XCOM 2: Pavonis Interactive Q&A on Long War 2



Long War 2, the total conversion mod for XCOM 2, is available right now! We wanted to find out more about its creator, Pavonis Interactive (formerly known as Long War Studios). Thankfully, John Lumpkin, design lead and managing partner, was kind enough to answer a few questions for us!

http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=844674609

Thanks for doing this, John. First, can you tell us what your exact position at Pavonis Interactive is?

We got to make up our own titles! I’m the design lead. Also a managing partner. And public relations coordinator. And rookie-killing sadist.



How did Pavonis Interactive form?

Its informal beginning was when my partner Rachel “Amineri” Norman contacted me in early 2013 with some suggestions on how to dig into XCOM Enemy Unknown's code to make grenades a little less reliable. We started modding EU and then EW together with the help of several other talented programmers. We formed Long War Studios as a company as we got to work on our own title and shortly before signing a contract to develop the release-day mods for XCOM 2. With the release of Long War 2, we are rechristening our company Pavonis Interactive to capture that our future work will range beyond modding XCOM and toward developing our own independent titles. “Long War” will be indelibly linked with XCOM.

What are you and your team most proud of in Long War 2?

We think we’ve recreated a lot of the “Long War” feel in the XCOM 2 engine, although we tried to peg full campaigns at around 100 to 120 missions, which isn’t quite as many as the original.

In your own words, can you briefly describe how you’ve changed the Strategy Layer?

We’ve made a lot of changes. ADVENT now has a certain strength in each region on Earth, and it will move troops around in response to XCOM activity. This strength will determine how hard missions will be. This encourages XCOM to build a global Resistance and strike where ADVENT is weakest, just as a proper insurgency should.

In addition, in each region you’ve made contact with, you assign Resistance members to various jobs in a Haven: scavenging supplies, recruiting more rebels and soldiers, or gathering intelligence to generate missions. Many missions have set durations, and you must send a squad to infiltrate the target site over several days. The longer you infiltrate, the fewer enemies you will face, but larger squads need more time to sneak into the mission area.

Finally, it is now possible to liberate regions entirely from ADVENT control. Doing so will grant bonuses in resource gathering and more importantly trigger the AVATAR plot missions, but ADVENT will try to take them back.



How did you conceptualize and execute on these changes? Did you always have a vision in mind or is it something you guys stumbled upon by testing out different mechanics?

The general ideas of a hit-and-run insurgency and having mission difficulty scale both with strategic conditions as well as squad size are things we’ve had from the start. The general idea behind the infiltration mechanic was to replace our fatigue mechanic from the original Long War – we want to tie up your soldiers and force you to develop a deeper roster, and frankly the infiltration mechanic works better narratively than fatigue to fulfill this purpose, especially in a guerrilla war narrative. We also wanted to make squad size something organically determined rather than a straight set of upgrades you acquire over a campaign. Now, the extra flexibility provided by bringing 10 soldiers on a mission has costs, so it’s ultimately up to the player to decide how they want to take on a mission.

In your own words, can you briefly describe how you’ve changed the Tactical Mission gameplay?

We’ve implemented, and in many cases improved on, most of the content from our prior mods . We’ve also added an additional soldier class, the Technical, who can specialize in either the rocket launcher or flamethrower wrist weapons, which are available from the start. Each of our new classes has its own secondary weapon: The Sharpshooter has a holo-targeter, the Ranger a sawed-off shotgun, the Assault an arc thrower, and the Gunner a combat knife for self-defense. (We’re allowing all classes to equip pistols.) In addition, we’ve reworked the AWC bonus perk system to give each soldier a randomized mini-tree of offensive, defensive and pistol perks they can train, but they have to spend several days in the training tube to acquire the additional abilities.

We’ve added several mission types – ambushing a troop column, attacking an ADVENT military base, and rescuing multiple rebels from a jail, to name a few. We did try to add more pitched battles alongside the timed missions.

We’ve also made officers more integral to tactical play. They have the Command ability from Long War; they also provide bonuses to soldiers whom they have been on several missions with, and they have the ability to spend the intel resource to extend the timers on timed missions.

What else? All of Alien Pack is in there, plus some new ADVENT bad guys, sometimes in pods of up to eight enemies. Uncontacted enemy pods will now behave differently, sometimes trying to flank your squad or moving to defend the objective. The Skyranger now takes several turns to arrive when you throw the flare.



Which of the new mission types is your favorite and why?

Probably a toss-up between our alternate Haven defense mission, in which you have to defend an extraction zone in the center of the map while holding off increasingly strong Alien reinforcements and rescuing your rebels, and the invasion, when ADVENT tries to re-take a region. It functions something like a retaliation mission, but in a city.

What are you and the team most proud of in your changes to the Tactical gameplay?

I polled our playtesters, led by the illustrious Tim “Bilfdoffle” Evans, and they offered the following:

  • The AWC/officer perks creating unique soldiers
  • Corpse reanimation by unactivated sectoids
  • Yellow alert and pod job mechanics
  • The coil cannon
  • All the new missions
  • Changes to evac timer and meta around stealthier missions/
  • Controlling Rebels and Civs
  • Defending the Evac
  • The new Arc Thrower

Thank you for your time, John!

XCOM 2: Long War 2 Mod Adds New Missions on PC


Long War 2, the upcoming XCOM 2 mod for PC from Pavonis Interactive, presents a series of changes to the game’s campaign. One such change is the introduction of new tactical mission scenarios.


