Since XCOM 2: War of the Chosen does not have an official release date for Linux and Mac. Therefore we’ll have to be patient, apparently. And I’ve seen a few Twitch streams of the game thus far. This indeed a significant expansion indeed.

So XCOM 2: War of the Chosen greatly expands upon the XCOM 2 campaign. Since the ADVENT, in its bid to recapture the Commander. Having now deployed a deadly new enemy force called the “Chosen.” To aid XCOM in its fight to liberate Earth. So players will have access to three new resistance factions. Each with their own Hero class. The expansion also includes other new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth of strategic gameplay.
