A legendary comeback to take earth back.



<span class="bold">X-COM Classic Bundle</span>, a pack containing five games that set the bar for both tactical and chaotic extraterrestrial warfare, is now available DRM-free on GOG.com with a 75% launch discount. Scavenging the bundle for individual parts grants you a 50% discount on each one.

Is there any gamer left on the planet still unfamiliar with the X-COM legacy? Sure, the organization that was put together when the alien threat reared its ugly head was a project largely kept secret for global security reasons, but the games chronicling its exploits made quite a splash. And for good reason.

When alien invaders do come knocking at Earth's door again, this is what every stalwart protector should have studied in order to prepare themselves for any possible scenario. It's all in here: The tactical, close-combat encounters with alien intruders coming from the far-away corners of space, forcing X-COM to build a <span class="bold">UFO Defense</span>. The extensive research on alien technology that helped scientists understand how to fight back the <span class="bold">Terror from the Deep</span> that emerged from our unexplored oceans. The deep-space fighting against the advancing alien forces that called for a highly-skilled <span class="bold">Interceptor</span>. The desperate fight of a single scientist using scavenged alien technology to clear the streets from aliens as a brutal <span class="bold">Enforcer</span>. But did we ever manage to fully cancel the <span class="bold">Apocalypse</span> and secure our little corner in the galaxy? That is yet to be determined, commander.



Fight the alien forces across five games that (re)defined entire genres in the <span class="bold">X-COM Classic Bundle</span>, DRM-free on GOG.com. The 75% bundle discount and the 50% individual discounts will last until April 5, 13:59 BST / 5:59 AM PDT / 8:59 AM EDT.

TrevorWilliams: I prefer to call it Laser Squad 3, as I followed it from its Atari ST beginnings.
Laser Squad.. lol I managed to play the first one.
Super simple, but quite fun XD

Laser Squad was one of my favourite games on the Amiga. I believe it was also inspired by the Snapshot rules for the Traveller RPG. I ran a few Traveller campaigns way back in the day and remember using this system.

Cool, that seems like Starquest's grandfather :)
I think Enforcer unjustly gets a bad rap. It can be a fantastic 'dumb fun' shooter if you disregard the X-Com branding.
I already own X-Com na Steam, but I have give up playing after 40h. (No wasn't to hard, I like hard.) The bugs won with me.
So my question: does this version work better?
So question (well, two actually) - how is Apocalypse? And do you get to upgrade your suit in Enforcer? (even if it's rudimentary - I'm not expecting Xcom levels of customization).
I would have bought the whole bundle, if only the games came with official Linux support from GOG (with WINE integration like it’s done for the Infinity Engine games)…

I agree. It's certainly no worse than Serious Sam or Powerslave for fun, mostly-mindless run-and-gun playtime.

Oh, at last!! The wait was long, but it's awesome to see the X-COM series finally released on GOG, where it rightly belongs. Wishlisted instantly; I definitely want to try the first one in the near future and then possibly the following chapters, if I am good enough...
Amazing, an awesome release. This is excellent news!
Wow, just passing to say that with these games, GOG leveled up.

Closer and Closer to perfection.

This version is probably the same version as the steam version. That said x-com is usually too easy because of the infamous difficulty reset bug.

Xcomutil fixes a lot of bugs.

Highly recommended for anyone wanting to play either ufo defense or terror from the deep.

Judas' comment on that:
What you see is what you get...

Cool beans. I've heard about these a lot, but never played them.

I would imagine it's almost identical. I'd suggest you give OpenXCOM a try.
