For those of you that might not know, Long War is a truly amazing mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown that adds new missions, classes, perks, weapons, as well as various balance changes and overhauls - all with the intent to create a much more engaging and challenging experience. Long story short, it managed to take a great game and bring it up to a whole new level. As such, I am incredibly happy to say that the same team is now working on Long War 2 for XCOM 2!
Pavonis Interactive, previously Long War Studios, have already published a variety of XCOM 2 mods, but according to the recent announcement this one should be their most ambitious mod yet. If you're looking for specifics, I'm afraid you're going to have to wait for a couple of weeks, but the good news is that Long War 2 is now finally and officially confirmed!
What I really want to know is where the Long War, or rather Pavonis team is able to find the time to work on such massive XCOM 2 mods, all the while developing their own XCOM-ish game Terra Invicta? I certainly hope Terra Invicta isn't in trouble, because the world sure could use more strategy games, especially ones from a team that has proven they "get it". Thankfully, the new website doesn't indicate anything of the sort, but there is unfortunately no new information there either, so I guess we'll just have to sit tight and wait for now.
