NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–2K
and Firaxis
Games
announced today that XCOM®
2
, the sequel to the Game of the Year* award-winning
strategy title, is now available worldwide for Windows-based PC, as well
as Mac and Linux via Feral Interactive. XCOM 2 already has
critics raving with IGN awarding it a 9.3 out of 10 and saying, “XCOM
2
is an amazing game”, along with PC Gamer writing,
“We’ll play this forever,” and awarding it a 94% out of 100%. Game
Informer Magazine
also wrote that XCOM 2 is
“one of the deepest and most rewarding strategy games on the market” and
awarded it a 9.5 out of 10.


“Firaxis is taking the XCOM franchise to a whole new level with XCOM
2
’s epic story and replayability factor, making it the most
thrilling game in the series,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K.
XCOM 2 is a worthy successor to the award-winning
XCOM: Enemy Unknown
, and is already receiving outstanding
reviews from critics.

In XCOM 2, humanity lost the war against the alien threat
that has established a new world order on Earth. XCOM, formerly a secret
paramilitary organization, is largely forgotten and must strike back
from the shadows to reclaim Earth from the aliens’ rule and free mankind
from their evil plans.

“The XCOM 2 team strived to create a sequel to XCOM:
Enemy Unknown that gamers would love and want play over and over
again,” said Jake Solomon, creative director of XCOM 2 at
Firaxis Games. “Adding in features that set it apart from previous XCOM
games was important to us, like a unique new narrative, more varied
and powerful aliens, procedurally-generated levels and modding support.
The team is hugely appreciative and humbled by the positive response so
far, and we hope that strategy and sci-fi fans will enjoy the game as
much as we enjoyed making it.”

Players who pre-order or pre-purchase XCOM 2 or the XCOM
2 Digital Deluxe Edition
will also receive the Resistance
Warrior Pack
, offering additional soldier customization options
such as bonus outfits, headgear, and custom facial war paint. The Resistance
Warrior Pack
 also includes a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new
XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks.

XCOM 2 is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and is now
available for Windows-based PC for $59.99. XCOM 2 is also
