XCOM: Enemy Unknown 'coming soon' to Android

Google Play and Amazon App Store release teased

The mobile version of 2K's critically acclaimed RTS game XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be released for Android devices "soon".

That's according to the game's official Twitter feed, which teased in a post on Wednesday an imminent release via the Google Play and Amazon App Stores.


A touch-screen-optimized version of the game was originally released for Apple iOS devices in June 2013 priced at £13.99 / $19.99.

When the title was announced, lead designer Jake Solomon claimed the iOS port contains the "full game" including "all the tactical, strategic gameplay that you have experienced on the PC and consoles".

In our XCOM: Enemy Unknown review we called the title a "surprisingly personal turn-based masterpiece" that "harks back to the golden era of strategy games".
