XCOM: Enemy Unknown's iOS port has been updated to include asynchronous multiplayer battles, and has had its price slashed in half through the rest of the week, publisher 2K announced today.
The game's multiplayer component lets players build a squad of soldiers and aliens to face off against friends and combatants around the world in turn-based, asynchronous bouts. Players can manage their match-ups using Game Center, where they can also view their position in a slew of new online leaderboards also added to the game in today's update.
Folks who have been hesitant to pick up the game, which carries a fairly sizable $19.99 price tag, may want to consider picking it up this week — it's on sale for $9.99 until Sunday, Oct. 13. Make sure you've got a device that can run it before you make the plunge: that includes the iPad 2, 3, 4 and mini, the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, as well as any 5th generation iPod Touch.
