If you like XCOM 2 and its alien action on PC and want to play it consoles, the sci-fi strategy game will now be available for folks to play on PS4 and Xbox One this September. Three days afterwards the game will go live for said consoles worldwide on September 9th.

For those who don’t own the strategy game, it places gamers in the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, which takes place twenty years after humanity lost the war against the alien invaders and covers the existence of the new world order on Earth. After shadow drifting for years, the team known as XCOM rises up and seeks to eliminate any alien occupation.

Following tactics and other strategies is customization, which allows for better weapons and equipment for your soldiers to perform better on the field. If that sounds interesting, you can get a hold of the game now for PC by hitting up Steam.
Those who are on PS4 and Xbox One will be able to enjoy the extraterrestrial fun on September 6th, and on the 9th for its world release. For more information on XCOM 2 coming to consoles, you can hit up xcom.com.
