XCOM 2

Firaxis Games and 2K Games have announced today that XCOM 2 will be getting a console release on September 6.

Pre-ordering XCOM 2 will unlock the Resistance Warrior Pack, which includes additional soldier customization options like bonus outfits, headgear and custom facial war paint, as well as a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks.

The Digital Deluxe Edition of XCOM 2 includes the Reinforcement Pack, a collection of three DLC packs including:

  • ANARCHY’S CHILDREN: This rebellion-themed content pack introduces more than 100 new exotic customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers. These options are purely cosmetic and do not alter the stats of a soldier. (Available at launch)
  • ALIEN HUNTERS: Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign. Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend. (Available at launch)
  • SHEN’S LAST GIFT: Introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and a new narrative-driven mission and map. (Available at launch)

Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.

Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

XCOM 2 will be released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
