XCOM: Enemy Unknown's PC Version Is Getting Extra Special Attention

There is no way Firaxis would build the PC version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown to accommodate the console version's system of command prompts. "No, no, no. Nooo. Oh man, no," Jake Solomon, the game's lead designer told PC Gamer. "I wouldn't do that to you, are you kidding me? No."

That's good news for PC gamers, and it won't stop there. In addition to the PC version of the game getting its own user interface optimised for keyboard-and-mouse gaming, XCOM: Enemy Unknown also will be modder-friendly, though Solomon can't commit to what that means exactly right now.

"The idea is that there is the ability for modability," said Solomon. "It won't be anything that we're committing to for release, but it's very very easy using Unreal titles. I write almost all my game code in the scripts, and that's very easy to give to people."

XCOM: Enemy Unknown will support mods and have a "standalone PC tactical UI" [PC Gamer]


    Would be cool to see this on steam using steamworks for mod support like skyrim

      We live in hope!

    i cant wait for this game to come out im gonna thrash it so bad :P

    Ill believe it when i see it. Everybody always promises nowadays to give the pc version some extra attention, then the game comes out and you dont even get any fov options lol.

      Or in Mass Effect 3's case, any graphical options apart from resolution and VSYNC...

    the in-game footage looks promising.. Would be nice to see the XCom series back (and better than the subsequent games after the original)

    Looks like a shoddy, cheap game in my opinion.

      The original was no graphical prize either. It'll live or die on the gameplay.
