The XCOM 2 embargo has lifted and the Internet is bombarding you with images, write ups, and videos. Well, we’re adding to it with a nice video featuring some gameplay.

Above, Arekkz gives you a look at one of the early missions, from start to finish.

You get a look at the new gameplay mechanics such as Concealment mode at the the start of a mission, and the Overwatch mode designed for setting up ambushes.

XCOM 2 is out in February, and if you missed our coverage of the game here you go:
