XCOM (Series) Accessibility Report

Our accessibility experts are yet to assess XCOM. If you'd like to suggest accessibility features we should record for XCOM, let us know on Twitter or via email.

X-Com (which became XCOM) is a science fiction strategic battle game where you control units to stop an alien invasion. The long running series has come in many forms, but always has in common the finely tuned turn-based ground combat where you control a squad of soldiers to hunt the aliens.

NotesAccessibility Notes

Newer XOMX games support accessibility in the following ways:
  • Difficulty: Turn-based gameplay and save anytime to reduce fatigue. Different difficulty levels are available.
  • Reading: There is considerable reading. Subtitles accompany any spoken elements of the story.
  • Controls: Fully playable with mouse and you can remap keys.
  • Image calibration: Visual cues to highlight audible events.
  • Audio calibration: Adjust audio individually for effects, music and ambience.
