XCOM 2 continues its invasion on Xbox One starting Sept. 6 in the U.S.

Firaxis and 2K Games will bring XCOM 2, the PC turn-based strategy game sequel, to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It will be released in the U.S. on September 6 and in the rest of the world on Sept. 9.

This version of the game is being developed with the help of The Workshop team, who have previously helped to port games like The Evil Within and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons to consoles. In case you are unfamiliar with XCOM 2, here's a quick description:

XCOM 2, is set 20 years in the future where humanity lost the war against the alien threat and a new world order is in place. XCOM, formerly a secret paramilitary organization, is largely forgotten and must strike back from the shadows to reclaim Earth from the aliens' rule and free mankind from its evil plans.

People who pre-order the console versions of XCOM 2 will get some free extras:

Players who pre-order XCOM 2 will also receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, offering additional soldier customization options such as bonus outfits, headgear and custom facial war paint. The Resistance Warrior Pack also includes a "Survivor of the Old War," a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger's barracks. Additionally, players who pre-order the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will receive the XCOM 2 Reinforcement Pack* which includes all paid XCOM 2 DLC along with the base game and Resistance Warrior Pack.
