XCOM 2: War of the Chosen available now

2K and Firaxis Games proudly announce the release of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, the expansion of XCOM 2, 2016’s Strategy Game of the year. It’s now available for Windows PC(Steam).

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen takes the incredible thrilling experience of XCOM 2 and provides the players with all new features and allies to combat ADVENT, the main enemy of the XCOM initiative. The Advent has deployed three deadly new aliens called the “Chosen” which will challenge the players to their limits. In order to aid XCOM in its fight to liberate Earth, players will have access to three new resistance factions, each with their own unique Hero class, in addition to new weapons, options to form bonds between soldiers and a new photo booth feature to create custom propaganda posters.

The expansion will feature the following:

  • New Factions & Hero Classes: Three additional factions represent pockets of resistance to ADVENT – the Reapers, Skirmishers and Templars – each with its own Hero class, skills and abilities can be recruited to stand with XCOM.
  • The ADVENT won’t stand by idly and will call forth powerful adversaries named The Chosen, enemies tasked by the Elders to recapture the Commander at all costs. Masters of asymmetrical warfare, the Chosen will kidnap, interrogate and ultimately kill XCOM’s soldiers. They can even invade the strategy layer and ravage XCOM’s global operations. These units are the Hunter, the Warlock and the Assassin.
  • New Alien and ADVENT Threats: Adopt new tactics alongside the new faction allies to counter a deadly new alien known as the Spectre, the explosive attacks of the ADVENT Purifier, the psionically charged ADVENT Priest, as well as the creeping swarms of The Lost. If you thought XCOM 2 was challenging, than prepare for another difficulty spike.
  • New Photo Booth: Immortalize your soldiers during their trials by creating customizable war-and-meme-worthy posters that are both sharable and can be found while in game.
  • New maps/environments and Mission Objectives: Players can engage in wide-ranging tactical missions, from abandoned cities devastated by alien bioweapons during the original invasion, to underground tunnels and xenoformed wilderness regions.
  • Enhanced Strategy Layer: Manage Covert Actions, Resistance Orders, and XCOM’s relations with factions while countering enemy operations from the Avenger.
  • Enhanced Strategy Layer: Manage Covert Actions, Resistance Orders, and XCOM’s relations with factions while countering enemy operations from the Avenger.

Being over 30 years old, I've been playing videogames since I've exchanged my pacifier for a game controller. I've only recently started reviewing games and it's incredibly fun to do and educational as I get to know a lot of new stuff about videogames and the industry. My favourite game genres are RPG's(strategy RPG, J-RPG,...), adventure, platforming, simulation and retro.
