Odd it's PC only but not surprising. I remember they complained about restrictions on the consoles for Xcom!

Pre-release gameplay. New aliens, new gameplay mechanics, new class. 2 early missions played by Quill18, plus showing some soldier customisation.

Quill18 now has his hands on the pre-release build and has started a playthrough (without cut-scenes)

It is a 'must buy' for me - but not at its current price point. I am not sure if I will enjoy so many timed missions in the game.

Maybe will play in 12 months.

ditto, i have yet to play xcom enemy unknown and since this is mainly single player it will be a buy later when it is cheaper title.

Cheap bin for me. Big fan of the series but SP games no longer need day 1 purchasing.

Could not resist when I found XCom2 for AU$50 - bring on the soldier customisation.

Game looks much improved

The only reason why it wouldn't eventually be released on console is the sales numbers of the last game. 500k sales on console Vs 5mill on PC.

There is no controller support for the game, but I did find controller related lines within the XCoM 2 ini files - meaning they were planning, or are planning controller integration.

So far the game is quite good. 6 hours in and quite a bit harder than XCoM:EU/EW - i have many wounded soldiers but no deaths (see image).

Mod support is meant to be excellent this time around, so there will be lots of mods to help give the game longevity also - even complete overhauls are said to be possible.