While engaging in operations around the globe, your XCOM soldiers will encounter new and more varied counter-operations from ADVENT forces. These new mission types support the expanded strategy layer within the Long War 2 mod and gives ADVENT new abilities like being able to spawn unlimited reinforcements during some missions.

Here are the new mission types:

  • Jailbreak – XCOM must infiltrate an ADVENT jail and rescue key Resistance members. Success increases the strength of the Resistance in that region.
  • Haven Defense – A variation on Retaliation missions where XCOM must defend Resistance members against an onslaught of ADVENT forces until the Skyranger can get into position for extraction.
  • ADVENT Base Assault – XCOM must deploy to and overtake a well-defended regional military headquarters.
  • Invasion – ADVENT attempts to retake a liberated region by assaulting a city center. XCOM must destroy a psionic relay that summons continuous reinforcements, then eliminate any remaining forces.
  • Rendezvous – A Faceless disguised as a member of the Resistance is detected as it goes to meet with its ADVENT handlers and XCOM must hunt it down.
  • ADVENT Supply Raid – XCOM must defend a supply convoy and its Resistance personnel from ADVENT attacks.
  • ADVENT Intel Raid – ADVENT attacks a Resistance listening post and XCOM must repel the attack.
  • ADVENT Recruiting Raid – ADVENT forces attack Resistance recruiters within a region. XCOM must extract those Resistance members.


Additionally, the Skyranger now takes time to arrive at a mission site for extraction in Long War 2, and ADVENT reinforcements have become more dangerous overall. Keep this in mind before deploying on one of these new missions, Commander.


Pavonis Interactive, formerly Long War Studios, is the development outfit responsible for great XCOM 2 PC content such as the “Alien Pack” and the “Perk” and “Laser Pack” mods.  

That’s it for this update, Commander. Be sure to follow XCOM on Twitter and Like XCOM on Facebook to keep up to date with the latest information on XCOM 2. If you’re looking to enlist with the Resistance, join the 2K Forums!

À propos de ce jeu

XCOM 2 est la suite de XCOM: Enemy Unknown, le jeu de stratégie salué par la critique et élu jeu de l'année 2012.

La Terre a changé. Vingt années se sont écoulées depuis que les dirigeants du monde entier ont accepté de se rendre sans condition aux forces extraterrestres, et les membres d'XCOM, la dernière ligne de défense de la planète, se sont retrouvés décimés. Aujourd'hui, dans XCOM 2, les extraterrestres règnent sur la Terre ; ils y construisent des villes rutilantes qui promettent un avenir brillant à l'humanité, tout en dissimulant leurs sombres desseins et en faisant abattre les moindres dissidents qui tenteraient de s'opposer à leur ordre nouveau.

Seuls ceux vivants aux frontières du monde disposent encore d'une certaine marge de liberté. C'est là qu'une force tente de se regrouper afin de défendre l'humanité. En cavale perpétuelle et malgré des défis insurmontables, XCOM va devoir trouver un moyen de mettre sur pied une résistance mondiale et d'éliminer la menace extraterrestre une bonne fois pour toute.

  • XCOM EN CAVALE : prenez le contrôle du Talion, un vaisseau de ravitaillement extraterrestre reconverti en QG mobile d'XCOM. Un nouveau gameplay ouvert vous permet de choisir où envoyer votre équipe d'assaut, comment obtenir l'appui de la population, et quand combattre les contre-opérations ennemies.
  • RECRUTEZ DES COMBATTANTS POUR LA RÉSISTANCE : avec cinq classes de soldat, disposant chacune de compétences propres, vous allez pouvoir créer des soldats spécifiques à vos stratégies.
  • GUÉRILLA TACTIQUE : découvrez de nouveaux systèmes de jeu, pour une plus grande souplesse stratégique en combat. Cachez-vous pour tendre une embuscade à une patrouille ennemie, pillez les corps de vos adversaires pour récupérer du matériel et des artefacts, et sauvez des VIP et des camarades blessés en les conduisant jusqu'au point d'extraction.
  • DE NOUVEAUX ENNEMIS : retrouvez des ennemis très variés, entre nouvelles races extraterrestres surpuissantes et soldats chargés de faire respecter le régime d'ADVENT, pour un défi tactique inédit.
  • ÉTUDIEZ, DÉVELOPPEZ, AMÉLIOREZ : configurez et construisez des salles sur le Talion, de façon à offrir de nouvelles compétences à vos soldats sur le champ de bataille. Utilisez vos scientifiques et vos ingénieurs pour étudier, développer et améliorer vos armes et armures en fonction de la stratégie voulue.
  • CHAQUE MISSION EST UN DÉFI UNIQUE : partez en mission aux quatre coins de la planète, entre terrains vagues au coeur des mégapoles extraterrestres et sous-sols de leurs complexes les plus secrets. Les combinaisons de cartes, de missions et d'objectifs sont virtuellement infinies !
  • CRÉEZ DES MODS PERSONNALISÉS : grâce à des outils spécialement conçus pour la communauté, créez vos propres campagnes, stratégies, extraterrestres, classes et fonctionnalités, puis partagez-les via Steam Workshop.
  • AFFRONTEZ D'AUTRES JOUEURS EN LIGNE : mélangez escouades humaines et extraterrestres, et affrontez d'autres joueurs sur des cartes générées aléatoirement.
