CHEATCC’S 2016 HOLIDAY BUYER’S GUIDE

XCOM 2

What happens when you lose the war and the aliens win? XCOM 2 happens! Released earlier this year, players must step up to fight back. See, 20 years after XCOM: Enemy Within, the aliens won. They set up the ADVENT Administration, pro-alien propaganda has been spread, and they've begun controlling humanity. Fortunately, XCOM breaks into a gene bank to get you, the Commander, back to lead the resistance against these otherworldly foes.

From your mobile base, the Avenger, you head to missions, create equipment, research new technologies, recruit soldiers, and build a force that can stand against the aliens. The world state influences missions, aliens are smarter than ever before, and you have to make sure you accomplish your goals before ADVENT’s Avatar Program is completed. Even after the campaign’s over, though, you can keep going with mods and custom creations from the Steam Workshop as well as go through 1v1 multiplayer matches.
