XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Edition Detailed for PC

It seems the definitive version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown will soon arrive on PC.

If you missed out on one of the most satisfying strategy experiences of the previous generation, we've got good news.

2K Games has announced an attractive, jam-packed new version of the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It's the Complete Edition and it's headed to PC on March 4th.

The publisher revealed the contents of this package to GameSpot:

  • The main game
  • XCOM: Enemy Within
  • Elite Soldier Pack
  • Slingshot DLC
  • All Second Wave options

The reason why it's not coming to consoles is simple: This edition includes everything featured in the Commander Edition for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, which is already available. PC gamers finally get a chance to have all the great content they've been missing!

If you're unfamiliar, Enemy Unknown was a well-received blend of strategy and action, which reminded me a little of Valkyria Chronicles (only with a sci-fi atmosphere). If you haven't tried it yet and this sounds like your cup of tea, give it a whirl.

Oh, and 2K Games also announced another new bundle: It's the Civilization V Complete Edition, which features the game, expansion packs Gods & Kings and Brave New World, as well as all add-on content released to date. Strategy lovers definitely have a few great options in the next month, don't they?

I wish I could be more enthusiastic. The only strategy I've ever liked is pure turn-based (ala Final Fantasy Tactics and Disgaea).
