If you don’t know XCOM 2 is a turn-based tactical game developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K.
The game constantly tests your decision-making and management skills like no other, and the rewards you reap or the consequences you face are directly a result of what you opted to or not to do between missions.
Things can change drastically when you decide to take the field though. That’s when the turn-based aspect and the true combative gameplay reveals itself.
At first, you’re limited to deploying a small set of soldiers but can further unlock additional slots to have a larger squad to send on ground operations.
The complexity of the maps and their variety have grown two-folds since Enemy Within. Your average map appears to be much larger – both in width and length keeping you busy.
