Additionally, the “Alien Pack” mod adds two upgrades to the Viper unit, as well as an upgrade to the Archon and the standard ADVENT MEC. A configurable system will also be included for changing colors and size on many units, as well as mixing and matching ADVENT soldier components to create your own ADVENT soldier types.
You can download the “Alien Pack” mod right now in the Steam Workshop. The “Alien Pack” replaces the “Muton Centurion” mod.
Good luck, Commander.
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

Let's welcome our Console Commanders! Starting tomorrow, XCOM 2 should unlock for XBone/PS4 users. However, the last tweet states that the release will be in 3 days (30th of September) internationally. But in any way, we welcome the reinforcements at any time - viva la resistance!

Ultimately i was posting ideas to a selected audiance about how they may recieve it, this was one of the more poitive feedback. It was a difficult piece and one of few times i visit my friend's studio to use his software for some digital issues so to speak. (some colouring didn't blur well)
Some ideas have changed since and maybe so has this but it was an exercise in depicting character and ideas.
