Feral Interactive has announced it will be releasing the XCOM 2 Collection on Android next month. The game is expected to launch on Google Play on 13th July.

XCOM 2 Collection originally launched for iOS last year, in which the game that originally launched on PC and consoles made the jump to mobile devices. It featured a completely redesigned interface that was optimised for small screens and touch controls, utilising push, pinch and drag gestures to control the camera.

The XCOM 2 Collection aims to deliver the full PC and console experience of the game on mobile. This includes XCOM 2: War of the Chosen and four DLC packs (Resistance Warrior Pack, Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters and Shen’s Last Gift) under one price.

We published a review of it last year, in which Sergio called XCOM 2’s strategy “one of the best in any mobile game.”

If you’ve always been an Android user and an XCOM fan, it’s nice to see that you will finally be able to enjoy the game on your mobile phone. The original XCOM: Enemy Unknown launched on Google Play back in 2014 packaged with the Enemy Within expansion.

Since XCOM 2 there has also been XCOM: Chimera Squad which released on PC last year. It’s unknown if this will ever make the jump to mobile but it would make sense given the recent attention on the series.

You will be able to download the XCOM 2 Collection from Google Play on 13th July as a paid title costing £23.99 / $24.99 / €27,99. It is also available on the iOS App Store.
