XCOM: Enemy Unknown standalone expansion XCOM: Enemy Within out now on iOS

November 13, 2014

XCOM: Enemy Within has just been unleashed by 2K on the App Store.

XCOM: Enemy Within is an expansion to the strategy wargaming simulator XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which was released on iOS in June last year. But instead of being an in-game expansion pack, it’s available as a standalone expansion game.

XCOM: Enemy Within features the core gameplay of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, but it does so with additional content, including new soldier abilities, new weapons, new enemies, and more:

  • New Soldier Abilities: Build new base facilities to unlock unearthly new capabilities for XCOM’s soldiers.
  • New Weapons and Equipment: Give your operatives an extra tactical edge with new projects from your engineering team and the Foundry.
  • New Enemy Threats: Adopt new tactics to counter the threats from two new alien types and a deadly new organization known as EXALT.
  • New Strategic Resource: A valuable new alien resource, known as Meld, has been discovered.
  • New Story Elements: Investigate a terrifying threat in an abandoned fishing village, and defend the XCOM headquarters from alien attack in a series of new plot-driven missions.
  • New Multiplayer maps, units, and abilities: Create your custom squad from a wider array of options and dominate your opponent in intense, one-on-one, turn-based matches.
