XCOM: Enemy Unknown became a massive hit for Firaxis Games and 2K Games, taking the strategy we've come to know and love from prior XCOM titles and applying a new home base system and exquisite 3D graphics.  Now you can take your alien-battling ways on the road.

2K Games confirmed that XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be available this Thursday for higher-end iOS devices.  The game will cost $19.99 and feature a huge amount of the strategic combat you've come to know and love from last year's release.  Head-to-head multiplayer will also be added at a later date for no additional charge.

We're eager to see how the game adapts to touch-screen controls, as well as how many enemies we can effectively kill without losing a squad mate. We'll find out soon enough.
