Today, 2K Games announced that it will be bringing Firaxis Games’ XCOM: Enemy Unknown to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on October 9.  The game returns the series to the traditional turn-based action that it’s become known for while taking place in a cool virtual world and also introducing a hub where you can engineer new weapons and manage resources.

In addition to the game, 2K Games also announced a special pre-order pack called the Elite Soldier Pack.  You’ll be able to get the following with it:

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.

If you’re a PC owner, you can also get a special edition of the game for $59.99, which comes with an art book, a fold-out poster of the XCOM HQ, an Insignia patch and digital assets, including the game’s soundtrack.

You ready for an alien invasion?  We hope so.
