Firaxis has a history of supporting mobile platforms with its strategy games. The original XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been available on iPad for quite some time and more recently, the studio also brought Civilisation VI to mobile platforms. Now, XCOM 2 and its expansion, War of the Chosen, will be joining that list.
As a grid-based strategy game, XCOM has always been a good fit for touch screen devices. It will be one of the more expensive game purchases on iOS though, coming in at £23.99.
The XCOM 2 collection will release on iOS on the 5th of November, supporting the iPhone 7 Plus and up, as well as the iPad Pro 2017 and newer. As you would expect from a collection, this includes the base version of XCOM 2, its expansion and four smaller DLC packs; Resistance Warrior Pack, Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters and Shen’s Last Gift.
KitGuru Says: I played a lot of XCOM 1 and Civilisation VI on my iPad Pro, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing how XCOM 2 holds up. Are any of you thinking about picking this up for portable play?
