XCOM 2 – system requirements released

XCOM 2 is a sequel to the highly successful 2012 game XCOM: Enemy Unknown.  It takes place 20 years after the events of Enemy Unknown,  XCOM lost the war and now the earth is ruled by aliens.

XCOM 2 is a turn based strategy (TBS) game. The player has a team of commando units at his disposal and moves them turn  by turn strategically to complete the mission which involves fighting the aliens. TBS gameplay involves combination of both – strategic and tactical planning and calculated guessing which makes the game very exciting.

XCOM 2 is developed by Firaxis Games who are masters of TBS games like legendary Civilization series. It will be published by 2K Games.

It will be available for Microsoft Windows, Mac and Linux. This is a desktop only game and hence will not have a console version.
