Can I run XCOM 2 in my 32-bit Windows 7 machine? The recommendation says it needs 64 bit to run the game.
XCOM does not include a 32-bit executable, so it simply will not run on a 32-bit system. It's also likely that a computer old enough to run 32-bit windows 7 fails to meet the other system requirements.
Googling did uncover an unofficial 32-bit mod, but the site it was on did not look trustworthy.
