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 control of Earth and free mankind from the aliens’ rule. XCOM 2 is currently scheduled for release in November 2015. The game will also be coming to Mac and Linux via Feral Interactive.

In XCOM 2, the roles have been reversed, and XCOM is now the invading force. They are hampered by limited resources and must constantly evade the alien threat in their new mobile headquarters. Players must use a combination of firepower and stealth-like tactics to help XCOM recruit soldiers and build a resistance network, while attempting to expose the evil alien agenda and save humanity. XCOM 2 will introduce gameplay features such as procedurally-generated levels, which will make each experience unique to the player, as well as offer a much deeper level of modding support. Additionally, XCOM 2 will offer a variety of new content including five updated soldier classes, increased soldier customization, more alien and enemy types, evolved tactical combat and more.


And it's a PC Exclusive! No console bullshit! :D :D

This is sweet cool. Re-posting here:

Quote:
Came out of the (Firaxis) mega panel a little bit ago. (Jake) Solomon's big deal was a new reveal in customization. You can customize characters and save them to a "character pool" for random generation later or in later games. You can also designate them as scientists, engineers, and guys for missions (VIP's, named baddies, etc.)

Saw the new chryssalid. More spikey, more antlike than fishlike. Same general look aside from the mentioned.

Saw the Grenadier in action, good destructive capability. Advent me has small mortar that does similar, at least level 2 versions. EDIT Grenadiers carry the grenade launcher (for dat lovely THUMP) and a minigun, it looked like.

Practically nothing but new footage. Saw some more custom options.

Saw the Muton melee animations. They can do a counter attack if next to something that hits them.

Saw Berserker animations. She can be provoked into a blood rage th art causes her to attack ANYTHING nearby, friend or foe.

Saw Chrysalid animations and cocoon they put on infected units.

Saw Sectoid reanimation ability. Affected units have the zombie animation lost from chrysalid. Sectoid has a chance to "glitch" back into their scurry movement animations.

Saw a new Advent unit: Shock Lancer. Pure melee human zealot, will forsake cover to move closer. Can stun but has chance to knock unconscious. Jake mentioned they would be awesome if they were on your team. "Mind control them and they'll be awesome."

Last new enemy, presented by the Council guy: called the Faceless. Seemingly normal civilians that transform into tall, vicious looking melted looking individuals.

Also, kind of an Easter egg: We saw what might have been Bradford watching/playing Civ: Beyond Earth

Pre-orders for XCOM 2 up at Steam. Pre-ordering gets you more soldier customization goodies.

Gonna assume it is Steam only, in that case not gonna get it. Miss the original one, hell even enjoyed Terror from the Deep. Heck I even enjoyed playing the Matrix Xcom clone.

But I aint doing any Steam shit.
