jake is so woke, i hope he is doing satire on the real world media.

Love to see at least some stuff in Xcom (personality, compatibility) that is similar to such a legendary GEM of a game that was Jagged Alliance 2. Never got a decent remake, sadly.

I am hoping for a day 1 mod to shut up the comments by the chosen. I AM SURE MANY MORE ARE ALREADY ROLLING THEIR EYES AND GOING "WHY!? WE ALL HATE THE INGAME COMMENTS BY THE NPCS SO WHY!?" If nothing comes out, I may be tempted to cheating just so I can kill them asap JUST TO SHUT THEM UP If you are adding content, how about adding soldier voices in other languages? Russian and Japanese are fan favorites.

probably stay on medium for my own sanity. only game I got where I call it bullshit. tried legend once and I was wiped out after 4 missions

XCom 2 is the bomb of all strategy games. Expert gamers cured the game because their favorite hero/heroin got fucked. That's right! They are experts in RELOADING the game.
Jamescrab (9 months ago)
balort santa I can't understand your comment

Something that sounds like it will not be on the console version lol

Jon-John Pinckney I know, I meant the photo booth thing lol... Sorry I should have made that Clear

uuuuh, i was about to start a new ampaign on legendary and ironman again...i'm looking forward to do that with the new stuff coming up :)
Jitterzz (10 months ago)
This sounds really cool having people talk to you more in the Geoscape. It'll almost feel something like Starcraft in the XCOM universe, which sounds incredibly fitting.

Soldiers with enough missions together develop bromances.
Steel Bear (9 months ago)
There's gotta be a mod where two soldiers fucking in Commander's quaters and you can scare them by looking with that ant-farm view
Adam Shalashaska (10 months ago)
Are you able to force a bond? or make two characters to be compatible? I want me and my best friend to perform special moves not one of my other friends lol
Clyde Marshall (10 months ago)
XCOM 2 is amazing, but I would like XCOM 3 to be based on if you actually won the first game. Humanity has learned and is much more well prepared but the aliens have learned too and will try again. I think that would be pretty cool. But over all, who could complain about more XCOM? I am really looking forward to this expansion.
Jason cv (10 months ago)
So is this expansion part of the season pass or is there a separate cost for it?
koolerpure (10 months ago)
love it, too bad xcom 2 crashes like its going out of style in the middle of missions or just at the end
Nicholas Ogburn (10 months ago)
You got a lot of these ideas from the mod workshop didn't you? I know the bond system was programmed in before by modders.
Hans Hafeez (10 months ago)
hell yeah stealing idea from Phoenix Point about their limb system would be awsome if implemented to xcom2!!!!
Akaritomi (10 months ago)
XCOM 2 will now feature social link events for your soldiers. Take them out on dates, play games with them, compliment their outfits, help them with their deep rooted problems and self hatred. Then when you max out they gain their ultimate persona and access amazing skills while on mission.... if only it was this deep a concept lmao.

