XCOM 2 will be available on PS4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016, 2K Games has announced.

The arrival of XCOM 2 on consoles has been rumored for a while now, and the devs at Firaxis has just made it official. The console version of XCOM 2 will be available to pre-order in two different versions: the $59.99 Standard Edition, which includes just the base game, and the $79.99 Digital Deluxe Edition, which includes the Reinforcement Pack and three DLC packs.

"XCOM 2 will be available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016. You can pre-purchase XCOM 2, in either standard or Digital Deluxe form, right now through the 2K Store. The game will also be available for pre-purchase through each respective console marketplace soon. Pre-ordering XCOM 2 will unlock the Resistance Warrior Pack, which includes additional soldier customization options like bonus outfits, headgear and custom facial war paint, as well as a "Survivor of the Old War," a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger's barracks," reads the official update.

The following DLC content is included with the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition:

  • ANARCHY'S CHILDREN: This rebellion-themed content pack introduces more than 100 new exotic customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers. These options are purely cosmetic and do not alter the stats of a soldier. (Available at launch)
  • ALIEN HUNTERS: Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign. Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend. (Available at launch)
  • SHEN'S LAST GIFT: Introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and a new narrative-driven mission and map. (Available at launch)

We'll likely see more XCOM 2 console footage at Take-Two Interactive's E3 presence, along with huge reveals like Red Dead Redemption 2 and possibly Grand Theft Auto VI.
