XCOM 2 will launch on Xbox One and PS4 on September 6, 2016. The strategy hit originally released as a PC exclusive in February of 2016. However, at the time, developer Firaxis had not ruled out a console version.
While Firaxis’ development team is still working hard to resolve the technical issues present in the PC version of XCOM 2, the development of XCOM 2 for consoles will be handled by partner studio, The Workshop. The Workshop is a seasoned studio who has been credited for their work on the console versions of The Evil Within and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, as well as, their own original work for Sorcery on PS3 and Mr. Torgue’s Campaign of Carnage DLC for Borderlands 2.
XCOM 2 will launch alongside all of its currently available DLC. There are a couple of options available to players for purchasing the DLC. A season pass will be available when the game launches for consoles at a price of $19.99. Alternatively, players can purchase the game bundled with all of the current DLC for $74.99.
Unfortunately, unlike the console versions of Fallout 4, XCOM 2 on consoles will not allow the use of mods created by the PC version’s active mod community. According to 2K, there is no plan to support mods on the console versions of XCOM 2 at this time.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
