According to XCOM’s Twitter, XCOM 2 will be making its way to appear on current-gen consoles, and has also received a release date expected to arrive early September.
Previously there were speculations that XCOM 2 would not be seen on the PS4 and Xbox One systems, however 2K Games have clarified that this will not be the case, and we will see XCOM 2’s appearance on both consoles.
Pre-order’s are also said to be now available in either standard or digital copy through the 2K Store.
By pre-ordering customers are entitled to unlock the Resistance Warrior Pack, which includes additional soldier customisation, bonus outfits and accessories, as well as new XCOM recruit known as, “The Survivor of the Old War.”
The Digital Deluxe Edition of XCOM 2 includes the Reinforcement Pack as well as a collection of three DLC packs:
- ANARCHY’S CHILDREN: This rebellion-themed content pack introduces more than 100 new exotic customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers. These options are purely cosmetic and do not alter the stats of a soldier. (Available at launch)
- ALIEN HUNTERS: Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign. Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend.
