XCOM: Chimera Squad delivers an all-new story and turn-based tactical combat experience in the XCOM universe.

After years of alien rule, humanity won the war for Earth. But when the Overlords fled the planet, they left their former soldiers behind. Now, five years after the events of XCOM 2, humans and aliens are working together to forge a civilization of cooperation and coexistence.

Welcome to City 31, a model of peace in a post-invasion world. However, not all of Earth's inhabitants support interspecies alliance. Chimera Squad, an elite force of human and alien agents, must work together to destroy the underground threats driving the city toward chaos.

Your agents are unique: each of them equipped with special tactical abilities and driven by a different motivation for joining Chimera Squad. Deploy targeted team members to investigate and combat the dangers that pervade the districts of City 31. Lead Chimera Squad through a new experience that innovates on XCOM's turn-based legacy, utilizing strategy, teamwork, and new breach-and-clear gameplay to complete your mission objectives.

The future of City 31 depends on you.

XCOM: Chimera Squad reviews and comments

A relatively straightforward modification of the XCOM 2 formula. Notable changes:

- Soldiers are premade and have set ability trees. You get less agency, but gameplay is more tightly designed around specific synergies.
- If a soldier dies, the mission is restarted. This makes the game lose a lot of tension / drama, which can be both a good and bad thing.
- Exploration / seeking engagement has been replaced with the "breach" system. The tension of triggering multiple mobs is gone, but action is more consistent and predictable.
- Turn order is on a per-unit basis, which dramatically changes how engagements work. The focus is now on eliminating enemy units higher up in turn order.
«Just one more turn»
Favorite Thing: I liked the turn order approach and the ability to use both humans and aliens.
Least Favorite Thing: It needed some more time in the oven. I've had crashes, broken animations, hovering characters, incompletable missions, and more.
