XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen’s Photo Mode Is Now A Separate Free Download On PC


The upcoming expansion to the strategy game XCOM 2 will add a lot of new mechanics on top of the original game, but it will also add one more feature that barely has any effect for gameplay: a photo mode.

In response to how players have grown attached to their soldiers despite the chance to lose them thanks to permadeath, Firaxis is adding a feature to pose your soldiers for a propaganda poster. These posters will be seen inside of the Avenger, XCOM’s flying base, as well as on the ground as propaganda for the guerrilla resistance force. There’s tons of options to customise the perfect poster. Whether it’s to honour the recently deceased soldier from a previous mission gone wrong, highlighting your strongest squad lineup, or a buddy-buddy poster of two soldiers who have forged strong bonds in the battlefield– a new feature in War Of The Chosen- you can pose them to your liking and save the pictures either for use in-game or share it on social media.

Good news is that you can try out the photo mode right now for free. Similar to the free character pool editor for XCOM 2, the War Of The Chosen Propaganda Center will let you create new soldiers to import to the expansion. The added bonus here is access to the new photo mode. Even if you don’t plan to pick up the expansion soon, you can use your existing XCOM 2 save or create new soldiers to mess around with it.

XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen Propaganda Center is now available for download on PC here. XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen will be out on PC as well as PS4 and Xbox One on August 29.
