XCOM 2 is a 3D sci-fi strategy game developed by Firaxis Games for Mac, PC, Linux, PS4 and XBox One. XCOM 2 continues to plot of the XCOM series, picking up 20 years after the aliens invaded Earth and ultimately forced the human race into surrender. Now that the aliens rule the planet and have been creating new structures and great technologies vastly different than what was available from before, some of the human population has been deceived into thinking that the aliens are actually being helpful and productive. The few XCOM members who are left know better than this and plan to fight back and expose the alien race's underlying nefarious plans.
