2K and Firaxis have released a gameplay walkthrough for the upcoming expansion of 2016’s XCOM 2. The expansion, titled XCOM 2: War of the Chosen introduces “The Chosen” a new enemy hellbent on recapturing the Commander. Three new factions have been added, The Templars, Skirmishers and Reapers, who will pool together to strengthen the Earth’s defence.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen adds new enemies, environments, missions and deeper strategy to the game. In the gameplay trailer below you can check out The Reapers and Skirmishers teaming up to battle The Lost and one of The Chosen. These new enemies pose uniquely different threats with The Chosen getting stronger with each battle and The Lost being drawn to combat able to swarm the player. The trailer goes into each class’ unique abilities. The Reapers are sharpshooters and masters of concealment while the Skirmishers were once ADVENT soldiers.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen will release August 29 on PS4 Xbox One and PC and will be twice the size of previous expansions.
