XCOM 2 is an all new strategy game, set in the year two thousand and ten. The aliens from another planet called the Xenos have returned, and now humans are fighting back. You must put your new arsenal of gadgets, weapons, upgrades and tactical abilities to use and stop the alien onslaught from a very fragile Earth. The combat is done using tactical turns which allow you to decide how to do something, then following that up with a turn that allows you to use the gadget or weapon that you chose.
The XCOM 2 story follows the start of your new life as a war veteran who has been assigned to protect Earth. Your wife, also a veteran, is with you, doing her best to understand what you are about to face. This is no easy task when you are tasked with stopping a ruthless alien invasion which involves tens of thousands of aliens, all aiming to find their own species to conquer and enslave. The human race is about to be the enemy as you take part in the most important conflict ever to be a main theme of the game.
Once you start the game, you will need to make some initial purchases before you can move on to any XCOM 2 information. First, you must select which factions you are going to fight against. Then you must make sure that you have a load of grenades, as well as shields and other crucial item. You should also buy some weapons, if you can, and keep them hidden from the enemy in order to be able to fight effectively without them being detected.
Once you have all of this in place, you will be given the option to play through the tutorial levels of XCOM 2. Here you will see how the game mechanics work and how they are meant to be used. After this level is complete, you will be given the opportunity to play through the fully operational mission. This is very good practice for making the most of your weapons and abilities.
The X-COM system of the game is very different from the first one. Enemy threats will be much more sophisticated and deadly. The aliens will be trying to locate the best place to attack. You must make sure that you know where the aliens will attack first so that you can get your units positioned to prevent the death of their leader.
As in the first game, the soldier classes will be the ones who will need the most practice. If you want to win, you will need to learn about all of the soldier classes, their skills and abilities, and how to use them effectively. You must ensure that the enemy is never close enough to get a shot in on you.
The best advice that anyone can give to any gamer looking to play the XCOM 2 is to make sure that they are playing at a high difficulty. This is going to be the only way to keep the games moving along smoothly and to give you the experience you will need to make the most of the game. Not many games give you the chance to use all of the tactical and strategic options that the games will provide you.
Now that you know what the basic gameplay of the XCOM 2 is, you can move on to choosing the right kind of strategy game for you. This will depend on the type of player you are, and how much time you have to play the game.
