2K and Firaxis Games announced their turn-based tactics video game, XCOM 2 for PlayStation 4 & Xbox One, following the PC release in February 2016.
The studio & publisher have partnered with industry veterans The Workshop, now a dedicated subsidiary of Skydance Media, to bring the title to consoles and ensure that the XCOM 2 experience meets the same high standards of the beloved series.
XCOM 2, is set 20 years in the future where humanity lost the war against the alien threat and a new world order is in place. XCOM, formerly a secret paramilitary organisation, is largely forgotten and must strike back from the shadows to reclaim Earth from the aliens’ rule and free mankind from its evil plans.
“Firaxis has successfully enhanced the XCOM franchise, as XCOM 2 has earned both massive critical and fan acclaim,” said Matt Gorman, vice president of marketing for 2K.
“Many console gamers have been vocal about bringing XCOM 2 to their platforms, and now they can look forward to joining the resistance this September.”
“The incredible reception of XCOM 2 has been rewarding and humbling for the team, and we’ve known console fans have been clamoring to play the game too,” said Jake Solomon, creative director of XCOM 2 at Firaxis Games.
“As avid console players ourselves, we’re excited to work with The Workshop to bring XCOM 2 to all of our fans.”
Players who pre-order XCOM 2 will also receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, offering additional soldier customisation 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.
Additionally, players who pre-order the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will receive the XCOM 2 Reinforcement Pack* which includes all paid XCOM 2 DLC along with the base game and Resistance Warrior Pack.
