Take A Look At The New Factions & Enemies In XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen

XCOM 2 was a very well received sequel to the revived turn-based tactical series last year, and as announced back at E3, it’s getting a fair bit bigger and complex later this year with the War of the Chosen expansion. 2K have released a new walkthrough trailer to show the new factions, new enemies and gameplay ideas.


In War of the Chosen, it turns out that XCOM aren’t the only resistance group fighting against the Advent alien occupiers. The Reaper, the Skirmishers and the Templars are all factions that you can tap into, as you have to face off against new evolving enemies, the Assassin, the Hunter and the Warlock. Not only that, but you’ll be heading into the devastated cities of Earth, where you’ll encounter the heavily mutated humans known as the Lost. They hate XCOM and aliens equally, which is sure to shake up the combat.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is releasing on PS4, Xbox One and PC on 29th August.

  1. I wonder if The Lost is an alternative version of EXALT and they somehow survived or stabbed aliens in the back? XALT in Enemy Within do mutate themselves(not much but they do) and this could be what they could have done if XCOM didn’t kick their suited asses all over the place.
