It's not long now until "War of the Chosen" launches for XCOM 2
and the team at Firaxis is still revealing new information about the expansion. The latest reveal is a new mode: Challenge Mode.
This challenge mode will provide an alternate take on XCOM 2
's normal gameplay with players tasked with trying to get the highest score possible on a one-off map. Points will mainly be earned by taking out enemies, accomplishing objectives and keeping your squad alive. In this mode, you won't always necessarily play as the humans either, with the potential for alien-based squads on show in the trailer.
"War of the Chosen" will be available for XCOM 2
on August 29th.
