You might have noticed that we are pretty excited for the War of the Chosen expansion for XCOM 2. We even gave it a nod for Best Strategy game of E3 2017.  Today we get a deeper look at the Warlock – just one of The Chosen being unleashed on The Resistance in the war for global supremacy, courtesy of a video series that promises an inside look into the enemies, new features, and development insights from the team at Firaxis Games.

The Warlock is one of three new hero classes for The Chosen — the Hunter and Assassin rounding out the other two. Joining them are four new regular soldiers – a Priest, Purifier, Spectre, and The Lost. Thankfully, the human race isn’t completely overmatched, bringing three new classes to The Resistance — Skirmishers, Reapers, and Templars.

There’s a wealth of new information on the expansion on the official site, including some of the bios for these new friends and foes.

You can rejoin the war on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC on August 29th, 2017 when the War of the Chosen pack ships.
