If you're itching to give XCOM 2 another playthrough, now would be the best time to do so as the massive Long War 2 mod has now finally arrived. Totaling at 2.2GB in size, Long War 2 brings with it a much longer campaign, nine new soldier classes, two new weapon tiers, dozens of new enemies, a brand new enemy AI, and a whole bunch more!
While a video covering all of these features would probably drag on forever, allow me to share with you the most recent preview that only covers the new mission types. Its not much, but the mission variety alone should clue you in on how detailed Long War 2 really is. Have a look:
If all of this sounds like something you might enjoy, you can head over to the Steam Workshop and download Long War 2 for free. And if you're a modder yourself I have further good news since the Long War 2 team has decided to make all of their assets free for noncommercial use. In other words, you're free to improve upon the mod and release your own variants, as long as credit is given.
And if you find yourself enjoying Long War 2 and wish there were more games like it, you'll be glad to hear that the same team is currently working on Terra Invicta - a turn-based strategy heavily inspired by XCOM. Its still early on in development so there is unfortunately no gameplay to showcase, but if their mods are any indication its probably going to be well worth the wait. But enough of my blabbering, go play Long War 2, its great!
