xcom2

The original XCOM was praised by many and so when the sequel arrived on PC only, there was uproar. Now though XCOM 2 is here…and we don’t need a PC to experience it!

Available right now on Xbox One, XCOM 2 brings open ended gameplay, tactical plans, plenty of challenge the the chance to head off into the sunset to engage in some full on human/alien multiplayer. It may not appeal to all, but if you liked the first game and haven’t played the sequel on PC, then you could do worse than grab it.

If you do decide you need a bit of XCOM 2 in your life, be aware that there are two versions. The Standard edition brings the base game, whilst the Digital Deluxe Edition drops in the Reinforcement Pack too. Alternatively, you can grab the add-on, or any of the pieces included in it individually.

Head on over to the Xbox One Games Store right now. If the 88/100 PC Metacritic score is anything to go by, you won’t want to miss this one.

Standard Edition – £44.99

XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year. Earth has changed and is now under alien rule. Facing impossible odds you must rebuild XCOM, and ignite a global resistance to reclaim our world and save humanity. • XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters.
