• XCOM 2 - Part 0 - Introduction and Backstory - Let's Play

    125 views 5 days ago
    XCOM 2 is here and I'm finally getting back into the fight! In this video I introduce you to XCOM 2, and also explain/recap the story from XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the first game in the XCOM series. I create my own soldier, and attempt to recruit you to my new army as well.

    I'm not a popular YouTuber, especially with games, and don't have a gaming community following. I think this'll probably still be fun for me anyways, and perhaps I can meet some new people too!

    XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year.

    Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.

    Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

    XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.

    RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.

    TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.

    A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.

    RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.

    EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.

    CREATE CUSTOM MODS: Community-focused tools allow you to create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop.

    XCOM 2 Soldier Class Descriptions:

    XCOM 2 Psi Operative: Depending on who you ask, psionics could be the aliens greatest strength. Now our own operatives can tap into that same power.

    XCOM 2 Ranger: The ranger serves as our primary reconnaissance unit. Capable of moving independently in concealment while engaging enemies at close range.

    XCOM 2 Sharpshooter: Our sharpshooters engage enemy targets with pinpoint accuracy from extreme range. They are also trained in pistol marksmanship for the occasional close encounter.

    XCOM 2 Specialist: Operating some of our most advanced equipment, specialists employ robotic drones called gremlins on the battlefield that can be outfitted for combat, or field medic duty.

    XCOM 2 Grenadier: Serving as our demolitions experts, the grenadiers provide heavy ordnance delivery whenever and wherever we need it.
