XCOM 2: War of the Chosen Lost and Abandoned/Warlock Videos

By Dave Bricker, 10 months ago
Firaxis and 2K Games released two new videos for the upcoming DLC of XCOM 2. The videos feature the new DLC called “War of the Chosen.”


The first video features a basic explanation of the story of “War of the Chosen” by Garth DeAngelis, senior producer of the DLC at Firaxis. We’re introduced to three competing factions who must learn to work together to counter the Lost and Abandoned (think of something similiar to zombies). The three factions are Reapers, Sharpshooters, and Skirmishers. We get the opportunity to become briefly acquainted with Outrider, a Reaper, and Mox, a Skirmisher. We get to see some more about how the Lost are able to group together to attack, some tactics to take down the groups of Lost, and The Assassin, a Chosen who tries to counter the player. We are also given an opportunity to briefly glimpse the plot of “War of the Chosen.”

This video introduces us to Warlock, a mysterious alien with mysterious powers.

“War of the Chosen” is scheduled to release on August 29th.
