Shack PSA: X-COM Series Now on Steam

2K Games producer and Shack family member Jason Bergman dropped by our forums to announce that the classic 90s tactical series X-COM is now available for purchase on Valve's Steam digital distribution service.

Four games from the series, listed below, have been added to the service:

  • X-COM: UFO Defense (1993)
  • X-COM: Apocalypse (1997)
  • X-COM: Interceptor (1998)
  • X-COM: Enforcer (2001)
Each game is for sale for $4.99, or the whole set of four can be bought for $15. Following Steam tradition, there is a ten percent discount in the first week of sales. The games are compatible with Windows Vista, according to Bergman.

While the X-COM series has laid dormant for 7 years, there have been persistent rumors of a new entry from BioShock creator Ken Levine and the 2K Boston crew.

    X-COM Interceptor is probably one of the most underrated space flight sims ever. The game is pure fun. A definite purchase for me, as my original disc is long since gone. Time to whip out the fancy joystick again.

      Bah. I finished that game, but it was pretty sorry in my opinion.
