Commander, are you ready to lead the resistance? Feral Interactive has recently revealed an in-depth gameplay analysis of the XCOM 2 Collection on iOS. The collection is set to release on November 5 and is currently available for pre-order on the App Store.
The XCOM 2 Collection
The collection will include:
– XCOM 2: War of the Chosen
– 4 DLC packs: “Alien Hunters”, “Shen’s Last Gift”, “Anarchy’s Children” and “Resistance Warrior Pack”
In XCOM, aliens have taken over the Earth, forcing everyone to either conform to their rule or perish. In response, scattered forces of XCOM gathered to fight against the domineering alien regime. They form a global resistance whose ultimate mission is to save humanity and reclaim Earth.
In this turn-based combat game, you take on the role of the commander. As the overseer, it is the commander’s responsibility to lead XCOM forces to victory against the alien regime. You will plan and execute missions on the Avenger, a converted alien supply craft that you can upgrade as the game progresses. Soldiers’ appearance, weapons, and names can be customized to your liking. The ranks of soldiers can also be upgraded to unlock more abilities as well.
The game features a “near infinite” number of combinations of procedurally generated maps and objectives. The controls and user interface have also been completely redesigned for optimal use on mobile devices.
XCOM 2 Collection can be played on the iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, and all iPhones released since the iPhone X. In terms of iPads, all iPad Pros since 2017 will be supported along with all iPads released since 2019.
Feral Interactive is a leading publisher known for Alien: Isolation, GRID Autosport, ROME: Total War, and many other hit titles.
