Firaxis Games have released a new trailer for the upcoming ‘War of the Chosen’ expansion for XCOM 2. This trailer introduces us to a new faction joining in the fight against ADVENT and showcases some of the weapons and skills at their disposal. Watch it below…
The Reapers are a fierce group of fighters that operate in areas outside of ADVENT control. Using stealth techniques without sacrificing attack power make the Reapers a valuable asset in the fight against the Chosen.
Reapers have access to the Shadow Concealment ability which allows their field agents to stay concealed even after firing a shot unlike XCOM operatives. Weapons of choice for the Reapers are the powerful Vektor Rifle and the explosive claymores which can be detonated by any soldier once it has been placed. Using the Homing Mine ability, Reapers can attach a claymore to their enemies effectively turning them into walking landmines.
Skills such as Silent Killer and Distraction are available to Reapers and enhance their stealth capabilities by helping them remain hidden for longer or becoming concealed quicker.
The Reapers will be available with the release of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen on the 29th August on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.
