Freemium is not always a bad thing. Some gameplay mechanics works pretty well with that distribution model. I suppose turn-based tactics is one of them.

I don't really see a point in releasing an xcom clone at this point in time maybe in 2011 when there was nothing like it on the appstore it may have worked,Why would I buy a clone if I have the original.there's nothing here that looks interesting the graphics specially look outdated,low poly models,poor lightning and god awful particle effects reminiscent oflpc games from 90's era they should either update their engine or pickup cryengine or ue4 or something.If you're going to clone then do it properly atleast.

We don't know how they will apply the IAPs but I believe it will have some sort of timers and you have to wait or you have to replay the same levels over and over again to gain enough xp / better stats so that you can continue without giving real money. If it will be freemium I believe that the core gameplay will be altered due to IAPs.

XCOM is not freemium, why this has to be?? Oh well...
I don't mind freemium as long as it's an actual game and not a COC timer war.

I bet if your characters die you have to wait up or pay up for their instant recovery.

"Oh noes my sniper died! He'll be in the infirmary for 2 weeks! Good thing i have $15 to revive him."

There will be timers definitely, I think. But in metagame, not in actual missions. There were timers in XCOM for soldiers to heal, and we were waiting for them to recover after missions. These timer are fine for me. And there will be a PvP mode, where we will be able to get some resources and other things. Anyway, the game will be free to download and try, and if it will be good, there is nothing bad to wait a bit or to pay.
