XCOM 2’s Long War 2 fan mod is now available for PC

Long War 2.

XCOM fans are going to have a busy day.

2K announced today that the free Long War 2 mod is available for its strategy game XCOM 2 on PC via the Steam Wokshop. It gives player a longer campaign than the original game (about 100 to 120 missions), smarter enemies, and new soldier classes. Although it’s a mod, 2K and XCOM developer Firaxis are promoting it directly and even partnered with Long War 2 developer Pavonis Interactive to help create it.

The first Long War was one of the most popular for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, adding new units, weapons, and campaign. Releasing a new one for XCOM 2 gives players free content to explore, keeping them interested (or bringing them back) long after the game’s release last February.

Although XCOM 2 is also out on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the console versions do not have mod support.

Gaming history is filled with other mod success stories. Both Counter-Strike and Team Fortress were once mods for the original Half-Life, with developer Valve hiring their teams to make new, official versions of their games. Valve also hired developers responsible for the Warcraft III mod Defense of the Ancients to create Dota 2, the second biggest multiplayer online battle arena in the world and one of the industry’s most lucrative games.

You can learn more about Long War 2 via a series of videos posted on Xcom’s official YouTube channel.

Samsung’s phone-as-desktop concept now runs Linux

Samsung's DeX is a clever way to turn your phone into a desktop computer. However, there's one overriding problem: you probably don't have a good reason to use it instead of a PC. And Samsung is trying to fix that. It's unveiling Linux on Galaxy, an app-based offering that (surprise) lets you run Linux distributions on your phone. Ostensibly, it's aimed at developers who want to bring their work environment with them wherever they go. You could dock at a remote office knowing that your setup will be the same as usual.

It's not quite the same as your typical Ubuntu or Debian install. Linux on Galaxy launches through an app, and it's using the same kernel as Android itself in order to maintain performance. And it almost goes without saying that you'll really want a DeX setup, since most Linux apps are expecting a large screen, mouse and keyboard.

As it stands, you'll have to be patient. Linux on Galaxy isn't available right now -- you can sign up for alerts, but it's not ready for public consumption. Even so, this is good evidence that Samsung thinks of DeX as considerably more than a novelty feature. It may be a long, long while (if ever) before many people are using their phones as desktops, but Samsung is willing to gradually build up its ecosystem and eventually give you an incentive to take a second look.
