Release Date for Xcom Enemy Unknown is Now Known
Rejoice and behold! The release date for the long-awaited (and previewed here by Svend) XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been handed down.

The 're-imagined' title (first seen in 1993) from 2k and Firaxis will be ready for you to get your lovely hands and body all over on... October 12, 2012.

Pre-order and you get the "Elite Soldier Pack". This pre-order incentive will apparently, "provide the ultimate tools for soldier customization in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, including:

"Classic X-COM Soldier: Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return in his full glory, modernized with the rest of the XCOM universe.

"Soldier Deco packs: Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.

"Complete color customization: A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad?s look."

It will also enable retailer and 2k to make inventory decisions... it might also provide marketing chaps with an idea of how much budget they'll need. Surprisingly, the more pre-orders the bigger the budget, which is a bit daft if you think about it.

Another one for October? I foresee a age of anti-social seclusion and much gaming for the end of the year!
