More good news for PC gamers today as Firaxis have confirmed that the desktop version of the upcoming XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be receiving some special treatment.
Speaking with interview with PC Gamer, Firaxis Lead Designer Jake Solomon revealed that they have plans to continue their long tradition of mod support for XCOM:
“The idea is that there is the ability for modability,” said Solomon. It won’t be anything that we’re committing to for release, but it’s very very easy using Unreal titles. I write almost all my game code in the scripts, and that’s very easy to give to people.”Additionally, Solomon also confirmed that the PC would be getting its own tailored UI -- a huge relief to any PC players that might have noticed the very control-pad orientated interface seen in the game's promotional media so far.
“We have a team that’s doing the PC UI, and there are some elements where it can make sense to use the base, like when we have menus and things like that, but our tactical UI is a standalone PC tactical UI.”XCOM: Enemy Unknown is due in Spring 2012 (US Fall) on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
