Take-Two might have announced another delay for its big XCOM reboot shooter, but the other game in the franchise expected out this year is still to be expected.
XCOM: Unknown Enemy, the action-strategy hybrid, is due on Oct. 9 in the U.S., Oct. 12 everywhere else. 2K also announced via press release that pre-ordering the game will net you the “Elite Soldier Pack” of in-game stuff:
- 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.
