XCOM 2: Alien Hunters goes live

12 May 2016 1

One of the best games of 2016 thus far is Firaxis' tactical combat juggernaut, XCOM 2. It manages to add new content and wrinkles to the combat while still feeling like it belongs in the XCOM universe. I've played it a ton, only stopping lately so I can ping-pong between games of Twilight Struggle and Pathfinder Adventures. Looks like I might be headed back to the war against ADVENT, as Firaxis has just released new DLC for the game, Alien Hunters.

Alien Hunters adds a ton of cosmetic upgrades for both your soldiers and your base of command, the Avenger. More interestingly, it adds alien Rulers to the game. These are unique boss aliens that will pursue your squad all over the world in their attempt to eradicate it. It also adds a new epic mission led by Captain Green Sweater himself, Officer Bradford. If you ever wanted to kick butt with Bradford (and, has anyone ever really wanted this?) now you can.

The DLC is available right now on Steam and costs $10. If you haven't picked up the base game yet, what are you waiting for? Head over to Steam and give it a go.
