2K and Firaxis Games announced at the E3 2017 PC Gaming Show that XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, a expansion pack to the terrific XCOM 2, will be coming to Xbox One on August 29 this year.

XCOM 2 Creative Director, Jake Solomon, revealed XCOM 2: War of the Chosen on stage at the PC Gaming Show, with the following trailer:

War of the Chosen focuses on ADVENT’s bid to recapture the Commander, with deadly alien heroes being deployed called the ‘Chosen’. XCOM must approach and win over three new resistance factions, each with their own Hero class, to help combat this new threat and liberate Earth.

Firaxis continues to redefine the award-winning XCOM franchise with XCOM 2: War of the Chosen,

said Matt Gorman, VP of Marketing at 2K.

XCOM 2 fans are going to love the all-new narrative and features, enhancing the XCOM experience and providing endless reasons to re-play through the campaign.

We’re thrilled to offer our fans an unprecedented amount of cool new toys and features in XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, challenging and empowering players in exciting new ways never seen before in the franchise,

added Jake Solomon, creative director of XCOM 2 at Firaxis Games.

The expansion also includes a bunch of new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth to the strategic gameplay. Your soldiers now bond with their teammates, adding new abilities and perks as that bond grows and they’re deployed together. Meanwhile, regular community challenges with a global leaderboard extend the replayability beyond the new story content.

Some say Greg isn’t one person but a group of many people posting under the pseudonym “Greg”. No one knows for sure but either way, as long as he continues to fight the good fight of reviewing games, then we will always consider him a hero.
