XCOM: Enemy Unknown for iPad will be ‘full port of AAA game’

The only changes players should expect in the iOS game is fewer maps; a result of file size limitations on the iPad, and a revised user interface that makes sense on the iPad. Even with the reduction of map numbers, Solomon says there will still be more maps than what a player would experience in a single playthrough of the game’s PC and console versions.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based tactical role playing strategy game developed by Firaxis. It’s based on and inspired by the 1990’s classic UFO: Enemy Unknown (also called XCOM: UFO Defense). A Mac version is in the works, as well (coming from Feral Interactive this spring).
