2K Games has announced that XCOM 2 is currently free to play on Steam. From today and until April 30th, you can download and play this game. Since this is a “free to play” offer, you won’t be able to play the game afterwards. However, and once you purchase it, your progress will transfer to it.
XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year. Facing impossible odds you must rebuild XCOM, and ignite a global resistance to reclaim our world and save humanity.
You can download and start playing the game from here. Below you can also find the game’s key features.
