XCOM: Enemy Unknown coming October 9, PC special edition announced

Although 2K Marin's first-person reboot of XCOM has disappeared into the ether, Firaxis' strategy game has been dated. XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be available on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on October 9th. Of course, no release date announcement is complete without mentioning pre-order bonus incentives. Pre-ordering the game from select retailers will entitle you to the "Elite Soldier Pack." This DLC add-on includes a classic X-COM soldier, inspired by the original UFO Defense. Soldiers can also be customized with a Deco pack and "complete color customization." In addition, 2K Games is offering a special edition of Enemy Unknown to PC gamers. Available exclusively at retail, the $59.99 package will include the game, a bonus art book, fold-out poster of the XCOM HQ, insignia patch, and a collection of digital bonuses, including desktop wallpaper, soundtrack, and more. The game will also be available for download--but won't come with any of these nifty bonuses.

Humanity is pretty much screwed
