It’s fair to say that XCOM: Enemy Unknown exceeded expectations when it launched in 2012. With its winning combination of turn-based strategy, base management and troop permadeath, Firaxis’ strategy title proved popular with both seasoned XCOM campaigners and new blood alike. Happily, 2K has decided that the best way to reward XCOM’s legion of fans is to release an expansion that integrates a host of new maps, abilities and equipment into the main campaign alongside new soldier types and the potential for additional battle strategies. Say hello to XCOM: Enemy Within and wave goodbye to your social life.

Even though XCOM: Enemy Unknown has only been out for a week, the first wave of mods are already starting to hit. Anxious PC players, filled to the brim with ideas about how to change, improve, rejig or otherwise go-to-town-on the game, have started hacking around in the executable to either unlock features the developers left out, or bring the game that little bit close to the remake they always wanted.
We’ve taken a look at the five most awesome mods to come out already, each of them reeling under hundreds or even thousands of downloads so far. Read on for all the details.
When 2K contacted us and asked us if we’d like to send five lucky games.on.net readers to the top-secret launch party for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, we said “Yes. Yes, we would.” I gotta tell you though, this thing is pretty top-secret. They won’t even tell me where it is, and I’m the one organising to send you guys there. Wherever it is. What a mystery!
