Nice 10 minute gameplay video, highly scripted of course but it still seems pretty nice. I like the fact a Brit has the proper accent so maybe they've expanded on the soldiers having regional voices like they did in EW.

Not so keen on many of the icons being almost identical to EU/EW though... looks like my mod may have to be remade after all.

It's out and it's lovely stuff. Maxed out graphics at 60FPS in 1080 using FXAA instead of MSAA, no option to run it in 4k yet...Lot's of people having performance issues and I can certainly see those issues, my frames like to dip into 40FPS every now and then but nothing bad so far and I'm using old graphics drivers, using Geforce drivers 358.91 which came out Nov 2015, there's been 4 driver updates since then. :o

My PC spec incase you're wondering how it'll perform for you.
Intel Core i5 4670K 3.40GHz
G-Skill 8GB Ripjaws X DDR3 1600
MSI GTX 970 GAMING Twin Frozr V 4GB GDDR5

Is that regarded as a top spec nowadays? I have the same RAM, but other than that mine seems a bit prehistoric when looking at this :s

Time to upgrade I suppose...

Graphics card is 2 years old, everything else is 3 years. So probably mid spec.

It's pretty tasty

Harder than the old one and the new aliens have some nasty abilities. Maps seem a little busy and I'm not convinced the enemy reveal encounters are either consistent or fair all the time. Every so often the kill cam comes up with somthing truly awesome, usually involving shotguns, overwatch and running stun troopers

Reloading is now consistent and only takes one action regardless so you can reload then shoot as well as shoot and reload. That bugged the everloving shit out of me in the first one that if reload as a first action it used the entire turn. I haven't had a panicked soldier shoot a friendly with perfect aim from half a map away either

Heavies can get an upgrade that can shoot cover. Yay, only 22 years from the first one do we get that ability back. Still sucks you can't free aim on everyone though.

I'm feeling a bit lost on the strategic layer. Too much shit going on but it'll be fine after I fuck up the first run through and figure it out.

Combat can be a bit brutal. Lost my main sniper when a trooper shot at my scout, missed, hit a propane tank and that blew up the building my sniper was on top of. Ouch! Awesome but... fuck.

I'm hoping I've been unlucky by way too many of my missions so far have had timers on. There is a military term for rushing blind into a combat zone, it's "fucking stupid".

Lots of new shit to learn but fun times learning it.

I did start to worry that XCOM 2 wouldn't get a proper expansion like XCOM 1, which was brilliant.

Phew. Cannot wait to play this! :D
