Hello, Commander. One of our resistance cells, Long War Studios[www.longwarstudios.com], has promised new tools to help us combat ADVENT and the alien menace. Starting today, XCOM soldiers will have new laser-based weapons to equip, as well as a complete reworking of classes and Abilities to employ in XCOM 2.
The “Perk Pack” and “Laser Pack” mods are available for download through the XCOM 2 Steam Workshop right now. Simply head over to the Long War Studios section of Steam Workshop here and subscribe to the new mods. They will then be automatically downloaded through your Steam client.
Here’s a rundown of the new mods:
“Perk Pack” Mod
Choice of three perks per promotion rank instead of two
More than 70 new and reworked Abilities that can be assigned to soldiers, gear or aliens
Reworks the four base classes into seven, including the assault, gunner and shinobi, or create your own class
Adds ten new PCS items, each granting a unique ability
Support for more than 15 active abilities in the tactical UI
“Laser Pack” Mod
Adds a new laser tier of XCOM weaponry, which includes a new variant for the assault rifle, shotgun, cannon, sniper rifle, pistol and SMG, plus all attachments
Mod includes models, textures, particle effects and sounds
Tier exists between magnetic and beam tiers, with two new technologies
Hello, Commander. XCOM has uncovered intel on a hidden ADVENT facility housing new high-tech weaponry. Lily Shen, Chief Engineer on the Avenger, has volunteered to accompany your most elite squad as they infiltrate this facility, so that she may help uncover and assess what impact this new alien tech will have in the battle to reclaim Earth.
The ADVENT test facility in question is housed within multiple skyscrapers, linked together by enclosed bridges
The ADVENT MECs are based on a single prototype unit, which we believe to be somewhere within this ADVENT facility
We will update you with more info as it’s made available, Commander. Good luck.
Shen’s Last Gift requires XCOM 2 to play and will be available on June 29 for $9.99. If you already own the Reinforcement Pack, do not purchase this DLC separately as you will be charged for it. Please note: Mac and Linux versions are coming soon.
