XCOM 2 patch brings balance and performance tweaks

I loved XCOM 2, but even its biggest fans could agree that it needed some serious patch-love. Bugs, hitches, and some nasty difficulty spikes all conspired to keep the game from becoming the instant classic it should have been. Thankfully, ...

XCOM 2 rides the Fury Road with Anarchy's Children DLC

One of my favorite things about XCOM 2 is the level of customization that's been added to soldiers. The ability to mix-and-match armor pieces, colors, and accessories really helps me individualize my troops, and alongside the many...

Review: XCOM 2

XCOM 2 is a frustrating game, and not just due to the infamous difficulty the franchise is known for. It's frustrating because there is an absolutely fantastic game at its core, a total improvement on what was already one of the best turn-b...

I've only had a few hours with XCOM 2, Firaxis Games' follow-up to its 2012 XCOM: Enemy Unknown and I can already tell it's a different beast. At its core, it is still the same isometric turn-based strategy game it has always been, but a da...
