XCOM 2 packshot image
XCOM2 continues the story from XCOM: Enemy Unknown, assuming the player lost the fight against the alien menace. Assuming the role of a guerilla resistance task forced, XCOM 2 is a sci-fi turn-based strategy and base builder.

PC System Analysis For XCOM 2 Requirements
By comparison XCOM 2 is far more demanding than its predecessor XCOM: Enemy Unknown. While the top-down viewpoint and turn-based nature suggests suggests otherwise, XCOM 2 will take advantage of capable GTX 900-series and Radeon R300-series graphics cards. Beware the MSAA option, even the GTX 980 Ti struggles with this forced downsampling effect.
