Merely a week ago Feral Interactive announced they would be bringing a port of the excellent XCOM 2 Collection over to iOS devices on 5th November. As of today, the game is available to pre-order from the App Store for $24.99.

The popular turn-based tactics title has been recreated to suit touchscreen controls with the UI notably needing to be redesigned. The XCOM 2 Collection will contain XCOM 2: War of the Chosen alongside four pieces of DLC which include:

  • Alien Hunters
  • Shen’s Last Gift
  • Anarchy’s Children
  • Resistance Warrior Pack

The game sees players having to overthrow the rule the Aliens now have over Earth after emerging victorious following the events of the previous XCOM. Now severely weakened, the XCOM initiative still exists and it'll be up to players to command their troops to strategically bring down the Aliens once and for all.
