Firaxis Games brought a demo of XCOM 2 to E3 and we saw a quick overview of the video with commentary. Now they have released the short gameplay video.
The single mission comes across as a great interactive cinematic where the story picks up from 10 years after the time humanity surrendered to the alien invasion. With full interaction of the previous Xcom games combined with more cutscenes and an ever evolving narrative it really hits the spot.
The video shows us the introduction, the setting and starts the mission off with the player characters in stealth, moving up to get into a position to then reveal with one mighty ambush. The Advent forces (read: Alien combined with human forces) retaliate with snake creates, huge hulking beasts and new robots.
In addition we see a sneak peak at drones, hacking and objectives which are procedurally generated. So far, Xcom 2 looks like a winning recipe
XCom Enemy Unknown is available with our silver package, giving you 6 months access on the site, and the free game if you feel like catching up with the series :)
Check out the trailer of gameplay.
