About XCOM 2

About this game

Humanity’s last stand

Sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year, prepare to fight for the human race in the intense turn-based strategy game XCOM 2. With this Steam key, you’ll experience the awesome second installment in the XCOM franchise – set 20 years after its predecessor – where the aliens have destroyed the planet’s last line of defense, forcing the few human survivors left to band together and fight back.

LAST HOPE
Alien leaders promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order. It’s up to you and fellow soldiers to eliminate the deadly alien forces that prevail.
Take control and command the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters, and guide your strike team into conflict. Make sure that you have the tactical edge and decide how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.

VIVE LA RÉSISTANCE!
Recruit your team of soldiers from five different classes, each with its own skill tree, and command specific soldiers for your tactical plan. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols and loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts.
Look after your team by saving fallen comrades and carrying them to the extraction point, as well as rescuing VIPs.

A NEW ENEMY
Witness powerful new alien species known as Advent, the enforcers of the alien regime who offer players a distinct tactical challenge. Go up against the Advent and target the heart of the alien-controlled megacities across a virtually infinite combination of maps, missions and goals.

RESEARCH AND UPGRADE
Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new and stronger capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to coincide with your preferred tactics.

TAKE THE BATTLE ONLINE
Want to fight alongside the aliens instead of completely destroying them? Head over to the multiplayer mode, mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.

YOUR OFFICIAL XCOM 2 STEAM KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Award-nominated strategy gameplay
  • Action-packed turn-based combat
  • Create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop

Absolutely the most intriguing and fun turn-based combat! Get attached to your own soldiers and wish they were never set in combat, as you are putting them into danger. Tons of variety and customization and whatever you wish to bring at your plate with the steam workshop. Make sure you grab one of those tasty yummie super delicious Advent Burgers!

XCOM 2 is one of the best turn-based action games ever made. You can easily have more than 50 hors of fun with it. Story-wise you have to fight off an alien invasion. Worth to mention that there is a big expansion to this main game called War of the Chosen and which is sold separately.
