XCOM 2 paints a picture of small town America

New, 11 comments

XCOM 2 is a tactical game of placement, timing and appropriate force, as the people of Earth battle against invading aliens.

It's also a game in which environments play a big role, both in selecting strategies and in telling the story. Developer Firaxis just released a handful of screenshots showing off some of the game's small town settings.

"Small town settings are suburban settlements just outside of the sprawling city centers and are best described as havens for folks looking to live like they did before the arrival of the aliens," stated the developer. "Life may move a bit slower out here in the suburbs, but the threat is no less than anywhere else."

XCOM 2 will be released in February for Windows PC, Mac and Linux. Check out the new screenshots below.
