Building on from the classic turn based XCOM series, this modern day version will offer up turn based and real time action.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is due out on the 11th October but will you be able to play this version? Lets take a look at the XCOM Enemy Unknown system requirements...

XCOM Enemy Unknown Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista

CPU: 2 GHz Dual Core

RAM: 2GB Memory

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT / ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT or greater

DX: 9.0

HDD: 20 GB HD space

AUDIO: DirectX Compatible

OTHER: Broadband Internet connection

EXTRA: Installation will require a one-time internet connection and Steam authentication; software installations required (included with the game) include Steam Client, Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable, DirectX and Microsoft .NET 4.

XCOM Enemy Unknown Recommended System Requirements

OS: Windows 7

CPU: 2 GHz Dual Core (Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or Athlon X2 2.7 GHz)

RAM: 4GB Memory

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce 9000 series / ATI Radeon HD 3000 series or greater

DX: 9.0

 

 Now I have to admit, this game ticks quite a lot of boxes for me. I loved the originals, I like sci fi, I love pondering tactics...and so on.

How does this one fit with you guys? The requirements are light across the board so most people can play it, but will you pick it up or is it too far removed now from what made the originals great?
