XCOM 2 now has even more more DLC, thanks once more to Long War Studios, the modders previously brought on by Firaxis to extend playability of the strategy game.
This latest add-on is called the Alien Pack DLC and it certainly adds to the aliens roster. Which also brings two upgrades to the Viper unit, as well as upgrades for the Archon and the base Advent MEC.
Users are also able create their own Advent soldier types, thanks to a mix-and-match system that lets them change individual soldier components. The system also allows players to change the colors and sizes of other units.
This mod replaces the Muton Centurion mod (one of those units is included in the new lineup). It’s available in the Steam Workshop. Here are the new units.
- Drone (two variations) — an Advent scout and crowd control unit
- Naja (three variations) — a subspecies of the Viper that serves as an alien sniper unit
- Muton Elite — a version of the Muton much more powerful than its predecessors
- Sectoid Commander — an enhanced Sectoid with even greater psionic capabilities
- Sidewinder (three variations) — a subspecies of the Viper that serves as a fast and agile flanker
- Chryssalid Soldier — a larger and more intimidating variation of the Chryssalid
- Hive Queen — an even larger Chryssalid all other Chryssalids bow down to
- MEC Archer (two variations) — an Advent MEC equipped with long-range weaponry
- Advent Sentry (three variations) — an Advent soldier that has great Overwatch abilities
- Advent Rocketeer (three variations) — an Advent soldier with explosive ordinance
- Advent Grenadier (three variations) — an Advent soldier equipped with flashbangs, fire grenades or acid grenades
- Advent Gunner (three variations) — an Advent soldier with a cannon and the ability to suppress multiple XCOM soldiers at once
- Muton Centurion — a variation on the Muton, previously made available in the “Muton Centurion” mod
