9/7/12 6:00pm
tl;dr
  • Reward 1 is a bunch of XCOM skins.
  • Reward 2 the same thing, plus TF2 items (why not?)
  • Reward 3 is everything, plus a copy of Civ V!

SHADDAP AND TAEK MAH MONIES!

Great news to all XCOM fans, Enemy Unknown is now available for pre-order on Steam. But the way the offer their pre-order bonuses work this time seems rather new. Almost Kickstarter-ish, if you ask me. Depending on how many gamers have pre-ordered the game, you get the following rewards on release date:

Reward 1

Elite Soldier Pack

The Elite Soldier Pack will provide the ultimate tools for soldier customization in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, including:

  • Classic XCOM Soldier
    Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return fully modernized.
  • Soldier Deco packs
    Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.
  • Complete color customization
    A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad’s look.
Reward 2

Everything Above, Plus:

3 Exclusive XCOM TF2 Items:

  • The Crafty Hair
    If you're ever planning on fighting aliens, this is the hair to have.
  • Area 451
    If aliens ever invaded Badlands and used their special alien powers to make all of our heads look like alien heads, this is a scientifically accurate representation of what Pyro would look like.
  • The Vigilant Pin
    This pin proudly states to all that you are at least vaguely aware of the possibility that maybe aliens exist.
Reward 3

Everything Above, Plus Civilization V!

As of today, the number of pre-orders have reached 80 percent of Reward 1. What say you guys help out? :D

XCOM is ready for release on October 11th, 2012
