The Humble Bundle is giving away XCOM: UFO Defense (also known as XCOM: Enemy Unknown) for just 48 hours! Yes, it’s completely FREE, if you grab it before the offer expires, so head over to the Humble Bundle now!
Free?! What’s The Catch?
It is yours to download and play, forever and ever, and you need not pay Humble Bundle a single cent.
The only catch is that you must register for a Humble Bundle account. You will be given a Steam code which must be redeemed by 10AM Pacific on Wednesday, February 15, 2017.
You will, of course, need to download and use Steam for PC to download and play it.
Other than that – there is really no catch. It’s a great deal!
XCOM: UFO Defense / Enemy Unknown
You are in control of X-COM: an organization formed by the world’s governments to fight the ever-increasing alien menace.
- Command deadly close-combat battles
Shooting down UFOs is just the beginning: you must then lead a squad of heavily-armed soldiers across different terrains as they investigate the UFO crash site. Tackle the aliens with automatic rifles, rocket launchers, and even tanks in the struggle to retrieve useful technology, weapons or life forms.
- Research and manufacture alien technologies
Successful ground assault missions will allow X-COM scientists to analyze alien items. Each new breakthrough brings you a little closer to understanding the technology and culture of the alien races. Once you have sufficient research data on the UFO’s superior weapons and crafts, you’ll be able to manufacture weapons of equal capability.
- Develop a strategy to save the Earth
You must make every crucial decision as you combat the powerful alien forces. But you’ll also need to watch the world political situation: governments may be forced into secret pacts with the aliens and then begin to reduce X-COM funding.
This isn’t the demo or trial version. This is the real deal – the FULL version of XCOM: UFO Defense. All for a princely sum of $0! 😀
