Xcom: Enemy Unknown

Xcom coming to iOS

Enemy Unknown makes the leap to touchscreen.

Xcom: Enemy Unknown is being ported to iOS, with a complete port of last year's outstanding strategy game to be available to download sometime during the summer.

2K China are handling the port, but with a helping hand from Firaxis, and the new version has been in development since last year, before the original hit retail.

"The idea was to port the game fully," Solomon said to Polygon. "The one exception we made was to the number of maps in the game, but we still have all the destructible environments, there's the fog of war - this is a full AAA game we're porting. It really is XCOM."

Solomon then added: "I think that moving your soldiers feels super intuitive with touch controls. It was one of those things that was a challenge for us to figure out on consoles where you steer the cursor with the gamepad. It was actually much easier on the iPad because it mimics the PC in the sense that it's easier to steer your soldier, because all you do is look at the screen and click."
