The creators of XCOM, Feral Interactive, announced earlier last week that the XCOM 2 Collection is coming to IOS as a premium release. For a time Feral Interactive has been teasing the idea of a new port to accompany their other game ports to mobile such as, Rome: Total War and Company of Heroes. With the XCOM 2 Collection port for Nintendo Switch already released for the physical copy, there will be no shortage of people lined up to purchase it on mobile.
The popular turn-based tactics game has been recreated for touchscreen compatibility, making for a better experience when it comes to mobile. The XCOM 2 Collection will contain XCOM 2: War of the Chosen alongside four pieces of DLC which include:
- Alien Hunters
- Shen’s Last Gift
- Anarchy’s Children
- Resistance Warrior Pack
The game is a sequel to the previous XCOM. A grief stricken Earth has been conquered by Aliens and the players, who have been severely weakened by the Alien onslaught, must mount an attack against the Invaders. Humanities last hope, the XCOM initiative still exists and it is up to the players to command their troops in strategic warfare to combat their foes with incredible abilities and weaponry in the hope that Earth will once again be free from these Alien Invaders.
The release date is set for November 5th, around two weeks away; and as of right now it is available for preorder for IOS and the APP Store for $24.99 here.
