Huge news coming out of PAX East today for strategy fans, as Joystiq reports that 2K Games have announced that XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be gracing iOS touchscreens by this summer. Check out this hands-on video where XCOM: Enemy Unknown lead designer Jake Solomon walks us through what it’s like to play the popular PC and console strategy title on an iPad.

Solomon stressed to Joystiq that the iOS version is “a straight port" of the PC and console game and that they “have not made any gameplay exceptions" in order to get the entire game on tablets and phones. Related to that, since this is the full game on iOS it will be priced accordingly, though no specifics on that were given.
