The best XCOM 2 mods

Tweak, change, and enhance one of the best strategy games out there.

Xmod Star Wars

Since its release in early 2016, XCOM 2 has racked up more than 2000 mods on the Steam Workshop. We've assembled our favorites that improve performance and the UI, totally overhaul XCOM's major systems, make the game easier and harder, and so much more. There's a mod that adds co-op play, one that makes XCOM feel more like a Japanese-style Tactics game, totally new character classes and enemies... so have at 'em!

Important: XCOM 2 save files are tied to the mods you use with them. Adding mods as you’re playing through a campaign is no problem, saving a game with a mod enabled will cause the save game only work if and only if the mod is enabled. Make sure you fully read the page for each mod to find installation instructions and warnings.
