    OH - MY - GOD!!!

    "The iOS and Android versions of alien extermination sim XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be getting the Enemy Within expansion pack tomorrow - but as a new standalone app, rather than an update.
    (...)
    XCOM: Enemy Within will cost £8.99 / $12.99 and is out on iOS and Android tomorrow."

    I couldn't finish XCOM EU because I've made the wrong last choices and the last level became kinda impossible. I'll delete it and finishing XCOM EW will be a matter of honor.

    I hope this is a joke.

    I finished XCOM EU in classic mode before but I'm still trying to beat classic ironman (2years trying to beat it lol). It's nearly 10pm Wednesday in my country. I hope i can get my hands on it tonight. Is it out in NZ?

    Dunno, but I would rather start a new game to get all the new upgrades and tech for my soldiers

    So, does anyone know:
    1) if this will include the whole game XCOM EU, or is it just standalone missions? and
    2) if it contains the whole XCOM EU game, what about those of us who have bought it, will we need to spend 13 more $ for the same game to get its expansion?
    I am a bit confused of what this "separate app" means.

    Enemy within is basically an expansion pack, like Diablo 3's Reaper of Souls. It's a separate app with XCOM EU + EW and not a DLC. So buying it and you'll be getting the whole shebang. In a Diablo analogy, it's like buying D3 and RoS in a single app

    I wonder if the app can use the technology behind the App Store's bundle pricing algorithm, so if the App Store detects that you already own EU, you just need to pay the $3 balance for EW.

    Where did you read that Enemy Within will include Enemy Unknown?

    It has to. Enemy within us just add on content. It's not a game on its own.

    To everyone talking about the price: paying $3 doc because you bought a game at its reduced price is ridiculous.

    That's not true. EW was released as a standalone game on consoles.

    That stand-alone title included all the content of the original, though, so just like the PC version the Enemy Within console content plugged in to the existing Enemy Unknown content and campaign.

    Since adding the Enemy Within content to Enemy Unknown is something that 2K has said is not possible on iOS due to storage constraints, it remains (a few hours) to be seen if the new game can supersede the old, like it does on Mac, PC, Xbox and Playstation.

    Random thought: XCOM on Wii U would be awesome.
