XCOM: Enemy Unknown Cheats and Trainers

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Video Game Details

Genre: Turn-Based Strategy

Developed by: Firaxis Games

Published by: 2K Games

Platform(s): PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, iOS

Release date(s): October 9, 2012

Although various XCOM: Enemy Unknown trainers have been developed for those who wish to cheat the video game developed by Firaxis Games, some of them don’t work; therefore, the following guide introduces a free XCOM: Enemy Unknown trainer developed for v1.0.0.5443.

The program was added on DLH.net with the purpose of helping all XCOM: Enemy Unknown players who experience difficulties in completing the missions featured in the videogame, and it is divided in three parts.

The first part includes a series of XCOM: Enemy Unknown cheats that can be activated during a mission, while the second part contains an editor, which modifies the stats of a soldier included in the player’s team.

The final part activates an XCOM: Enemy Unknown cheat code for unlimited credits and a command that can be used to deactivate all active cheats.

Using this specific trainer, players get unlimited movement points, unlimited health for their soldiers; or they can modify a soldier’s stats such as HP (health points), will, and even the number of kills he performed. The trainer however, works only on XCOM: Enemy Unknown and can’t be used to cheat The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown is a turn-based strategy video game which incorporates some gameplay elements found in role-playing games. It is also a remake of the first X-Com video game, released in 1994, and known as UFO: Enemy Unknown, X-COM: UFO Defense, or X-COM: Enemy Unknown. Published by 2K Games, the title became available on October 9, 2012, for PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. 1

While the story is similar to the one revealed in the original game, the gameplay elements have been improved by developers, to fit the current platforms and to enhance the player’s experience. The game is divided in missions, in which the player controls a team of human soldiers fighting against the alien invasion. The missions take place on various continents and environments; but between missions, players return to their main base where they can research new weapons, hire new soldiers and improve their bases by adding new structures.

Unlike in UFO: Enemy Unknown, the player is allowed to control a single base. As in most turn-based video games, during a mission, the squad members have limited action points, which can be spent to move, take cover, provide cover fire, or attack their enemies. When all action points are spent, the turn ends, and a new turn begins but this time all actions are performed by the opposing team.

Players observe the battlefield from an isometric 3D perspective, which allows them to move the camera around and use the environment in their advantage. An interesting aspect is how a mission is generated in XCOM: Enemy Unknown. If players decide to replay a mission, they can notice that even if the map remains unchanged, the enemies will spawn in different places.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown provides a single-player and a multiplayer mode for up to 2 players. Soon after its release date, the video game received multiple acclaims and positive scores from critics and reviewers such as GameSpy (5/5), VideoGamer (9/10) and Eurogamer (9/10). 2 3
