Console owners will be able to play XCOM 2 later this year, 2K has confirmed. Already out on PC as well as on Mac, the game will be arriving on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in North America on September 6, with other territories able to start playing it on the consoles from September 9.
The follow-up to the 2012 release and taking place 20 years after the previous game, XCOM 2 tasks players with taking command of a depleted XCOM force, reduced following the failure by humanity to defeat alien invaders. Using stealth as well as weaponry, this tactical game has players taking down enemies while also trying to increase their team's numbers, in order to defeat Earth's alien overlords.
The sequel has already got a pair of downloadable content packs available for it on PC and Mac, providing extra enemies and in-game items. Polygon reports pre-orders of the game will get unique skins for characters, and a deluxe package will include all currently-released expansions along with the base game.
