XCOM: Enemy Unknown Pre-load


Hey gamers,

We can now announce that pre-loading will be available from Green Man Gaming.  Keys for all those who have pre-purchased will start going out in approximately 7 hours time from now, at 0200 UTC October 6th.  Please remain calm if you do not receive your key immediately.

To cover off the bonuses all of those who pre-purchase from Green Man Gaming will receive:

  • Elite Soldier Pack DLC, containing
    • Classic X-COM Soldier: Instantly unlock a new recruit in your barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The blonde, flattop hairstyle will return in its full glory, modernized with the rest of the XCOM universe.
    • Soldier Deco Packs: Customize your soldiers 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 provides complete customization of your squad’s appearance.
  • Civilization V for free!
    • These will be provided on the day of release for XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

Pretty awesome, right?  And if that doesn't convince you, maybe Lead Designer Jake Solomon will.
