Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games, XCOM: Enemy Unknown offers various opportunities to engage your enemies and take them out creatively.

The system requirements essential to play the game smoothly on your computer are Windows Vista, a 2 GHz dual core processor, 20 GB free hard disk space, 2 GB RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT or ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics card.
The single-player campaign introduces you to a global view element in the game known as Geoscape. Using this, you can keep track of your resources and manage your personnel easily. As this is a strategy game you will be handling research and production of alien technology that will help you in eliminating the aliens, allocate funds to various departments, give commands to your fleet of aircrafts and intercept UFO’s and many other things.
Soldiers lose lives every day when there is a war at hand.
