XCOM is not only one of my favourite Feral ports on Linux, but it's also one of my most played and favourite games ever. XCOM 2 now has a brand new trailer, and wow, I'm excited.
They have also announced a Digital Deluxe Edition along with this new trailer.
I'm not entirely sure on when it will launch on Linux, as the press release was a little vague:
QuoteNew York, NY – December 10, 2015 – 2K and Firaxis Games today announced that the XCOM® 2 Digital Deluxe Edition is now available for pre-purchase for $74.99. Launching globally on February 5, 2016 for Windows PC and coming to Mac and Linux via Feral Interactive, the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition includes the sequel to the Game of the Year* award-winning strategy title XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the XCOM 2 Reinforcement Pack** and the digital soundtrack. XCOM 2 takes place 20 years into the future, where humanity has surrendered to the alien threat and XCOM is largely forgotten, forcing them to reclaim Earth and free mankind from the aliens’ rule.
I'm hoping for a day one release, and I hope their wording is to cover themselves if there's a delay, but we will have to wait and see. Their wording makes it sounds like it won't be a day one release, to me anyway.
About XCOM 2
XCOM 2 is the sequel to the Game of the Year award-winning strategy title XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Developed by the strategy experts at Firaxis Games, XCOM 2 transports players 20 years into the future, where humanity lost the war against the alien threat that has established a new world order. The secret paramilitary organization known as XCOM is largely forgotten, and must strike back to reclaim Earth and free mankind from the aliens’ rule. Forced to operate on the run in their new mobile headquarters, players must use a combination of firepower and covert tactics to help XCOM recruit soldiers and build a resistance network, all while attempting to expose the evil alien agenda and save humanity.
