So I like how the trailer shows off PC, but does not highlight Linux, Mac or Windows. Yet I’m still keen to jump into the gameplay. Since this is XCOM 2: War of the Chosen after all, not a mod.

“War of the Chosen adds exciting strategic depth to XCOM 2’s already thrilling campaign,” said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “In a world where humanity’s last line of resistance is on the run, the arrival of The Chosen pushes XCOM’s technology, tactics and daring to the edge…”

Since these factions provide powerful hero class soldiers to aid in missions. And new opportunities for the strategy layer.
  • THE CHOSEN

So The Chosen are on the hunt for the Commander and will kidnap, interrogate, and kill XCOM’s soldiers. All to complete their objective.

  • NEW ALIEN & ADVENT THREATS
    A deadly new alien known as the Spectre. Capable of creating dark copies of XCOM soldiers, snuck onto the battlefield. Adopt new tactics to counter it as well as the explosive attacks. Both for the ADVENT Purifier and the psionically charged ADVENT Priest.
  • NEW ENVIRONMENTS AND MISSION OBJECTIVES
    Engage in tactical missions across new environments from abandoned cities. Due to the devastation of alien bioweapons during the original invasion. With underground tunnels and xenoformed wilderness regions.
  • ENHANCED STRATEGY LAYER
    So go on to manage XCOM’s relations with factions. Counter The Chosen’s operations from the Avenger. While you employ new Resistance Orders to prioritize your personal strategy.

Zombasite: Orc Schism expansion announced

zombasite orc schism expansion announced linux games on steam

Zombasite: Orc Schism is the first expansion for the unique action RPG. Hence Zombasite is the #zombie apocalypse action #RPG for Linux, Mac and Windows PC. The dynamic, evolving, fantasy world still holds a Very Positive 83% rating on #Steam.

What’s the Zombasite: Orc Schism Story?

Long ago, when a necromancer attempted to raise Elves he thought to be dead. The whole process went very wrong. So instead of raising an army of zombie slaves. Hence a new race was born. The irate Orcs ripped the necromancer to shreds.
So the dormant necromancer magic has protected Orcs from zombie infection ever since. Yet the Zombasite, a zombie parasite, is intelligent. Finally learning how to break the defensive magic. And the new infection swept through the entire Orc population like wildfire. Yet again it all went very wrong. So now a a war rages within each Orc between the Orc blood and the Zombasite. All due to the original Elven blood.

The Orc Blood

So when the Orc blood won, a Dark Orc arose. With less Elven influence in their physiology. The Dark Orcs’s aggressiveness and strength intensified. They have now expanded their terrible savagery.

When the Elven blood won, the new being became one of the Mutated. Due to the Mutated being a new, unstable Elven/Orc race. The Elven heritage has become the dominate part, but they are still corrupted with Orc blood and necromancer magic. This corruption slowly mutates them over time, sometimes in good ways and sometimes bad. No one quite understands the Mutated and everyone fears them.

And finally when the Zombasite won, a Zombie Lord was unleashed. Zombie Lords have full access to the strength of the Orcs and intelligence of the Elves. They are the most powerful and feared Zombies in existence.

With three new powerful factions rising up from the ashes of the old Orc race. How will you continue to survive the Zombasite?

(Zombasite: Orc Schism does not have an official trailer or teaser yet)

Orc Schism Features:

  • Play the Bard class (Minstrel, Illusionist, and Sage specialties) (now 333 total class combinations)
  • Control the defense of your town
  • Fight new monsters (Dark Orcs, Mutated, & Zombie Lords)
  • Solve many more quests
