We’re excited to announce that Firaxis and Valve are collaborating on native integration for the Steam Controller, and we can’t wait for fans to get early access to it starting today.
XCOM 2's native integration allows the player to do the following with the Steam Controller:
Use a different control scheme based on the in-game situation.
Experience precise and responsive 1:1 camera controls using the touchpads in the Geoscape and the Tactical view.
Instantly select your ability with the flexibility of the controller's Touch Menus.
We consider this configuration to be an initial implementation, and as always, we hope the community will provide feedback in addition to making improvements to the configuration on their own.
For a limited time, the Steam Controller is available bundled with XCOM 2 at a 40% discount! Customers that have already pre-ordered XCOM 2 through Steam can still benefit from the discount on the controller if they purchase it separately.
Greetings, Commander. We're happy to report that pre-load is now live for XCOM 2 on Steam. If you pre-ordered the game, simply head into your Library and click on XCOM 2, then click the Pre-Load button to begin downloading the game.

The Resistance War Pack also includes a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks.
