A pile of new XCOM 2 screens show off your new headquarters

by Joey Davidson | August 6, 2015

When it comes to XCOM, a lot of time is spent in the headquarters setting. Players manage research, upgrades, weaponry, gear, squads and strategy. Being a commander means navigating menus, and this franchise has always had a cool way of doing that.

What you see above is a pile of screenshots from the new headquarters in XCOM 2. Your base is an Avenger, and it’s a flying home that holds the human rebellion’s central force. You’ll organize troops, speak with department heads and manage your entire army’s strategy.

It’s an ant farm, really, but it’s a cool one that properly demonstrates the scale of the conflict, the things at stake and the customization of it all.

XCOM 2 is only being developed for the PC right now, so far as the world has been told. It’s set to release in November of this year.
