So this expansion includes new Hero classes to counter the “Chosen”. While also including new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay.

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…”

  • NEW FACTIONS & HERO CLASSES
    Three additional factions have emerged to strengthen Earth’s resistance. The Reapers, Skirmishers and Templars. Each with its own unique abilities and contrasting philosophies. Since these factions provide powerful hero class soldiers to aid in missions. And new opportunities for the strategy layer.
  • THE CHOSEN
    The Chosen are the most cunning enemies XCOM has ever faced. While each with unique strengths and weaknesses that introduce each new campaign. So The Chosen are on the hunt for the Commander and will kidnap, interrogate, and kill XCOM’s soldiers. All to complete their objective. And The Chosen can also invade the strategy layer and ravage XCOM’s global operations. Find and raid the Chosen’s strongholds to defeat the enemy for good.
  • 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. So coldiers, scientists, and engineers can now deploy for Covert Actions. Since they award supplies and boost faction favour if successfully completed.

Characters and customization:

  • GREATER CUSTOMIZATION & REPLAYABILITY

  • SHARE THE RESISTANCE
    Customize and pose your soldiers, then add filters, text and backgrounds to generate your own unique resistance posters that appear in-game and can be shared with friends.
