GOG release: “XCOM 2”

Firaxis Games‘ and 2K Games‘ turn-based sci-fi strategy game XCOM 2 has joined the tactical series collection on GOG.

It’s been almost 2 years since I wrote about the DRM-free release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Pack, but it’s nice that titles from big publishers like 2K are finally on GOG, even if it has taken some time for XCOM 2 to make it. The sequel couldn’t have a darker setting, with Earth being ruled by aliens and the invaders getting rid of anyone opposing their new world order. So it’s up to the remaining XCOM special forces to build a resistance and ultimately destroy the threat.

This time one takes control of the Avenger, an alien supply craft that serves as XCOM’s headquarters where one can do research, development, and upgrading for weapons and armor. 5 soldier classes with their individual skill trees can be recruited to be sent on the battlefield. Despite still staying true to the turn-based tactics gameplay, the title delivers some impressive action sci-fi set-pieces thanks to its cinematic presentation. As the gameplay is open-ended, one can choose where to go next and how to tackle each mission, making for a varied experience.

XCOM 2 was originally released in February 2016 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 75% launch discount that lasts until March 30, 2020, at 1 PM UT. There are also four DLCs with special discounts, while buying the whole package results in an additional 51% off the original price.
