What is XCOM 2?
The game is set in 2035, 20 years after the events of XCOM: Enemy Within, in a scenario in which humanity was defeated by aliens.
XCOM proved incapable of attenuating the alien threat and was quickly betrayed by the council nations, who surrendered to the aliens shortly after the invasion began. XCOM became nothing more than a resistance force, and went off the radar to avoid persecution at the hands of the aliens. Most of its members either submitted to alien rule and left behind their past or, some, like Central Officer Bradford refused the alien administration and went into hiding. Earth is now controlled by the aliens through the puppet ADVENT Administration, and XCOM has been long-forgotten, members silenced and records erased.
You again assume the role of the Commander, who had up until recently been placed in alien stasis for them to make use of his strategic thinking via a brain implant. After the Commander is rescued by Central Officer Bradford, XCOM launches an attack on an alien convoy and steal an elerium core used to power the Avenger, an alien supply barge that has been converted into XCOM’s mobile base. In the Avenger, the Commander has the support of rogue ADVENT scientist Dr. Richard Tygan, replacing the now-missing Dr. Vahlen, and Chief Engineer Lily Shen, daughter of and successor to Dr. Raymond Shen, with whom the Commander was familiar in XCOM: Enemy Unknown and XCOM: Enemy Within.
