Screenshots
XCOM: Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organization called XCOM. As the XCOM commander, you will defend against a terrifying global alien invasion by managing resources, advancing technologies, and overseeing combat strategies and individual unit tactics.

The original XCOM is widely regarded as one of the best games ever made and has now been re-imagined by the strategy experts at Firaxis Games. XCOM: Enemy Unknown will expand on that legacy with an entirely new invasion story, enemies and technologies to fight aliens and defend Earth.

You will control the fate of the human race through researching alien technologies, creating and managing a fully operational base, planning combat missions and controlling soldier movement in battle.


Key Features
  • Strategy Evolved: XCOM: Enemy Unknown couples tactical turn-based gameplay with incredible action sequences and on-the-ground combat.
  • Strategic Base: Recruit, customize and grow unique soldiers and manage your personnel. Detect and intercept the alien threat as you build and expand your XCOM headquarters.
  • Tactical Combat: Direct soldier squads in turn-based ground battles and deploy air units such as the Interceptor and Skyranger.
  • Worldwide Threat: Combat spans the globe as the XCOM team engages in over 70 unique missions, interacting and negotiating with governments around the world.
My System Specs:
- OS: OS X 10.8.2
- CPU: Core i5 2.53GHz
- RAM: 8 GB
- Video:    nVidia GT330M 256MB
- Disk Space:   12GB


Known Issues:
A bit of lag, but you can always lower the graphics settings
ATi's may suffer from artifacts. Tweak the file:
/Users/[..]/Documents/My Games/XCOM - Enemy Unknown/XComGame/Config/XComEngine.ini
to disable things like dynamic lighting / dynamic shadows / blur / distortion effects

Installation:
1. Extract the wrapper archive (double click on the .7z file)
2. Hold Fn + double click on the wrapper.
3. Click "Install Windows Software"
4. Browse to your "setup.exe" or similar
5. Complete the installation, If you get any, SKIP THE DirectX, VCRuntime or .NET Installation Prompts at the End (Select "Cancel")
i) If you don't have an option, and you are sure that the game installed DirectX, let the installation finish, and redownload the wrapper, and paste the
   game folder from Program Files in the fresh wrapper.
6. When done, you will get a prompt to choose the executable. Choose "XComGame.exe"
7. Close all windows.
8. Replace the executable with a cracked one in the wrapper. To do so:
i ) Right click on the wrapper, choose "Show Package Contents"
   ii ) Go to: drive_c/Program Files/XCOM Enemy Unknown/Binaries/Win32
  iii ) Replace the old XComGame.exe with the cracked one (Sorry, copy protection doesn't work.)
  iv ) If you got the game pre-cracked, it's obvious that you can skip this step.
10. Close all windows and play!

ATI USERS:
There is now a new wrapper specifically for ATi / AMD users to try out. It reportedly fixes the glitches while having a decent speed. This engine comes with some special settings you can change if you want to experiment with the performace. Open Wineskin, Go to advanced and run "Registry Editor".
From there, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\Direct3D
And change the value of VertexShaderConstants
I'd suggest values between 450 - 1000, but of course feel free to experiment.
The lower you go, the faster the framerate, but you'll get more graphical glitches
The higher you go, the less glitches, but slower framerate.

USERS ON pre-5xxx ATi's (Radeon HD 2600/4670/4850/4870):
It seems that these cards only support 512-1024 Uniform Components, which are not enough to run this game on Mac OS X. You can experiment with values around 240 - 256, but there is no guarantee that the game will work.

Thanks for downloading!

thanks, thanoulas! :)
so copy protection (e.g. Steam) just straight up doesn't work?
I've put my CD in, got the files moved to my Applications folder, and when I select the setup, the XCOM installer pops up. But when I accept the EULA thing, it starts to install, and says "Failed to run install script."Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Steam could work, I'm talking about disk based copy protection

Now that's weird, I didn't have any issues installing the game. You're not doing anything wrong. Do you have the 2 disk version?
What exactly did you move to the Applications folder? You're supposed to run the setup.exe file off the dvd, not copy the files from the dvd to your hard drive
I indeed have the 2 disk version. I tried running it off the DVD, but that didn't work, so I copied the files from both discs and moved them to a folder in my applications.

Ran it through the setup in my disc again, though. Still not working. It lets me select language, I hit "Install XCOM: Enemy Unknown", get EULA, and it says "Steam Setup - Installing system components.. please wait." Then I get the aforementioned error and it brings me back to the splash screen where my options are Install or Exit.
I don't really know what's going on with your disk version. Download the FLT release and install from there, that one is definitely working
Works wonderfully on intel hd 3000 integrated so far. Seems to be able to handle medium settings with only minor chugs during cutscenes and some substantial load times. Also there seems to be some mouse lag, though I don't know if that's just me using the trackpad or not.

Great, thanks for reporting this. The mouse lag is something in the game, or wine probably, I get the same lag even when getting 30-40 fps, so consider it normal
speed is fine, however there are disturbing glitches in characters displaying on ATI (4850 HD, 512 MB), on my i7 27' iMac.

ATI 5670 512 Mb, same here. I've tried to disable all sorts of things in XComEngine.ini but nothing fixed that
so the steam version is not tested,but is it going to be tested
Disregard this, aaah! Thank you very much!
Try "The Unarchiver", UnRARx, Stuffit, 7zx... It depends on what kind of archive files you have
Ah, there's about 61 xcua files, then a single .iso about 6.1 gigs in the DVD1 folder, and then there's 72 xcub files and another iso file in the DVD2 folder. Trying to use the Unarchiver - what exactly should I be doing?

This is really basic stuff, I bet, and I'm sorry!
Added an ATi specific wrapper, should fix the errors in > ATi HD5xxx
Not sure about < ATi HD4xxx, please test and report
ATI Radeon HD 5750 1024 MB OSX Mountain Lion 10.8.2 here

the ATI specific wrapper fixed the glitches, but became unplayable.  I'm talking like 0.3fps here.  Even in the main menu when the alien skips across the screen the game lags like a spastic zombie.

Tried to force xQuartz, the game started but no visual, only audio, and even then i could hear the audio skipping, like a major lag was going on.

Aside from that, great work, the game had loaded as soon as the installation was completed :)
