Aliens rule Earth, promising a brilliant future for mankind while secretly hiding a sinister agenda. As the leader of a guerrilla force facing impossible odds, you must ignite a global resistance to eliminate the alien threat and save the hum race from extinction.
XCOM 2: War of the Chosen:
The XCOM® 2: War of the Chosen expansion adds extensive new content in the fight against ADVENT when additional resistance factions form in order to eliminate the alien threat on Earth. In response, a new enemy, known as the “Chosen,” emerges with one goal: recapture the Commander. The expansion includes new Hero classes to counter the “Chosen”, new enemies, missions, environments and increased depth in strategic gameplay.
FOUR DLC PACKS:
• Resistance Warrior Pack: Customize your squad of resistance fighters with a set of bonus outfits and head gear, as well as custom armor and face camo. Instantly unlock a survivor of the old war as a new recruit in your barracks.
• Anarchy’s Children: This rebellion-themed content pack introduces more than 100 new exotic customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers. These options are purely cosmetic and do not alter the stats of a soldier.
• Alien Hunters: Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign. Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend.
• Shen’s Last Gift: Investigate ADVENT’s “Lost Towers” facility where Chief Engineer Lily Shen accompanies your squad in search of her late father’s secretive final project. Discover a unique new soldier class complete with powerful new combat abilities, strategy mechanics, and customization options.
XCOM ON THE RUN: Take command of the Avenger, an alien supply craft converted to XCOM’s mobile headquarters. New open-ended gameplay lets you decide where to guide your strike team, how to grow popular support, and when to combat enemy counter-operations.
RECRUIT RESISTANCE FIGHTERS: Five soldier classes, each with its own skill tree, let you create specific soldiers for your tactical plan.
TACTICAL GUERRILLA COMBAT: New gameplay systems offer more tactical flexibility in combat. Use concealment to ambush enemy patrols. Loot enemies for precious gear and artifacts. Rescue VIPs and save fallen comrades by carrying them to the extraction point.
A NEW BREED OF ENEMY: A diverse cast of enemies from powerful new alien species to the ADVENT, enforcers of the alien regime, offer a distinct tactical challenge.
RESEARCH, DEVELOP AND UPGRADE: Configure and build rooms on the Avenger to give XCOM new capabilities on the battlefield. Use your Scientists and Engineers to research, develop and upgrade weapons and armor to fit your preferred tactics.
EACH MISSION IS A UNIQUE CHALLENGE: Go on missions around the world, from wildlands to the heart of the alien-controlled megacities, to the depths of alien installations. There are virtually infinite combinations of maps, missions and goals.
CREATE CUSTOM MODS: Community-focused tools allow you to create your own campaign, tactical gameplay, aliens, classes, strategy game features, and share within the Steam Workshop.
ENGAGE IN HEAD-TO-HEAD MULTIPLAYER: Mix-and-match squads of humans and aliens and battle head-to-head on randomly-generated maps.

Xcom 2 is excellent follow-up to Xcom: Enemy Unkown. When I've though Enemy Unkown with Enemy Within expenasion was perfect and it couldn't get any better, sequel comes in and does nearly everything right and improved on every field over the first game. Graphics got much better, OST is as good as ever, new classes are completely awesome, and gameplay is just as good. It is true definition of sequel done right. It is little harder because of the timer, but that's more of a beginners trap rather than real obstacle. While 2 was a first punch, the second punch game with War of the Chosen. If you've thought it couldn't get any better, we get 3 new classes, 12 new missions and Chosen, 3 bosses that are heavily inspired by Nemesis System from Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor and Shadow of War games. It fixes most of the optimisation problems and extends the game even more, giving excellent endgame. As for the small DLCs, there is not much to talk about. Resistance Warrior Pack and Anarchy's Children are outfits, so if you care about those, you will be in heaven. Alien Hunters introduced 3 new bosses and it was awesome idea in vanilla version of the game, but it changed the rules of the game at the same time and it was little too hard (even designers admited that, that's why it got re-designed in War of the Chosen). It is OK DLC and gives some challange, and new items are cool, but with WotC expansion, you won't see much use. Shen's Last Gift has cool story, but it is only couple of missions and gives you pretty worthless robots. While they got some buff with expansion, they still won't replace your regular soldiers or new heroes. Overall, excellent pack. If you like tactical turn-based strategy game, this one is a must and you can't get more definitive experience than this. Just get it now and enjoy it for hundreds of hours like I do.
