PAX Prime Firaxis Mega Panel Video: XCOM 2 and Civ: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide

The Firaxis Games team behind 2K’s upcoming releases, XCOM 2 and Civilization: Beyond Earth – Rising Tide, spoke at PAX Prime recently, including Jake Solomon (creative director on XCOM 2), Greg Foertsch (art director on XCOM 2), Will Miller (co-lead designer on CivBERT) and David McDonough (co-lead designer on CivBERT).

During the panel, the team discussed varying approaches to design, while also providing fans with an in-depth look at CivBERT’s new diplomacy system and hybrid affinities, as well as revealing new aliens and enemies fans can look forward to in XCOM 2.
