About XCOM: Chimera Squad

About this game

Experience the latest installment in the XCOM universe with an all-new story and turn-based tactical combat experience with your XCOM: Chimera Squad Steam PC key.

After years of alien rule, humanity won the war for Earth. But when the Overlords fled the planet, they left their former soldiers behind. Now, five years after the events of XCOM 2, humans and aliens are working together to forge a civilization of co-operation and coexistence.

Welcome to City 31, a model of peace in a post-invasion world. However, not all of Earth's inhabitants support interspecies alliance. Chimera Squad, an elite force of human and alien agents, must work together to destroy the underground threats driving the city toward chaos.

The future of City 31 depends on you.

UNIQUE HUMAN & ALIEN AGENTS
Each of the 11 agents have their own distinct personality and tactical abilities, including species-specific attacks like the Viper’s tongue pull.

Each of them is equipped with special tactical abilities and driven by a different motivation for joining Chimera Squad. Deploy targeted team members to investigate and combat the dangers that pervade the districts of City 31.

Lead Chimera Squad through a new experience that innovates on XCOM's turn-based legacy, utilizing strategy, teamwork, and new breach-and-clear gameplay to complete your mission objectives. Execute devastating combos by teaming the right agents and utilizing cooperative actions. The difference between mission success and failure can depend wholly on team composition.

RE-ENVISIONED TACTICAL COMBAT
Missions are structured as a series of discrete, explosive encounters, keeping the action intense and unpredictable. Shape the battlefield to your advantage with a new combat phase called 'Breach' that injects your squad right into action.

Strategically assign your agents to different entry points and coordinate their assault with a range of Breach-specific skills.

INTERLEAVED TURNS
An automatic initiative system slots individual agents and enemies into an alternating turn order, creating new strategic possibilities based on what unit is queued to act next—and what unit is at the greatest risk when they do.

SUSPENSEFUL STRATEGY
Outside of combat, manage the operations of a high-tech HQ, where you must prioritize competing tasks, investigations, and agent assignments in the face of a ticking clock: the constantly rising unrest in the city’s various districts, driving City 31 closer and closer to total anarchy.

YOUR OFFICIAL XCOM: CHIMERA SQUAD STEAM PC KEY GIVES YOU:

  • Latest installment in the popular turn-based strategy XCOM universe.
  • Alien and Human agents with unique personality and tactical abilities.
  • Interleaved turns and suspenseful strategy for both inside and outside of the battlefield.

"Neither a full-fledged sequel nor a cheap cash grab, XCOM: Chimera Squad is a solid spin-off with a smaller scale approach to the XCOM formula."

"Firaxis lets its hair down for a fun but flawed twist on XCOM's proven recipe of tactics and tension."

XCOM: Chimera Squad was a blast to play! It felt like XCOM-lite, but I thoroughly enjoyed that. The characters were all unique. My only complaint is how short the game was. In the end, I’d recommend it.

Great job finding an alternate way to use those cinematic elements that I enjoy. I like they way they’ve focused the storyline and made it into manageable bites. My favorite X Com so sar.

Great idea and ok execution, but falls quite short from reproducing the best moments of XCOM 2

A difficult launch with some serious bugs hampered my excitement for the title. As an XCOM (both OG and reboot) fan, I had high hopes for the game and found the whole concept fun, but the gameplay was a bit underwhelming, falling short, perhaps because of its smaller scope, of the highs of the previous entries in the franchise.

This is Not XCOM 3, Fortunately

A spinoff that takes aspects of XCOM and tries to make it into more personal, character focused experience that ultimately feels like a lesser game. Worth it for those that enjoy XCOM's combat but be warned that it can get rather repetitive.
