XCOM 2 is the sequel to the award-winning XCOM: Enemy Unknown. It expands upon the gameplay of the original but with a new twist.
Earth has changed and is now under alien rule (Yes, this means that you basically failed in the first game.) Facing impossible odds, you must rebuild the XCOM division and ignite a global resistance to reclaim the planet and save humanity. However, this time around the aliens are more challenging and dangerous than ever.
Sound interesting? If want to try out the game, you’re in luck – starting this weekend, all Xbox Live Gold subscribers can play XCOM 2 free as part of Xbox Live Gold’s Free Play Days.
