The XCOM 2 War of the Chosen World Premiere Trailer was just shown at the PC Gaming Show live from E3 in Los Angeles.
“The fight against ADVENT continues 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 to the 2016 award-winning strategy game of the year includes new Hero classes to counter the “Chosen”, new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay. Requires XCOM 2 to play”.
The Chosen will have the ability to learn new skills and abilities. One class in the Chosen that we saw is the Assassin. The Assassin is bound by the values of duty and honour and in combat she is a mix of stealth and close combat. For example, she can vanish and then re-appear to take out enemies. Each of the classes in the Chosen will have powerful and, more importantly, unique fighting styles. Other classes will include the Hunter (a long-range sniper) and the Warlock class.
Paradox Interactive typically host an annual event for members of the press to converge on a single location and try out everything the group has up their sleeves. This year it opened to the public with just as much to share as before: like snatching up Jon Shafer for a new project.
