2K Games and Firaxis Games have announced that XCOM: Enemy Within is now available in Australia and New Zealand for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. XCOM: Enemy Within improves upon the experience of XCOM: Enemy Unknown with a slew of new content, including new abilities, enemies and maps.
In XCOM: Enemy Within, players can modify their soldiers genetically to enhance their operatives’ abilities or transform their soldiers into cybernetic warriors. These new abilities and units are imperative to combat two new aliens, the Mechtoid and the Seeker. In addition to new aliens, XCOM: Enemy Within adds a new threat known as EXALT, an underground human organization set on disrupting XCOM operations and taking control of Earth. XCOM: Enemy Within also includes an array of new maps, abilities, upgrades and weapons across both single player and multiplayer.
Christoph Hartmann (President of 2K) said:
“XCOM: Enemy Within continues the tradition of robust expansion packs from Firaxis Games. With an incredible amount of new content, XCOM: Enemy Within is the definitive way to play last year’s best strategy game.”
Ananda Gupta (Lead Designer at Firaxis Games) said:
“The number one thing our fans asked for after we released XCOM: Enemy Unknown was more maps. In XCOM: Enemy Within, we’re giving players nearly 50% more maps in addition to a massive amount of other new content, providing nearly limitless replayability for XCOM commanders to enjoy.”
XCOM: Enemy Within is available for $49.95 on PC and $69.95 on PS3 and Xbox 360 as the XCOM: Enemy Within – Commander Edition, a standalone pack that expands Enemy Unknown with the new Enemy Within content.
