What happened to a PC exclusive? :lol: It's good that it finally comes to other platforms - as everyone needs to play X-Com 2!

Has anyone modded it, yet? I have just seen a couple of YouTube videos of the new mods - mostly for new soldier classes(much like what "The Long War" mod did for the original X-Com reboot) and I think there is a new mission called "Enemy's Nest" - which involves raiding the enemy's base or something like that.

So excited this is finally coming to consoles. Not had a PC in years as mine died and I get a laptop through work so could never justify buying a machine of my own. I remember first playing this series on the Amiga CD32 and being utterly in love with it since, the reboot on the 360 is one of my favourite games of that console gen.

Only the trailer, since it was on backwards compat and the free game on Gold I've been replaying the first XCOM Enemy unknown on classic mode with Iron Man, my good is it frustrating. Done censored all, had loads day and about lose this first game. Rookies can't hit censored and now the Muton's have started showing up 1 kill sends my entire squad into panic.

There's an XCOM sale on at the Humble Store. You can buy the XCOM 2 bundles and DLC for 40% off and the first game for a 75% discount, with a further 10% on top of that if you've still got an unused voucher from the Sonic bundle.

You'll have to hurry though, as there's only 15 hours left as of when I posted this.

There's now an official "Long War" mod for XCOM 2. It was released about a week ago. Here's a link to a site with more info :-
