More platforms coming soon. For those making the ports, don’t forget to include the extra translations with your release. There’s also a Source Tarball available with it all included.

For those upgrading, it’s recommended you uninstall any old versions first. 0.9 saves should still work fine though.

Special thanks to every single one of you that has helped make this happen. Yes, even you. And you. Not you though. Oh what the hell, it’s a special day, you’re all thanked.

Shout out to Xenonauts for also releasing 1.0 recently. It’s been a good time for X-COM fans.

Edit: For those that are having trouble downloading, we have added some mirrors, so try again if the current mirror is not working.

    Great job supsuper and also great feature trailer video! It has been an honour to have been part of something and now seeing it actually get to v1.0 πŸ™‚

    this is super cool! This will ensure this piece of video game history will live on into computer-eternity and will provide fun for the generations.

    Thanks and sorry for all the bug reports!

    Awesome job! I couldn’t be happier. Already started up an ironman game. Flight paths look beautiful and I love the memorial.

    Thanks for all the work you guys put into this.

    This is great. Only thing is every download I try seems to be corrupt. The windows installer gets me the corrupt zip (and it also doesn’t work if I delete and the 64-bit zip is also corrupt. I’ve attempted download with both Firefox and Chrome.

    @Daiky: We couldn’t have done it without you! You should hang out on IRC or something so we can get the whole crew together and celebrate (virtually anyways ;))

    *sigh* I’ve cleared my browser cache, flushed my DNS cache, AND tried downloading from a proxy. Each time results in a corrupt, unopenable zip. D:

    Thanks. I finally got a working download just before you posted that. Not sure what’s going on with my computer but downloading from my husband’s computer worked just fine (other than connection being reset a couple of times, but that may be from busy servers). Oh well, now I get to play! Thanks again! πŸ˜€

    I noticed that with both the installer and zip files from the dropbox downloads that it places every file where you directed them except for Openxcom.exe.Or to be more precise,they place the exe file till it completes all the other files then it randomly disappears.

    Mystery solved. My virus scanner (Avast) was also blocking it (only from the links though). Weirdly the file would stay but it was corrupt. I keep Avast in silent mode so I had no clue but K-Bone’s problem made me think to try it with silent mode off. Download finishes and “suspicious item” pop-up appears.

    The really weird thing is my husband’s computer ALSO has Avast yet I was able to download over there. O_o

    oddly, Avast! is saying that the .exe is a virus and noticed that others with Avast! are having similar problems, any ideas on how to make avast not flip out with this? (aside from adding it as an exception that is)

    Great work guys! You’re truly doing video games a great service. I can’t wait to see where you go from here (TFTD? pretty please?)

  13. Deeveo

    Atleast the x64 7zip package is missing libstdc++-6.dll from the bundle. Got a lot of errors when starting. I had it from other program and copied to openxcom folder and am good to go. Otherwise great work on the release =)

  14. Aldorn

    A great day for a great game, thanks to a great team that made a great job.
    All of this could be summed up in one word : Great !

    Bravo everyone for your hard work in reviving X-COM! The trailer was so awesome, it really shows all the great quality work put into the game!

    Anyways, I’ll be back when I get bored of Xenonauts.

    Peace all, Jim

    Been following the OpenXcom project since what must have been nearly the beginning. It’s unbelievable that you guys have made it this far considering the breadth of this project. And best of all, the experience is better than ever. The endless list of game play tweaks and interface improvements makes all the difference. Not to mention the flexibility of the ruleset system and the fine mods already (!) emerging from the community.

    I’m loving 100% of this. A+ for effort!



    Great work team!


    Good job team!


    Great work team!


    Three cheers for all!



    Good work team!


    Great job team!
