XCOM 2 is a turn-based tactical strategy released as a direct sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown from 2012. The story of XCOM 2 picks up 20 years after the events in the previous game, in which we tried to repel an alien invastion.
Just as in the first game, gameplay is twofold: strategic layer is about managing the development of your base and military technologies in real time, whereas direct combat with aliens is turn-based. XCOM organization, which you become the head of, has limited resources at its disposal and has to operate in shadows. The player’s duty is to expand the resistance and let the public know the real intents of the aliens. You do this by doing special missions, in which you not only eliminate new threats, but also help up local cells of resistance.
In XCOM 2 you command a squad of soldiers representing five character classes, which can be further specialized thanks to skill trees. Grenadiers, specialists, marksmen, hunters, and psi operatives differ not only in available abilities, but also in what gear they can use. The composition of your team and their equipment depends on your choices. XCOM 2 expands on the system of procedurally generated maps (layout and enemies), which eliminates repetitiveness of locations. Moreover, combat system and commands were improved, as well as new types of rooms were added to your base expansion options.
