love to hate relationship with this game I'll probably get the game but just the cheap deaths I always find myself being faced with just in the end just makes me not want to play it..

I just hope this actually contains a subplot/secondary campaign in order to face the new enemies and also achieve the new technology.

And i thought the game felt americanized already, now we got cowboy bs.. like punching aliens in the face.

Even the X-com FPS.. is like 1960's America kicking the crap out of aliens.... yep.. wow.

I hope the devs improve the air to air combat. That to me was the weakest part of xcom.

@Ferric24 Yeah that's the one area that, even since the original X-Com decades ago, they don't seem to put any time into.

Why do the new enemies look like the Etherals from The Bureau?

The Bureau was a disgrace to the franchise. I hope they've done this right :)

@Noclippin Hmm. And I absolutely enjoyed the game maybe because i only could run on minimum spec on my old PC. There were bugs/glitches but storyline and combat tactics were certainly worthy of my time. Reminiscence to old school X-COM - no graphics but tactics prevail.

I have X-Com as a PS+ game. Should I play it now or hold off until this expansion comes out? I mean, I have a pretty huge backlog of games as it is, so I could fill the time between now and then.

@JBStone1981 play it now because its only available for you to play regardless of if you have it on your hard drive or not while its free on PS+

@07wintert If they are really adding 47 maps, i might play xcom again. I think it currently has like a dozen maps, i couldnt play it after ending it coz the maps were same, and i knew where each enemy was by memory.

@SipahSalar @07wintert There are 66 maps in Enemy Unknown + Slingshot DLC.

What's up with all these Xcom games? Are they gonna release a new game every two months? I thought Assassins Creed and COD are burning out franchises with 1 game/ year but they are just spittin out these xcom stuff like crazy.

@StotheG The Bureau was in development for a looooong time. Basically they got sick of waiting so another dev team made XCOM Enemy Unknown. Then the Bureau finally decided it was time to come out.

Enemy Within is an expansion to Enemy Unknown so they've only released two games in the past 10 years.

@ExtremePhobia @StotheG enemy unknown is the only one worth getting, and enemy within when it releases.

Two questions:

1. Is graphics going to be good like in the trailer?

2. Can you do hand to ehh..hand combat with just your soldiers not with just the terminator

Avatar image for justinka777
justinka777

@brianit41 I believe that the graphics always looked like that, and that they did mention it as being a terminator only move (kinetic punch I think) there was no mention of a weaker version either way for any of the other classes, so no idea.

wait so is this DLC or a stand alone expansion?

Avatar image for countofhell4321

@Vambran

This is the regular game with all the old and brand new DLC content packed and will be released as retail as downloadable title as well. Consider this as a "remastered" XCOM E.U. game. Also the regular edition of this game, Enemy Unknown is also included with this.

The gameplay will be still the same. Basically Enemy Within will be still the same Enemy Unknown but with tons of added contents and a lot more options to win the game. Also more enemies as well.

@countofhell4321 @Vambran Kind of like Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen.
