Firaxis’s XCOM 2 is now available on Steam. Time to take back Earth.
The sequel takes place roughly two decades after Enemy Within when the human race surrendered to the aliens. As the launch trailer showcases, there’s been peace since then but at the cost of humanity’s freedom. X-COM isn’t down and out just yet though and you’ll begin the game fighting against impossible odds as you try to take the planet back.
XCOM 2 has already received plenty of critical acclaim for its mechanics and mission design, and it appears as though the story could be worth a run as well. The tactical strategy RPG is available for PC, Mac and Linux with more content coming via the Resistance Warrior Pack.
