Firaxis Games and 2K Games have released the official minimum and recommended XCOM 2 system requirements for the Sci-Fi turn based strategy/tactics game XCOM 2. This should bring comfort to those anxiously awaiting the release which was originally scheduled for Fall 2015 but was postponed and is now scheduled for release on February 5th. The minimum requirements appear to be in-line with most low end gaming rigs while the recommended can be fulfilled with most mid-range gaming systems.

In addition to the system requirements 2K Games revealed details on the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition which will cost $75 and include the game’s official soundtrack and Reinforement Pack which includes three DLC expansions. The expansions include Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters and Shen’s Last Gift. The DLCs are scheduled for release in Spring and Summer 2016. The Reinforcement Pack DLCs can be purchased separately as well for $20. Finally those who pre-purchase the game will get the added bonus of the Resistance Warrior Pack which includes new skins, clothing, gear and more for soldiers.
