XCOM: Enemy Within given new enemies, weapons, maps, more

Feral Interactive today announced that XCOM: Enemy Within, the expansion pack for the strategy game XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will be released for OS X on November 12 in North America and November 15 internationally. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K for PC and consoles, XCOM: Enemy Within adds a massive amount of new content to previously-purchased copies of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Unknown Elite Edition.

The new content brings new weapons and equipment, new enemies to fight, a new alien resource to gather, new maps, multiplayer enhancements, and the ability to give "gene mods" to soldiers in the player's squad to enhance combat efficiency.

System requirements have been slightly boosted with the advent of the new expansion pack. Minimum system requirements now call for a 2.0GHz Intel Mac with at least 4GB RAM, 256MB or better graphics card, and Mac OS 10.7.5 or later. The game does not support the: ATI X1xxx series, ATI HD2xxx series, Intel GMA series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and NVIDIA 8xxx series video cards. Machines equipped with the Intel HD3000, NVIDIA 9400 and NVIDIA 320M chipsets require 8GB of system RAM.

The expansion will sell for $30 from what the company calls "a variety of digital partner sites." A copy of XCOM: Enemy Unknown or XCOM: Enemy Unknown Elite Edition for Mac is required to play XCOM: Enemy Within.
