Updated on April 24th, at 7:52: XCOM has landed, and Enemy Unknown is now available to download on Google Play. It will hit the Amazon Appstore at a later date.

The game requires a whopping 3.6GB of space, and will cost you £7.14 / $11.99. You'll also need a pretty up-to-date device to get it to run smoothly.

If XCOM does or doesn't work on your Android gizmo of choice, please leave a comment below to help out other gamers.



The brilliant alien eradication sim XCOM: Enemy Unknown is coming to Android, according to the game's official Twitter feed.

It will be available on Google Play and the Amazon Appstore, and is due out "soon".

If you haven't played it, the game puts you in charge of a secret military project to rid the world of an alien menace. You have to build your base, hire troops, launch satellites, and research new technology.

Then, you'll engage the bobbleheaded ETs in turn-based battles. These are all about finding good cover points and sneaking up on the enemy. But don't let anyone die, as slain team members are gone for good.

We said XCOM: Enemy Unknown "is a terrific game" in our Gold Award review of the iOS version. "It's a smart and sophisticated mix of scrappy on-the-ground skirmishes and monster-scale world diplomacy, with enough variety that it doesn't fall into tactical fatigue."

While you're waiting for this Android edition, why not get ready with some top tips for the battlefield and the base and some comparison footage of the PS3 and mobile versions?

Updated on April 23rd, at 8:30: XCOM: Enemy Unknown designer Jake Solomon and Firaxis staffer Pete Murray have tweeted that the game will be out tomorrow on April 24th.

Shortly after, the official XCOM Twitter account said the release date was posted in error. "Please stay tuned for release date details, Commander!"

Whatever the case, it sounds like the game will be available on Android sooner rather than later.
