2K and Firaxis Games announced today that XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen, the expansion to the 2016 award-winning strategy title, is now available for the PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One, in addition to Windows PC. XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen adds new enemies, playable allies, missions, and a breadth of gameplay features to XCOM 2 that Game Informer called, “Nearly a game’s worth of new content” in their review.

The critical praise for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen has been overwhelming: Polygon named the expansion “the definitive XCOM experience,” Game Informer remarked it’s, “One of the most rewarding strategy games in years,” while IGN commented on its impact, saying XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, “Restores a fear of the unknown.”

Key features for XCOM 2:War of the Chosen include:

  • New Factions & Hero Classes: Three additional factions represent pockets of resistance to ADVENT – the Reapers, Skirmishers and Templars – each with its own Hero class can be recruited to stand with XCOM:
    • The Reapers are infiltration specialists and stealth marksmen living on the fringe of society. Reapers utilize a powerful weapon called the Vektor rifle, as well as a special Claymore explosive – a targetable incendiary device that, when placed and activated, does not cause the Reaper to break Concealment;
    • The Skirmishers are former ADVENT soldiers who have chosen to rebel against their masters. The Skirmisher is an offensive powerhouse, capable of dealing with threats running the gamut from up close to afar, armed with a grappling hook to help close distance and a wrist mounted Ripjack capable of piercing the enemy with deadly force;
    • The Templars are a reclusive, monastic group of soldiers that have dedicated themselves to pushing their minds and bodies with psionic energy to the brink of humanity, honing their psionic energy with religious fervor into powerful weapons.
  • The Chosen: These powerful adversaries are unique ADVENT enemies tasked by the Elders to recapture the Commander at all costs. Masters of asymmetrical warfare, the Chosen will kidnap, interrogate and ultimately kill XCOM’s soldiers. They can even invade the strategy layer and ravage XCOM’s global operations; The Chosen include:
    • The Hunter stalks its prey from across the map: tracking, wounding and disabling XCOM units at range;
    • The Warlock utilizes a variety of psionic abilities to sow destruction on the battlefield;
    • The Assassin are a stealth-based melee unit who prefers to fight at close range, preying upon XCOM units with her katana.
  • New Alien and ADVENT Threats: Adopt new tactics alongside the new faction allies to counter a deadly new alien known as the Spectre, the explosive attacks of the ADVENT Purifier, the psionically charged ADVENT Priest, as well as the creeping swarms of The Lost.
  • New Photo Booth: Immortalize your soldiers during their trials by creating customizable war-and-meme-worthy posters that are both sharable and can be found while in game.
  • New Environments and Mission Objectives: Players can engage in wide-ranging tactical missions, from abandoned cities devastated by alien bioweapons during the original invasion, to underground tunnels and xenoformed wilderness regions.
  • Enhanced Strategy Layer: Manage Covert Actions, Resistance Orders, and XCOM’s relations with factions while countering enemy operations from the Avenger.
  • Greater Customization & Replayability: Soldiers cultivate bonds with compatible teammates for new abilities and perks, while the SITREP system dynamically adds new modifiers to the tactical layer to make sure every mission provides a unique challenge.
  • Challenge Mode: New regular community challenges featuring unique missions not found in the campaign that rank players on a global leaderboard.

XCOM 2 is rated T for Teen by the ESRB and available for PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and Windows PC. XCOM 2 is also available for Mac and Linux by Feral Interactive. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is available now for Windows PC, PlayStation®4 system and Xbox One, and will be available for Mac and Linux by Feral Interactive at a later date.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen  looks to be the next big step for the franchise. The series has been doing well since the reboot and this looks to continue the high quality.

 

Will you be getting it?

No GravatarThe controversial WWE manager Paul Heyman unveiled to the world yesterday, a new trailer covering the “My Career” game mode for the upcoming WWE 2K17 game.

Normally the publisher 2K Games would release the trailer, but there is a twist as to why Mr. Heyman was the one to unveil the trailer. This year’s version of the game, the created character can become a Paul Heyman guy. After the player creates their character, they would be shipped off to The WWE Performance Center for training and a chance to join the NXT ranks. This is where the game takes a bold twist, becoming a Paul Heyman guy, bypassing all of that and immediately become a WWE superstar, but of course the character will be at odds with WWE management.

Under Mr. Heyman’s tutelage, the player will learn the skills to help along with becoming the number one WWE superstar, learning how to cut promos, selling merchandise to help push the character’s popularity among other things.

Though be careful, as if you make the wrong decisions or go against Heyman and the player may just be faced with the Beast Incarnate himself, Brock Lesnar who will take you to Suplex City.

Check this out and much more about WWE 2K17 “My Career” game mode in the trailer below. Perhaps I’ll see you in the ring soon.
