Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer. Especially when some of those enemies join your side against an alien force that almost completely enslaved the entire planet of Earth! In XCOM: Chimera Squad, Humanity is at peace with the aliens that their Overlords left behind, but underground threats now seek to destroy this peace. 11 unique agents are at your disposal, all equipped with unique personalities and tactical abilities, capable of performing devastating combos with the right combination of team members. The classical turn-based system that XCOM defined the most now returns, with a few twists and turns to keep the action intense and more strategic than ever.

Developer Quote
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.