Xcom 2: The Sims.
<That's so poser!
Hell shadow (10 months ago)
i really like all this stuff but can we make preset teams like in multi player with single player troops so that we remember who all is a team or is something like this implemented?
RoNPlayer (10 months ago)
They haven't announced such a thing. But i mean, like, you could just grab a piece of paper and write it down? It would be neat to save loadouts in regards to equip, tho.
Rocco Sato (10 months ago)
If one of my female soldiers hits S rank bonds with another male soldier, can they have a kid who can share their stats? Are there any special cutscenes between certain soldiers, like, what about the sibling soldiers? Hey, is there a difference between XCOM Conquest and XCOM Birthright? CAN I NON-SEXUALLY PAT MY SNIPER'S HEAD AFTER A GOOD MISSION? I'm joking of course, the bonding stuff does sound genuinely fun.
Gay (9 months ago)
Im looking forward to XCOM Revelations
Sugoi Use Is Moe Abuse (10 months ago)
Ha ha ha good one, Who would want to headpat Sniper kun's super soft locks ha ha ha...
skynet091287 (10 months ago)
As long as we actually get to DO something with the global resistance we gather throughout the game, i'm pretty much good... It always feels like you need to rush to expand, but it always seemed so sterile when you did, as the resistance fighters you apparently free, never actually does anything for you during the game... I think each country you expand too should give you a random class resistance fighter with basic gear randomly placed on the map of each mission, who then takes their own "resistance turn" seperate from you and the Advent turns, and you can see their field of vision, so when a resistance fighter engages the enemy, your own cover won't be blown, and you can kinda use them as random decoys if you play your cards right, but can also get massivly screwed if they aggro Advent into you! Also, they really should integrate the "true conceilment" mod into the game, where the turn timer only starts going down when you lose conceilment!
Rick Khemai (10 months ago)
after so many tears shed i finally have beaten xcom 2. and now i hear there is a expansion coming. damn you Solomon for making me cry again
Maksie0 (10 months ago)
I initially read the thumbnail as "Soldiers BONED in XCOM 2 expansion", which I think is probably true as well.
myselfalan (10 months ago)
Damn that interviewer is hot
OpinionDay007 (10 months ago)
I hope all this talking by the new characters is not going to get a little annoying when you are playing for the 5th time ... or 450 hours like me.... totally addicted
Rolk Flameraven (10 months ago)
Oh crap, they added stamina back in and it can give my troops OCD! One way to force me to get even more troops I guess.
tahna dana (10 months ago)
soldiers who talk with each other, that was my idea!!!..haahaha
imcoming 4u (10 months ago)
well this be on a disc or downloaded?
Abraham Deras (10 months ago)
Todd Kelly /// DLC download you need Xcom2 to play War of the chosen
Tucker Cooper (10 months ago)
Either a mod or option to make compatible bonds would be appreciated
Luiz Cezar (10 months ago)
xcom is going full fire emblem lol
Rein Azrael (10 months ago)
Lol the reload addict perk, see that alot in R6 siege. Too real Solomon too real
Grim Knight (10 months ago)
New missions, new story, new units, new enemies, new characters, new features. Expansion done right.
Nanomachines Son! (9 months ago)
I still miss my MEC and gene mod soldiers
Grim Knight (9 months ago)
As long as it's DLC and not something sold entirely seperately I'm on board.
Jon-John Pinckney (9 months ago)
Grim Knight community is already calling this expansion XCOM 3
poke (10 months ago)
Theory time: one of the new factions is exalt.
Serdiuk Paul (9 months ago)
EXALT are either dead or folded into ADVENT. If they tried to turn against the aliens, they would be crushed. If they joined them, there is no reason to keep them separate from the main body of collaborators. However, I, too, would have liked to see some of those influential people the Councilman talked about organise their own armed resistance cells.
poke (10 months ago)
+Siodog really is that confirmed? They're just dead?
Siodog (10 months ago)
exalt were the earth soldiers actually you killed as the commander when the aliens got you
Connor Griffith (10 months ago)
sadly not
Kyle Creitz (10 months ago)

Bonds sounds awesome, I love bondage.
FrancoFromSpace (10 months ago)
(͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Ghostx357 (10 months ago)
are the soldiers bonding going to have dialogue between them?
Jon-John Pinckney I think it'll work like the opposite to lone wolf, you get bonuses if you're less than a certain distance away from your buddy.
Jon-John Pinckney (9 months ago)
goodness, I hope they have statuses to these bonds, like love and battle buddies. that would make it even more amazing.
Henbot (10 months ago)
Ghostx357 that can be added by modders
spforevr11 (10 months ago)
almost certainly some mod will add some level of it if the devs don't
Rinalds Raivo Romanovskis (10 months ago)
Well, it'd be stange if they didnt have anything to say about the ambush mission, if they're sent there. I think it's likely, but I'm not the dev so I don't know :p
ZenodudeMC (10 months ago)
Damn was hoping he'd say the radio DJ was gonna be the voice of Three Dog (Erik Todd Delums)

poke (10 months ago)
