A new expansion, called War of the Chosen, will come out for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this summer, on Aug. 29.

The War of the Chosen will feature three new enemy commanders that evolve and adapt over the course of your war with them.

In response, you’ll be able to deploy several new classes including the stealth-saboteur Reaper and the Skirmisher, soldiers that deserted the alien forces to join the resistance. To acquire these classes, you have to court the different resistance factions who employ them. Soldiers can also cultivate bonds with others to gain new abilities and perks—even in XCOM, love can bloom on the battlefield.

Added strategy layer features also flesh out the greater layer of the game, as the Chosen can disrupt global XCOM operations.
