Today we have spotted a couple notable additions to the App Store including a new iOS XCOM title and a new freemium Call of Duty app (not to be confused with the companion Advanced Warfare offering). Both titles are now available for download on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, but beware COD: Heroes has some borderline outrageous in-app purchases attached. Head below for more details:
2K games, maker of BioShock and XCOM have released a new “expansion” for the popular XCOM: Enemy Unknown titled Enemy Within. While the company calls the game an “expansion,” the term “sequel” might be more apt for the iPhone version, which functions as a standalone app rather than an add-on to the previous game.
Enemy Within, which was released for PCs exactly one year ago this past Tuesday to high praise from players, builds on the gameplay of Enemy Unknown, but adds several features and updated mechanics, including new enemies, weapons, abilities, and even an expanded story.
XCOM: Enemy Within is available on the App Store for $12.99. In lieu of a change log, the full App Store description, including a detailed list of the new content, in included below:
ctivision has officially launched Call of Duty: Heroes, its 3D combat strategy game for the iPhone and iPad. Unlike the companion app for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare launched earlier this month, this latest offering is a full standalone game like Strike Team.
While the basic game is free to play, you might want to take note of the cost of the optional in-app purchases before you get hooked: these range from $9.99 to a frightening $99.99 …
The game is a Clash of the Clans style strategy game, but lets you take control of familiar heroes from Call of Duty console games, including those from Modern Warfare and Black Ops II.
The game is available for download on iTunes.
