Firaxis has announced that XCOM 2 DLC Alien Hunters will release on May. 12, 2016 for $9.99. The DLC will be free for XCOM 2 Season Pass holders.

With XCOM 2 DLC Alien Hunters installed, players will come across beefed-up versions of Viper, Berserker, and Archon appear at random intervals. If not dealt with quickly, the enemies will retreat, only to re-appear during later missions.

XCOM 2 DLC Alien Hunters Release Date and Details

In addition to this, the DLC will include four unique weapons which include:

  • Bolt Caster – a high-damage, single-shot weapon
  • Hunter’s Axe – a powerful melee weapon that can also be thrown
  • ShadowKeeper Pistol – killing an enemy with its guaranteed-hit Shadowfall shot puts the user in concealment
  • Frost Bomb Grenade – temporarily freezes targets

Aside from weapons, Firaxis has also promised new three unique armor types. One of these types is Icarus Suit which allows players to fly, but get permanently lost if the wearer gets killed.

Last but not the least, the developer has announced that prior to the release of XCOM 2 DLC Alien Hunters, the game will receive a new patch which will bring balance tweaks, performance optimizations, multiplayer rebalance, and other unspecified issues.
