Xbox sale offers an amazing deal to gamers by slashing the price of XCOM 2, one of the best games of 2016, to a whopping $3. This critically acclaimed tactical RPG by Firaxis Games, sequel to the 2012 X-COM series reboot XCOM: Enemy Unknown, is available at a heavy discount for Xbox owners for a limited period only. The XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition can also be purchased for only $7.49. (Unfortunately, The XCOM 2 Collection bundle is still at full price at $99.99.)
Released four years after its predecessor, XCOM 2 was launched for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and was received well by critics. The game boasts an 87 on Metacritic for Xbox One edition, and was nominated for several awards in the year of its release, such as Game of the Year and PC Game of the Year at 2016 Golden Joystick Awards and Best Strategy Game at The Game Awards. XCOM 2 has won Strategy/Simulation Game of the Year at 20th Annual D.I.C.E. Awards. Though 2K Games, the publisher, is happy with the title’s sales, there is no update on a third edition of XCOM.
For those who have not played XCOM 2 before, now is the perfect time to try out the game for such a great price. Grab the game through the sale on Microsoft’s Xbox Marketplace that ends in a few hours. The game is also available for purchase on Mobile, PC, PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One for its standard price.
