XCOM 2: War of the Chosen - The Hunter


The Elders are desperate to recapture the Commander in XCOM 2’s expansion. Among the Chosen tasked with finding the Commander: The Hunter, a ranged unit that can stalk its prey from across the map.

The Hunter revels in slowly tracking, wounding and disabling XCOM units in his crosshairs before striking the final blow. He grows bolder as he sees XCOM blood spilled, but his supreme confidence in his abilities means that he may underestimate your resolve..even as the Hunter actively taunts you on the battlefield.



The Hunter can perch in unusual places thanks to the use of his grappling hook.  From those hunting blinds, it can fire a Tracking Shot and target an XCOM solider from wherever they hide on the map. As soon as you see the laser-sighting beam, you have one turn to break line of sight before he takes the shot. The Hunter has also been known to toy with prey using Concussion Grenades and Tranquilizer Shots. Like his siblings, the real threat to your mission is that the Hunter will abduct your troops, interrogate them and try to discover the Avenger’s location.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen - The Templar



XCOM 2’s expansion introduces new Factions, unique pockets of resistance unaffiliated with XCOM. Today we’re introducing the Templars, a reclusive, monastic group of soldiers that has dedicated themselves to pushing their minds and bodies with psionic energy to the brink of humanity.

https://youtu.be/XyAQdUn46Sk


The Templars – led by Geist, one of the original Psionic soldiers – stayed away from ADVENT and their city centers after surviving the fall of the XCOM Project. In their isolation, they developed an almost religious zeal for collecting Psionic energy. Experimenting upon themselves, they even created weaponry that taps into their latent skills. As ADVENT and the Chosen Warlock begin siphoning Psionic energy across the planet, the Templars are now preparing to strike back.



While the Templar unit can use Autopistols, it is primarily a front-line fighter, easily recognizable by the Psionic blades they wield. Those lethal blades, though, are just an extension of a Templar, amped with Psionic and area-effect skills.



Their abilities get triggered through the use of Focus, a combat mechanic that builds over the course of a fight. Focus enables the Templar to perform superhuman feats such as increasing damage output and mobility. They don’t start off as superhuman, though – it’s about making tradeoff choices on the battlefield: Does the Templar charge Focus to unleash more devastating attacks? Or does the Templar maintain that Focus and boost its general combat effectiveness?  



With experience, the Templar learns some incredible Psionic skills, but even initiates possess “Volt”– a Psionic attack that can chain to nearby foes at higher levels. Over time, Templars have been known to unleash Ionic Storm, a massive wave of lightning that will assault nearby foes. Some have trained to create a Pillar of solid energy and use it as cover. Those that further develop their abilities can warp reality and Exchange positions with other XCOM soldiers on the game map. These are just a few of the many known Templar skills.

About This Game

XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year.

Earth has changed. Twenty years have passed since world leaders offered an unconditional surrender to alien forces. XCOM, the planet’s last line of defense, was left decimated and scattered. Now, in XCOM 2, the aliens rule Earth, building shining cities that promise a brilliant future for humanity on the surface, while concealing a sinister agenda and eliminating all who dissent from their new order.

Only those who live at the edges of the world have a margin of freedom. Here, a force gathers once again to stand up for humanity. Always on the run, and facing impossible odds, the remnant XCOM forces must find a way to ignite a global resistance, and eliminate the alien threat once and for all.

  • XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.
  • RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.
  • TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.
  • A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.
  • RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.
  • EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.
  • CREATE CUSTOM MODS: Community-focused tools allow you to create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop.
  • ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.
