Epic has been giving away at least one free game a week since the start of the COVID pandemic. Add it to your Epic library, and it is yours to keep. Usually it is the base game with the expansions and DLC costing extra, occasionally they include a few DLC. In the case of X-Com 2, no DLC or expansions, just the base game.

Get it while you can!

Aliens
rule Earth, but secretly hiding a sinister agenda. As the leader of a
guerrilla force, you must ignite a global resistance to eliminate the
alien threat and save the human race.

XCOM® 2
XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year.
Earth
has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an
unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of
defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens
rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for
humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and
eliminating all who dissent from their new order.
Only
those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom.
Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the
run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a
way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once
and for all.
XCOM
ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft
converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets
you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support,
and when to combat enemy counter-operations.
RECRUIT
RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill
tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.
TACTICAL
GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility
in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for
precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by
carrying them to the extraction point.
A
NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien
species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct
tactical challenge.
RESEARCH,
DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give
XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and
Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your
preferred tactics.
EACH
MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from
wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths
of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of
maps, missions and goals.
