Jake Solomon, Creative Director of XCOM 2, came to the PC Gaming Show to announce the expansion, which revolves around the chosen. The chosen were designed to be the ultimate threat to XCOM, and the player will fight the chosen multiple times over the course of the game. The chosen will grow over the course of the game along with the player. The Assassin uses invisibility and close combat, the Hunter is a long-range sniper, and the Warlock will have magic skills. You can also recruit them to XCOM and use them against them.

The Lost is a new enemy type that are zombified citizens who attack in large swarms who are drawn to the sound of combat. However, they don’t like aliens either and will attack them.

Comes out August 29 on PC, Xbox One, and PS4.
