Building on from the huge success of last year's XCOM: Enemy Unknown, this DLC expansion will offer a stack of new abilities, maps, upgrades, weapons and more to the classic XCOM formula.

XCOM: Enemy Within is due out on the 15th November but will you be able to play this version? Lets take a quick look at the XCOM Enemy Within system requirements...

A Rare Sight Indeed Now - A Fully-Fledged Expansion Pack

If you managed to get the original game running you should be pretty much bang on the money to get this expansion chugging along. Most of the system specs are relatively modest and tie in almost exactly with the base game, but for those of your aiming for the recommended settings, there has been a fair shift from dual to quad-core processors if you want to see the whites in those little blue aliens eyes.

How does this one fit with you guys? The requirements are light across the board so most people that enjoyed the the original should be able to play it fine.
