Default XCOM 2 preload available

February 4th, 2016, 05:55
Hi everyone!

I don't know if it's already old news but XCom 2 pre-load is already live on Steam.

URL: http://steamcommunity.com/games/2685…65914362353836

This announcement also has a .JPG showing the release date across the world. Zone 1 will be 4th Feb, so Corwin, INXS and George Miller (from Mad Max fame) will get to play the game first Unhappily I don't come from a land down under.

To Myrthos: would you create a specific forum for X-Com 2, please ? Thank you!

Why the hell didn't they cut the very eastern part of russia from the left border and paste it to the image's right border?

It was supposed to be cut out and added later through a season pass, but someone thought it's an error and returned it to the rediculous spot.

Not likely to happen. Not enough long-term traffic to keep a dedicated sub-forum alive. I would recommend using the Non-RPG forum.

But don't you think the game will generate a considerable amount of buzz (since many members already preordered the game and others will buy it later) with we RPGwatch members playing the game, installing/uninstalling mods (let's not forget Firaxis will officially support mods), changing ideas about the best squad formation, asking for help, etc etc ? Would this not qualify to open a new dedicated sub-forum ?

I don't think we should start opening sub-forums for non-RPGs. Just my opinion.

I preordered and would post in a sub forum but I have to agree theres probably not enough interest site wide to support one.

Honestly unless theres a back and forth argument between a couple, three people most threads can't sustain themselves much less a whole sub forum.

Just start a tips and strategy or xcom catchall thread or something and interested members will post.

I expect the game will get a lot of love around here. My ordering plans got derailed a bit, but I hope to join the horde fairly soon. Long term discussion board-wide? We'll see how that goes.

Exactly. If it blows up into dozens of conversations, I'm sure the powers-that-be will consider how they'd like to proceed.

I have quite the same feeling!
