A cool new effort from the modder Platoon has brought various iconic helmets from the Star Wars universe into the world of XCOM 2.
Platoon’s mod has incorporated the headgear worn by Republic Commandos, Mandalorian warriors, and Stormtroopers – both Imperial and First Order (yes, there’s a difference).
The mod is called Star Wars Helmets, if you can believe such a thing, and is currently available free on Steam Workshop for anyone with a copy of XCOM 2.
It also comes with two face paints that will cover the exposed necks of your soldiers to help them look more believable. Heaven forbid your game about fighting aliens in all out war should slip into the realms of improbability, after all.
XCOM 2 is a pretty incredible game as it is, but I’m of the firm belief that there’s nothing that can’t be improved with a little Star Wars shoehorned in somewhere.
