XCOM: Steam Pyramid Scheme

Steam is presently running a dastardly scheme.  If you pre-purchase XCOM: Enemy Unknown various reward tiers are unlocked.  The more people who pre-purchase the game the greater the rewards.

That’s right, YOU could be the lucky winner, but you have to act quickly and you have to tell your friends all about it!

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.
  • 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: A Free copy of Civilization V!* If you already own a copy you can gift the new copy to a friend.

Wanna know more about the game?

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.

We be saving the world and shit
