In this video from the folks working on XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, comes yet ANOTHER look inside video, this time highlighting some of the new enemy types that you can expect to encounter. They cover 3 specific enemies and they are as follows:

The Purifier – This class has attacks that cover a large area of effect, and may explode upon death due to volatile equipment. The Advent deploys them in areas heavily saturated with the Lost, and they act as a cleanup crew.

The Priest – These are Advent soldier who are gifted in psionics, and can mind merge with a nearby unit, dramatically increasing their combat effectiveness. This attack also leaves the priest vulnerable and if you can succeed in eliminating him, you’ll also take out the unit he is controlling. (You could call this a Wambo Combo, but I’ll leave that to your discretion.)

The Spectre – This one has the research labs baffled as to whether it is organic or robotic. It can change from a humanoid form into a black cloud in an instant, which is impossible to hit. Then if it gets the drop on a soldier, it knocks him out and creates and exact copy with the same weapons and abilities which can turn the tides against you.

Check out the video to see these enemies in action and collect the intel you’ll need to take them head on, in the heat of battle. XCOM 2: War of the Chosen releases on August 29th, for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
