XCOM 2

Post by Kinky Kel » 03 Feb 2016, 11:25

Anyone planning on banging this one out?

I'm still super pumped for it.

I wish I had the money for it... would love to jump in straight away.
But looks like I will be waiting a few months until I can get it for $30 rather than $60

Not sure I want to reallocate time away from other games to play it. It looks really good though, so I probably will. Sounds like there's a lot of potential for modding this time around as well, which will hopefully bring a bunch of interesting tweaks to the base game. I'm really hoping someone can work out a co-op mode for it as I think that would be pretty amazing.

Haha. This is a nice trip to Port Fairy to enjoy the beach.
I'm looking forward to it, and at least I can set this going before I leave :)
Well otherwise I will do it from my phone and just leave my PC running while I am gone

Is there going to be a pre-load for it?
I was hoping to have it installed before I leave Friday

There's going to be a preload but they don't know when it will start yet, nor the exact time it will release. Don't know why they don't know those two things but I looked for the same things earlier and that's the official answer. -_-

Yeah, it's kinda odd we don't have a pre-load already. While i"m not worried, it'd be nice to get it ready. Personally I'm hoping it actually unlocks tomorrow 12am for us, but I honestly can't see that happening.

I preordered it as soon as I could last year, so I'm in.

Though given I'm slowly working my way through Fallout 4, it'll probably be a bit of time until I get around to playing it.

I'm presuming they will release it on the 5th in the US and it will be the 6th here. I hope I'm wrong :P

Found this article on PCGamer about the modding support coming at launch: http://www.pcgamer.com/best-xcom-2-mods/
The first three coming from the Long War team all sound like really neat additions, especially the Officer perk type system.
