XCOM: Enemy Unknown Invades PSN Today

Garth DeAngelis's Avatar Posted by Lead Producer on XCOM 2 at Firaxis Games

XCOM Commanders,

2K and the development team at Firaxis Games are excited to announce the release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown for PlayStation 3 on PlayStation Network in North America and Brazil on Tuesday, April 9th! We hope the PlayStation community is ready to save Earth in a way they may have never experienced before.

As a lifelong PlayStation gamer, and a huge fan of PlayStation-bred squad-based tactical games like Final Fantasy Tactics, Valkyria Chronicles, Disgaea, and Vandal Hearts, I’m proud to have something fresh and so easily accessible within Sony’s amazing game catalog. If you missed XCOM: Enemy Unknown’s launch in October, this is a heck of an opportunity to see what the fuss has been about.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown on PS3

XCOM: Enemy Unknown on PS3XCOM: Enemy Unknown on PS3

We’re humbled by the 18 Overall Game of the Year wins we’ve been awarded, but even cooler to us as game creators are the individual stories we hear from gamers regarding their play experience. In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, you’ll defend the world against a global alien onslaught, making epic decisions via your secret underground base, and then deploy your squads into heated battles against the universe’s nastiest aliens. Fear the Chyrssalid — you’ve been warned.

Who will you save Earth with? Family? Friends? Movie stars? Who will survive? And most importantly: are you good enough to win?

Feel free to reach out to the XCOM: Enemy Unknown development team via @2KGames, or leave a comment below. We’d love to hear your story.

Good luck, Commander.

I’ll add to the list of people hoping for a Vita XCom. I’d pre-order today if that helped.

X-Com on Vita would be great, but a Civilization 5+Addons* Vita port would be a dream come true.

*Disclaimer: No dumbed down Civ Rev please.

As a kid xcom destroyed me. As a 30something adult I feel like a kid playing Xcom but I also rule. :D One of my all time favorite games. Almost there for all the trophies. Just need to beat it on Ironman, an impossible mode and a couple playthroughs starting with different countries. Cannot wait to see what kind of expansion you folks have planned! Tempted to sell my physical copy just so I can play it off the HD. What the heck…..I’ll probably just keep it and buy the digital one so I can sleep with it next to me. :D FANTASTICO WORK! MAKE MORE! :D

Also, not really sure who would be on it (does 2K own the rights?) but it’s a GD CRIME that the original XCOM is not on the store. Please, please, please make it happen if this is within your power. I liked the new XCOM, but it isn’t old XCOM.

one more to the list that wants a VIta version of the game.

I heard we’re taking note of comments asking for XCOM Vita? Consider me signed up. I’d buy it day one, along with all the DLC.

I sincerely hope you make a Vita version.

It’s a great system, but the lack of any games for it makes it the most disappointing video gaming device since the Channel F. I basically spend $200+ for a paperweight that does nothing but sit and my desk and occasionally glow blue.

X-com on Vita? please please please please please

I’d totally buy a Vita version. And agreeing with Civilization. Show some Vita love!

coryyumk said:

April 9th, 4:20 pm

Figboy said:

April 9th, 4:42 pm

As a Vita owner, I’d love to see XCOM show up there at some point in the (ideally before the end of calendar year 2013*hint hint*) future!

Would absolutely love having Xcom for the VIta. Never played the Console version but would MOST DEFINITELY buy it day one for the vita.

Ricen-Beans said:

Came here to ask for a Vita version, expecting to be one of few. I’m surprised at how many people want it too lol.

Will buy day one if this comes to the Vita. I loved the demo on PS3 but unfortunately never got around to playing the full game. Only heard good things about this game.

Will wait for my 20 PSN credit and then I will jump on this so fast!!

I will dunk over shaq if you give us a vita version. It’s a promise.

Viva La Vita!

PS: I know Sony has no control over this, but I would LOVE to have the Dead Space game from iOS/Android on the Vita.

A Vita version would be awesome. Had meant to pick up the PS3 version, but keep putting it off. Would buy a Vita version right away for sure though.

I echo my support for a Vita version. So many of us adult gamers play as much or more while on the go as we do sitting at home so more great portable games are always appreciated and the Vita is an amazing gaming machine. Please consider it!

I bought the PC version at launch and I’m prepared to buy the Vita version on day 1 if it ever springs into existence. On that note, I’d buy pretty much any Firaxis strategy game for Vita; Civilization on the Vita’s touch screen would be grand.

alexsavagedx said:

April 9th, 7:58 pm

We need a Vita Version, make this happen.

Rich99 said:

April 9th, 8:47 pm

I also would love a Vita version. Would definitely rebuy it again to play on the go (with real button controls).

I’m here about the vita version :) yes do it thanks.

BigSugarFree said:

I’d like to add my support to the creation of a Vita version of this game. I’m playing it on PS3 at the moment and is an obvious fit for the Vita.

GYNGA7 said:

April 9th, 10:40 pm

What about PS Vita version?

Shadowfox85 said:

April 9th, 10:43 pm

I would so buy a Vita version if it were available. I usually prefer playing strategy games on a portable device (Why I loved playing the Disgaea games and Jeanne D’arc on the PSP). Make it happen guys! =D

Clutch_Anderson said:

ClutchAnderson said:

April 10th, 1:44 pm

MaNTsiK said:

Arfurr said:

April 10th, 5:43 pm

Flagron785 said:

April 10th, 6:14 pm

sevexpei said:

April 10th, 7:16 pm

I would certainly get this for PS Vita!

(Fan of the old X-Com games and loved the demo for Enemy Unknown on PC, but haven’t bought it yet for some reason.)

laocontico said:

April 10th, 11:07 pm

if you port this to IOS why not to vita, We want a Vita version of this game!
The Vita is just the perfect device for this game.

Trukzx said:

April 10th, 11:21 pm

I would really love for it to be ported to the VITA!

MrChilliBeer said:

April 11th, 5:46 am

I’ve sunk countless hours into the PS3 version, I’d gladly buy it for the Vita again!

mellan_Konsten said:

April 11th, 10:01 am

O…………..M……………..G this game would be the absolute BEST if it was playable on the Vita!!!!

It is this type and caliber of a game that we Vita owners want so much to see more of. I just can’t express how badtasstical it would be if we could all enjoy this game on our Vitas!!!!!

At the very VERY least the Vita AND Sony would see a definite uptake in interest if this were to happen for the Vita… which is exactly the type of exposure the Vita needs right now. People I think are starting to look its way more and more.

PLEASE, someone… make this happen…. PLEEEAAAAASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vita release would be amazing! Please make it!
