The XCOM 2 add-on could have been a standalone game

Firaxis is apparently not pulling any punches as War of the Chosen, the add-on announced during the E3 conference, is simply massive.

In an interview with Polygon the XCOM 2 designer Jake Solomon said that the expansion is going to be so massive that the team wondered whether not to launch it as a separate game, XCOM 3.

The add-on will include three new resistance factions, new Hero classes, new enemies that level up as the story progresses, missions, environments and missions. Nice.

War of the Chosen will launch on August 29 on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Mac version is also incoming at a later date.
