XCOM: Enemy Unknown Becomes Known October 9th

Get it? Known! As in releases! Haha!

Anyway…2K Games announced today that they’ll be releasing their reimagination of the classic turn based strategy title, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, on October 9th, filling the void that was created with the BioShock Infinite delay. In addition to the game’s release date, we’ve received word of some pre-order bonuses! The Elite Soldier Pack DLC, for whose to reserve the game, will contain a blonde flat top recruit, inspired by the original XCOM, as well as soldier deco packs to allow players to customize the colors of their troops.

Finally, we have a developer documentary!
