XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen, is the expansion to the 2016 award-winning strategy game of the year.

XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen adds extensive new content in the fight against ADVENT when additional resistance factions form in order to eliminate the alien threat on Earth. In response, a new enemy, known as the “Chosen,” emerges with one goal: recapture the Commander. This expansion includes new Hero classes to counter the “Chosen”, new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay.

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.

  2. Might just be the finest expansion ever
    by Batavorn, Netherlands - Dec 6th 2018

    This expansion offers a massive amount of content. New soldiers and equipment allow for new and different playstyles. New mechanics force even experienced commanders to change up their playstyle and of course the Chosen themselves are very dangerous and interesting opponents. Best of all, this dlc doesn't just add new things, but it makes an already great game better in almost every way.

  3. Must buy for XCOM2 players
    by João Costa, Portugal - Dec 2nd 2018

    XCOM2 WOTC is one of the best expansions ever made. It completely revamps the base while adding more content. THe biggest changes are:
    - 3 new bosses that evolve while hunting you;
    - 3 new "hero" classes
    - a ton of more assets for the levels, making them more unpredictable
    - revamp on a lot of mechancis such as the timers, skils of your troops,etc.

    In my opinion the only major problem oif this DLC is that it assumes that you played XCOM2, as such it increases the dificulty of the game quite a bit. This is way i recomend this DLC for XCOM2 players, new players starting XCOM should probably play with this disabled on the first playthrough.

  4. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen
    by XXXXXXXXX, United Kingdom - Nov 23rd 2018

    This is probably one of the best expansion packs I've ever played. It upgrades the vanilla game to a whole new experience. It's almost a whole new game, with all the cool mechanics and gameplay changes. On the surface, changes may seem trivial, but there's a lot once you actually start playing.

  10. Whole new game
    by Bogdan R., Romania - Feb 19th 2018

    XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is a DLC only in name; it's actually a whole revamp, an expansion pack. It adds so much content that it's worth the price.

  11. Interesting, but not what xcom needed
    by David Ballantyne, Sweden - Feb 1st 2018

    The Chosen make interesting foes, briefly. The problem is, xcom2 is a game that wants to be replayed, but the more scripted stuff they add the more annoying it gets to replay. Every game thereafter your crew are mystified by these story beats which you the player already know the answers too. Firaxis need to decide if they are making a cinematic 'play once' game, or a semi-randomised replayer, because mixing the two just doesn't work.

    The Lost are more of the same, every single time they appear you get the little 'oh! zombies! gasp!' reaction clip, but this can happen dozens or hundreds of times during a campaign. Fighting them is as repetitive as their forced reaction clip, mostly they have low HP and can be chainkilled. Like they are so numerous and yet easy to kill, a new mechanic was added where oneshotting them counts as a free action, It's pretty tedious, but at least some mods exist to automatically shoot all the oneshottable Lost.

    The new classes and factions are fun to play with, but the powers they give you hasn't been matched by an increase in difficulty, so they allow you to dominate the already outclasses aliens even harder than before.

    by Ricardo S.4, Portugal - Dec 26th 2017

    by todgal, Bulgaria - Dec 26th 2017

    This expansion changes the game mechanics and fix a lot of exploits. In original game you can beat it with all squad of just one type of soldiers. Now they adapt and you need to adapt too. Also it adds a lot of new content.
