You can now purchase XCOM 2 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game's season pass, Reinforcement Pack, adds more units and missions and is available for $25.
Firaxis intended to keep XCOM 2 on PC, optimizing the game for the platform where the franchise began back in 1994. Fan reception convinced creative director Jake Solomon and his team to rethink their stance. "The incredible reception of XCOM 2 has been rewarding and humbling for the team, and we’ve known console fans have been clamoring to play the game too. As avid console players ourselves, we’re excited to work with The Workshop to bring XCOM 2 to all of our fans."
Firaxis teamed up with developer The Workshop to port XCOM 2 to Xbox One and PS4. If you feel ready to go all-in, you can purchase a digital deluxe version of the game for $75.
Shacknews' editor Josh Hawkins enjoyed XCOM 2 when he reviewed the PC version earlier this year. "In many ways, XCOM 2 is more of what we already enjoyed in the recent reboot, with a few considerable improvements. The new units liven up the experience and add much more variety, while the procedurally generated maps help to customize every player’s experience into a one of a kind novelty. If you’re a newcomer to the resistance or an old veteran, XCOM 2 is a smartly designed action-strategy game with a staggering amount of content and replayability."
