XCOM: Enemy Unknown, inarguably the best turn-based, squad-level strategy game on the Mac, is now available from the Steam store — with some big differences from its Mac Store sibling.

Unlike the Mac Store version, which bundles the original game along with its two small DLC packs, the Steam version lets you choose whether you want the DLC or not. That also means the Steam version is $10 cheaper, selling for $40 (with the two DLC packs at $7 and $5 each).

But the biggest draw for the Steam version is the cross-platform multiplayer, giving Mac players the ability to challenge PC opponents — something the Mac Store version doesn’t allow.
