Here’s XCOM 2’s War of the Chosen DLC in action

I’ll be real here, I’ve never played any of the XCOM games. It’s my most shameful secret. Well, not really, but it’s pretty high up there. Anyway, Dane really seemed to like XCOM 2 in his review, and as he clearly has exceptional taste and impeccable judgement (he hired me, after all) I’m just waiting on a good sale price to jump into it.

But looking at the latest footage of the game’s upcoming War of the Chosen expansion, I might not be able to wait that long.

“The fight against ADVENT continues when additional resistance factions form in order to eliminate the alien threat on Earth,” explains the video’s description. “In response, a new enemy, known as the “Chosen,” emerges with one goal: recapture the Commander.”

The expansion will include “new Hero classes to counter the ‘Chosen’, new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay,” and will be coming to PC, PS4, and XBO on 29 August.
