Lowest price so far surely? Even cheaper than the Humble Monthly bundle?

------

Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces and XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda below 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, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to rise from the ashes, expose the insidious truth behind the occupation, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.



Key Features:

XCOM ON THE RUN
Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. Guide your strike force around the world, build popular support and expose the aliens’ sinister plans.

RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS
Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree including new class abilities like Momentum, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.

TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT
New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. The state of the world affects each combat mission’s environment. 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.

Nah, Humble Monthly worked out slightly cheaper, even before factoring in the rest of the bundle. This is still a great price now, though.

I was a tiny bit put off by being tied into a subscription (even though I appreciate you can cancel). Still its hit my sub £10 biting point so looks like I will finally get to play it

You're not tied into anything - you can cancel as soon as you've paid and still receive the full bundle for the month.

Jeez what a deal! Thing is I have such a backlog already spent ages clearing my PS4 one now picked up an Alienware on the cheap the other week so now I've opened myself up to my pc gaming backlog as well

I really want to play this having heard so many good things but I also hear it's brutally difficult! I'm not the greatest at these sort of games so is there an easy mode? Or is such a suggestion blasphemous?!

As far as I understand there are a number of mods which you can use to make life easier or harder for you...

Review:
XCOM® 2 Metacritic: 88% (1040 critics, 7.1 from 1293 users), Steam: Mostly Positive 79% (13025 reviews)

XCOM 2 is TotalBiscuit's Game of the Year (with Civ 6 second):
Totalbiscuits full review: WTF Is... - XCOM 2 ?

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Edition (also with £5 of Amazon coins) is £3.84 at HumbleBundle right now in the e3 bundle.

There's the Long War 2 mod for XCOM 2 (not making it easier), and a similar Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown to expand the campaign and combat.

The long war 2 mod for it - yes, brutally difficult.
The base game... isn't bad at all.

Huge new expansion announced 2 days ago (12/06/17) so worth getting yourself acquainted with the base game.

Key tip is to ALWAYS try and flank
