XCOM 2's War of the Chosen expansion aims to greatly improve upon the original, while also adding a bunch of new storylines to explore, factions to befriend, and enemies to miss despite having a 97% hit chance. Out of all these new enemies it is the titular Chosen that are by far the most dangerous as not only are they extremely capable fighters and psionics, but they are also much smarter than the common goon. In other words, expect them to hit you when you are at your weakest, and from angles you might not even consider covering.

And out of all the newly announced Chosen it is The Hunter that is going to prove the most troublesome to unprepared teams as he is a fan of both stealth and sniper warfare. If you're wondering what all of this might look like in gameplay terms, here's the recently posted trailer showcasing just that. Have a look:

If you currently feel the need to punch him square in his smug face, worry not as XCOM 2: War of the Chosen will be coming to PC and consoles this August 29th. If you would like to learn more about the Chosen, or just the expansion itself, I would recommend heading over to Steam.
