New factions, enemies and sects will be coming for your squad.
Firaxis announced at the PC Gaming Show that XCOM 2 would be receiving a brand new expansion called War of the Chosen. Releasing on August 29th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, the expansion will feature a system that’s very similar to Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor’s Nemesis system.
Basically, you’ll be fighting against an enemy known as the Chosen, dubbed the “ultimate enemy of XCOM.” As you battle enemies, if you don’t finish them off, they’ll come back to fight you with new abilities and renewed strength.
The expansion will also have various sects and factions to interact with battles, like the Lost. These are Zombie-ish humans that will swarm battles at the first sound of fighting and will battle everyone involved.
It will be interesting to see how XCOM 2: War of the Chosen will add on to the base game. Time will tell so stay tuned for more updates as E3 2017 progresses.
