XCOM 2 News



  • XCOM 2’s expansion introduces the Chosen, unique ADVENT enemies tasked by the Elders to recapture the Commander at all costs. Today, we’re introducing the Assassin, a stealth-based melee unit who prefers to fight at close range.

    The Assassin considers her tactics honorable, but often exudes a demeanor of self-importance. She believes humanity to be beneath her, and this inflated sense of self-worth is in part due to her status among the Elders but also due to her unmatched skills in combat.

    The Assassin, and her siblings, present some persistent threats to War of the Chosen’s expanded campaign. They kidnap your soldiers, grow stronger over a campaign, and can even sabotage the Avenger. Each Chosen presents its own set of tactical strengths and weaknesses that dynamically generate with each new campaign. They’ll even taunt you if they’ve managed to escape a previous scuffle and come back for more.



    The Assassin has mastered the katana and almost exclusively fights with it alone. Her ability to vanish from sight allows her to get in close on unsuspecting soldiers for a powerful slash. The Assassin can also stun and disorient groups of soldiers with Harbor Wave, an ability that sends a flood of psionic force from a distance.

  • We’re excited to announce XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, the expansion to the 2016 award-winning strategy game of the year, is launching on PC, Xbox One and PlayStation® 4 on August 29, 2017.

    XCOM 2: War of the Chosen greatly expands upon the XCOM 2 campaign by adding three new resistance factions, each with its own Hero class, to aid XCOM in its fight to liberate Earth. ADVENT, in its bid to recapture the Commander, responds by deploying a deadly new enemy force called the “Chosen.” The expansion also includes other new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay.

    Here is a list of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen’s key features:

    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. 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, each with unique strengths and weaknesses that will be introduced with each new campaign. The Chosen are on the hunt for the Commander and will kidnap, interrogate, and kill XCOM’s soldiers to complete their objective. 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, has snuck onto the battlefield. Adopt new tactics to counter it as well as  the explosive attacks of the ADVENT Purifier and the psionically charged ADVENT Priest.

    NEW ENVIRONMENTS AND MISSION OBJECTIVES

    Engage in tactical missions across new environments from abandoned cities devastated by alien bioweapons during the original invasion, to underground tunnels and xenoformed wilderness regions.

    ENHANCED STRATEGY LAYER

    Manage XCOM’s relations with factions and counter The Chosen’s operations from the Avenger. Employ new Resistance Orders to prioritize your personal strategy. Soldiers, scientists, and engineers can now be deployed for Covert Actions that award supplies and boost faction favor if successfully completed.

    GREATER CUSTOMIZATION & REPLAYABILITY

    Soldiers can develop bonds with compatible teammates for new abilities and perks. The SITREP system dynamically adds new modifiers to the tactical layer to make sure every mission provides a unique challenge. Advanced campaign options allow for finer adjustments to game length and difficulty.

    CHALLENGE MODE

    Utilize the perfect strategy in new regular one-shot community challenges to claim the top spot on the global leaderboard.

    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.

    Follow the conversation on social media by using the hashtag #XCOM2, and be sure to follow XCOM on social media to keep up to date with the latest news and information on War of the Chosen.

    I just had an idea... What if there was a mod, that makes it so a soldier you recruit through Havens has a tiny % chance to be a faceless... and plays as any other soldier throughout the game, BUT he has a 0.05% chance to let loose the flabs of war and turn on you each turn he's in play.

    Can you imagine having a guy with you up to MSGT, and then just... get betrayed all of a sudden by your top dog? MOR BALATEN!

  • If you just bought xcom 2 or going to because of the price drop enjoy the core version and only go for mods outside the main DLC's once the chosen expansion is up and running, out of experience any updates to a game can conflict a mod. And while xcom is now onw of the more moddable games be wary of investing mods just yet, at least for another few months.If you just bought xcom 2 or going to because of the price drop enjoy the core version and only go for mods outside the main DLC's once the chosen expansion is up and running, out of experience any updates to a game can conflict a mod.

    Some things sound a bit weird, e.g. "A whole month you had this?" -> "You had this a whole month?". "Your throwing" must be either "You're throwing" or "You are throwing"; "You should, were" -> either "You should, we're" or "You should, we are".Some things sound a bit weird, e.g. "A whole month you had this?" -> "You had this a whole month?".

    On that part it's my fault, while I asked for a spelling check and not so much as check on my style of writing where I admit my grammar could be better.

    A lot of it is down to me not having academic related work (even clerical duties involve short bullet point writing) it is actually how I speak. And other being I was in a rough class group for most of my learning years. I would love to do adult learning evening classes to brush up my writing but not many exist because of well, cutbacks really.

    I'll take onboard next time, though the next two pages will actually have no dialogue.

    A basic sketch for faleg's LP featuring Dan Texan the only good xcom officer to rebel and bring in the glory that is ADVENT. And with him is Carl, a genuine ADVENT peacekeeper talking about a terrible crime that was clearly commited by this "Faleg" This likely my only sketch for faleg's lp due to time contraints. Still here it is.

    We'll just have to capture Dan Texan and ask him about it, don't we?

    Probabrly not that long i think but i reckon the mods for long war will hold back a bit till people have overplayed that game as it is.
