XCOM 2 makes another stop on its tour of the many environments Commanders will have to conquer to defeat Advent.

As well as Advent-controlled cities, XCOM 2 players will battle through wilderness areas, suburbs and shanty towns and of course today’s new reveal – the slums.

These areas are found on the fringe of Advent cities and are plagued by crime and poverty, despite the organisation’s promises of a bright shining future for all who submit to its dominion.

XCOM 2 launches on February 5. I had a go at it in December and had a great time (in part because my haircut is included in the character customisation options); you can watch my agonisingly indecisive battle gameplay footage, if you like.
