The Reveal of XCOM 2 War of the Chosen New Enemies
XCOM 2 War of the Chosen new enemies were announced by Firaxis. The new enemies may seem like regular ground units to some but, they are sure to make the game harder to beat. You must still watch your back whenever they are around.
With their own special skills and weapons, players must be at the ready for these new enemies, the Purifier, Spectre, and Priest.
When facing swarms of the Lost, these bad guys are the answer. The Purifier can cause low, continuous damage in wide areas using their flame thrower. Far reaching damage is also available by using their incendiary grenades. Players must keep their distance because, when these enemies die they explode and cause damage.
The Spectre are humanoid aliens that have lightning fast reflexes and can turn into a black nanorobotic cloud and actually disappear into thin air. They have a special ability called Shadowbind that lets them lock an XCOM into place and create a Shadow Clone with the exact same skills. Another ability that they have is the Horror ability that lets them deal damage and at the same time heal themselves.
The deadliest of the three is the Priest because they are equipped with Psyonic skills as well as magnetic rifles. They also have the ability to lock their enemies in stasis with the use of their Mind Control ability. Whenever they receive great damage, they can shield themselves and actually escape death. Another ability that they possess is a mind merge ability called Holy Warrior where they are able to boost their allies.
Check out the action trailer below for the three XCOM 2 War of the Chosen new enemies.
