New DLC dropped and its basically like a standalone game. Having a lot of fun creating a new army and really enjoying the new classes (especially reaper). Theyve added a chemistry system where your soldiers now form bonds with each other the more they train and fight side by side. As a pair of soldiers bond grows they can even be trained as a team and gain abilities they can only access together.

On top of all this, the general interface has been updated and everything feels a lot smoother. Got to sit down and sink my first couple hours in last night, even early game the changes are prominent. Cant wait to see what else is new as the game progresses.

It's one of those games where it gets easier as you progress.
At the start it's fucking brutal.

Protip-

Name members of your team after your company workers, it helps deal with their inevitable demise.

The chosen dlc is odd.

It's good, could (maybe should) be played without playing xcom 2. The fucking old bugs still hang around though. Had 1 level with an invisible area, couldn't play my team anywhere. Also had 1 mission that would inevitably lock up.
