If you can’t wait four-ish more days, this is XCOM 2’s opening cinematic

The four-ish depends on your timezone

I know, I know. I really want to be surprised by XCOM 2 in every way possible, and I’ve almost achieved a perfect media blackout. And now I’m tempting you away from your impressively monastic willpower by dangling an intro cinematic in your face. Come a little, closer, and see…

Firaxis was at PAX South over the weekend to promote XCOM 2, and in addition to presenting the launch mods from Long War Studios, they showed off the opening video on Twitch. The quality isn’t great, but it’s enough to get me excited to send my soldiers (named after my friends and loved ones) to die horribly.
