The rumored partnership between 2K Games and Long War Studios is now confirmed. Long War Studios, the makers of the Long War mod for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, are going to be working on some mods for XCOM 2 that will be released at launch, on February 5.

While the announcement doesn’t go into detail on what those mods will be, looking at the Long War mod I think we can safely assume that we’ll see a collection of mods that aim to make the game tougher and more challenging for the master strategists among us.

XCOM 2 will release in just two weeks, together with Long War Studios’ mods. If you weren’t excited for the game yet, now is a good time to start.
