It was only three weeks ago that Feral Interactive announced that they would be releasing the XCOM 2 Collection for iOS but it's quickly become a highly anticipated title for Apple users. Now you don't have to wait any longer as the game is available for iPhone and iPad.

It will feature a completely redesigned UI that has been optimised for touch screen controls. A series of push, pinch and drag gestures will control the camera when scanning the battlefield whilst tapping on your troops' icons will bring up a list of their abilities. The UI for the Avenger has also been refined and you can check out what that looks like in the embedded tweet below.
