A highly anticipated game, XCOM Enemy Unknown Elite Edition defies meaningful description — “an electrifying combination of turn-based tactics, global strategy and sophisticated role-playing” (gameplay video below the fold) — and the minimum required system specs are nothing to sneeze at either.

Feral Interactive has released XCOM Enemy Unknown Elite Edition ($49.99), a re-imagining of 1994’s original X-COM: UFO Defense.

This release includes both the Slingshot and Elite Soldier add-on packs, as well as the Second Wave update (gameplay mods).

To play it — minimum requirements are 2GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, 256MB graphics and 15GB HDD space — on a MacBook Air or Mac mini, for example, you will need a 2009 or newer model (i.e. Intel HD Graphics 3000, nVidia 9400, nVidia 320M) with at least 8 gigabytes of RAM.

Feral states that a range of relatively recent graphic solutions — ATI X1xxx series, ATI HD2xxx series, Intel GMA series, NVIDIA 7xxx series and NVIDIA 8xxx series — aren’t supported at all.

Perhaps now is the time for a new or refurbished Mac
