Newegg via Ebay offers XCOM 2 - Xbox One for $4.99 (orig. $39.99) with free shipping.
Firaxis' turn-based strategy series finds the XCOM forces in shambles and spread across the globe after 20 years of alien rule in XCOM 2. The aliens appear beneficent, building thriving cities around the planet, but they also secretly harbor less wholesome plans, and any who oppose their process are permanently dealt with. It's up to gamers to assemble the remaining XCOM forces, pilot a stolen alien supply craft named The Avenger around the world, recruit new resistance fighters, and make one last-gasp effort to expose the alien conspiracy and save the human race.
Players once again take on the role of an XCOM commander who gives orders to soldiers during combat, and then spends the time in between battles building new rooms on The Avenger and directing scientists and engineers to research new weapons, armor, and technology. Gamers can recruit five different classes of resistance fighter, each with specific skill trees and special class abilities, but there are also plenty of different aliens to battle, including the new ADVENT security forces. Combat has been slightly altered to offer guerrilla tactics befitting the new nature of XCOM as a resistance force, and procedurally generated levels mean the maps, missions, and goals are almost always different. Multiplayer fans can form squads featuring a mix of humans and aliens and engage in head-to-head action.
