XCOM: Chimera Squad Announced, Out Later This Month

Recommended Posts



2K has announced a brand new XCOM game. Titled XCOM: Chimera Squad, this brand-new standalone title is set five years after the events of XCOM 2

XCOM: Chimera Squad features an all-new story set in the XCOM universe. Although it is set five years after the events of XCOM 2, Firaxis says Chimera Squad is “neither a sequel nor expansion.”

Here’s a synopsis of the plot according to a press release sent by 2K.

“Set five years after the events of XCOM 2, humans, hybrids and aliens are now working together to forge a civilization of cooperation and co-existence. However, not all of Earth’s inhabitants support the interspecies alliance. City 31, a model of peace in a post-invasion world, is opposed by mysterious groups whose agendas threaten to shatter this delicate interspecies alliance. Chimera Squad, an elite force of human, hybrid, and alien agents, must work together to destroy the underground threats driving the city towards chaos.”

Some of the new features in Chimera Squad include unique Alien and Human agents with distinct personalities and abilities, including species-specific attacks. There’s also a new Breach Mode that adds a new combat phase focused on coordinating assaults across different entry points.

XCOM: Chimera Squad will be released digitally on PC via Steam on April 24. For a limited time, the introductory price for Chimera Squad will be set at $9.99 before it increases to $19.99 on May 1.
