Xcom 2 £9.77 @ Instant gaming

Found 16th Dec 2017
Cheapest price I have seen for Xcom 2 (albeit by a few pennies).

Posting for the benefit anyone that missed the Humble / Greenman Gaming deals earlier in the year.


XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year.

Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.

Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

  • XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.
  • RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.
  • TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.
  • A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.
  • RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.
  • EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.
  • CREATE CUSTOM MODS: Community-focused tools allow you to create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop.
  • ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.

Can't recommend this enough - such a wonderful game.
Tried to click hot with an 80% chance of registering but all 3 three attempts missed.

But it wouldn't be Xcom without it
This is a great price, however the DLC adds so much to the game so if you can I'd buy the deluxe edition plus the expansion War of the Chosen and play it like that, that's what I did recently and it was worth every penny. For £38 I got nearly 90 hours out of it, and after finishing it and seeing what all the DLC added I would have regretted not getting it.
How much of a leap over the 'first' one is this?
I'm only a little way in to playing it and I'm really impressed so far. The Xcom series has to be one of my favourites right from the very original UFO enemy unknown.

I completed and adored both. More mission variety in terms of level design and countdown missions mean more aggressive tactics needed than hunkering on some missions. Took over my life when had it. Bargain price
