Firaxis and 2K Games have officially launched the critically acclaimed XCOM: Enemy Unknown on Mac today. Known as the Elite Edition, the Feral ported Mac version will come with the base game, the Slingshot Pack, the Elite Soldier Pack and the Second Wave update as well as some wallpapers and the soundtrack for $49.99.
The Slingshot and Elite Soldier DLC brings additional character customization as well as extra council missions and the “Shaojie Zhang” soldier. The Second Wave update introduced a host of new game modifiers that add a lot more flexibility to the experience.
Just like the game’s Windows release, the Mac version will also include the LAN and online multiplayer options. Keep your eye out for the re-reveal of the highly anticipated XCOM shooter expected to be detailed in the coming days (and iOS version of Enemy Unknown coming this summer).
