I just watched this 12-minute video introducing me to XCOM 2's mobile command center, the Avenger, and now I'm having difficulty breathing. Paramedics have been dispatched to my location.
This looks like your first handshake with XCOM 2's narrator — who may as well be your executive officer — and your other chief officers onboard your mobile HQ. The narrator sounds like he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders. Maybe even more than you. You don't get to see the mobile HQ mobilize, but you do get to see:
There's a lot to take in during the 12-minutes, but it's awesome. The narrator (the XO I'd mentioned earlier) keeps the tone balanced with updates on how bleak humanity's current position is, and positive feedback loops, by continually backing up your decisions: "Good call, Commander."
XCOM 2 is, so far, PC only; due sometime in November. While they're different games, Fallout 4 will be eating some of XCOM 2's lunch in that timeframe. If XCOM 2 were coming to consoles, I'd have the toughest decision of the year on my hands. Read our interview with Lead Producer Garth DeAngelis—John grills him right off the bat about the PC-only decision.
