Xcom 2 Demo Download

XCOM 2 is set 20 years after the events of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which according to canon ended with the Earth's surrender to the invading aliens. Humanity now lives under the oppressive control of Advent, but XCOM still exists—no longer as an elite military force, but as a band of underground resistance fighters, forced to conduct a guerrilla war against a vastly superior and heavily entrenched enemy.

Control the fate of the human race by creating and managing a fully operational base, researching alien technologies, planning combat missions, and controlling soldier movement in battle. $39.99 Download to Xbox 360. Slingshot Content Pack. 4 out of 5 stars from 382 reviews. Release date: 12/4/2012. The XCOM® 2 Collection includes the award-winning strategy game XCOM 2, four DLC packs (Resistance Warrior Pack, Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters, Shen’s Last Gift) and the War of the Chosen. Head to the Singularity Island and witness the epic fights! Become a hero and fight for honor! Dream Edge is a 5v5 Third Person Shooter. It's fast-paced, but with an incredibly deep strategy system. We've prepared LOTS of heroes and their weapons for you, bringing you a fantastic near-future battle experience! In Dream Edge, you can.

The ten-minute gameplay video released today features a four-man team on a mission to disrupt the unveiling of a giant statue commemorating the 20th anniversary of 'Unification Day.' Gameplay is similar to that of the original, intercut with brief cinematic interludes that add a little extra narrative heft. XCOM 2's new aerial drones are on full display, as are melee weapons, although I remain unconvinced that swords have any place in a proper gunfight.

The video ends on an interesting note, with 'victory' in the form of a job done, half the team dead, and the survivors hauling ass before they end up the same way. It's not exactly a fist-pumping moment of triumph, but such is the nature of resistance campaigns. (Or at least that's the lesson I learned from Red Dawn.) XCOM 2 is due out in November.

Standard-issue XCOM 2 is probably my least-favourite of the four different flavours of XCOM now available to us (i.e. including the Enemy Within and War Of The Chosen expansions), but that's a bit like saying I don't enjoy 29 degrees of heat quite as much as 26, 27 and 28 degrees. They're all great! Make it like that all the time, please. Only, y'know, without the heat-death of the planet. And, yeah, keep on releasing more XCOMs.

If you've avoided Firaxis' reimagining of The Greatest PC Game Of All Time (If You're An Old Man Like Me), XCOM 2 can be a rather full-on point of entry. On the other hand, it's currently free all weekend (and 75% off if you want to keep it forever), which is the easiest point of entry of all.

It's free to download and play from Steam until Monday March 25, and works on Windows, Mac and Linux. After that, the whole thing will lock up tighter than a feckless prime minister asked about their plan B - unless of course you pay. If you're thinking of coughing up for a time-unlimited copy, please do so before March 25, as the current 75% discount puts it at a truly bargainous £8.74/$14.99/€12.49.

Almost all the DLC's 50% off too, though to be honest the only one that's really worthy of merit is the wonderful, ridiculous War Of The Chosen expansion, now at £17.49/$19.99/€19.99. (Which still sounds like a lot for an expansion, but it is dozens, if not hundreds, of hours of heavily-remixed alien-bothering).

The Tactical Legacy Pack is the only other DLC humdinger, though sadly that's not discounted. Six quid ain't bad, though.
