XCOM 2: I Need Soldiers To Help Me Free The World (The World Was Saved)

98 posts in this topic

XCOM 2 will be available to play in about 13 hours, and once again I am going to be needing soldiers to help me save the world from aliens. Let me know what class you want to play as, if you have a preference for which skills you want to learn in that class, your nickname, how you want to look, if you want a bio, your attitude, your weapon's look, and what voice you want to have. You can also ask to be created as a Scientist or Engineer. I'll be uploading screenshots and videos of my playthrough and we will see how many of us can make it out alive.

 

Like last time, I will not be playing with Iron Man on but will be playing like it is, possibly reloading if there is a glitch, I miss click, or there is some problem with the game. This will be my first time playing XCOM 2 so I might also check to see how things work. If the difficulties are the same I should be playing on Classic (or whatever the one under the hardest setting is).

 

If you want to see some of the options you have to choose from you can watch this video

 

For voice and language options there are 10 US English, 4 UK English, 2 Australian English, 10 French, 10 Italian, 10 German, and 10 Spanish and they can sound different based on a characters attitude type (so until people add mods or their DLC is released there are no Russian voices and no languages from Asia, Africa, or the Middle East).

 

Classes and their abilities

 

Opening Mission (when the tutorial is off)

articman reporting for duty! I'd prefer to be a sniper (probably survive the longest) just pick what skills you think are best and I would prefer to have some kind of full helmet.

I want to be a Grenadier that's focused on the heavy gunner skill tree or a Psi-operative. 

It terms of customization, I want to be American, Russian or German, gender doesn't matter all that much to me and neither does background but I would like my attitude to be either aggressive or laid back and I also like to have a Black-Red or Red-Yellow color scheme for my armor and weapons.

Sure, I'll join.  I have no idea what skills, voice, etc. to have, so just use your best judgement, but try to go for a particular theme: somewhat mentally unhinged pyromaniac/explosion addict who's motto is "Too much isn't nearly enough!" and would probably be on the wrong side of the law if the aliens hadn't invaded.  Oh, and give him either no facial hair or five-o'clock shadow and explosion burns/scars if there is an option.

 

P.S.  I want to be Russian.  Is that an option?

Please make me a gun-slinging sharpshooter. Attitude: laid back. Nickname: Seahawk. Gender/Nationality: French or Japanese female. If possible I would love a black/white color scheme.

I think I died on your other playthrough, so that means that a new generation has to step up to redeem the Meatshield name. I'll go for a grenadier from Canada, but looks Asian. Now let's go take this planet back.

In the build that reviewers and previews got there does not seem to be any Russian voices (or any specific Asian countries).

Either no one died or an unnamed Squadie/Rookie died in a map I didn't mention.

Can I be a Psi Operative?

make him look like a hobo wizard (what ever that looks like) and give him a thick German voice also lots of scars to show how RAW he is!! and no sleeves (to also show how RAW he is)

Basically make him a buff German hobo wizard

attitude should be intense, colours and patterns should be something like this

interpret that how ever you wish

 

and nickname "Oozlag"

No russian? bah.

Anyway I was thinking about being a scout, but Ghaleon being a sorcerer, perhaps psi ops should be my choice since nobody else picked that that I've noticed.

He'll be a by the books dude, and I guess I'll use a german voice, whichever one seems to sound the most confident to you. I don't really care about how you make em look or whatever (xcom2 should have a free character creator like pso2 had).

As for skills, given you can have any skill at random order for psi ops, it'll be tough to say, but as a general guideline (feel free to break it if it seems reasonable due to the order you get them or if training time is way too high for certain skills at certain points. for example take fortress or whatever before soul fire if you already have all the other damage moves and you really think you need it, but otherwise if there's no must get I have a list of priorities).

 

Void Rift>Solace>Fuse>Stasis>Null lance (though prioritize it before stasis if you didn't 'get' void rift yet)>Insanity (I'm hoping the % of success isn't ass like I expect domination to be)>scism>Soul fire>Fortress>stasis shield>Inspire>soul shield.

 

German voice but Canadian citizen =P

I wonder if scism affects void rift insanity.

OOO OOO OOO! Can I be a Specialist? Full name should be Taylor Cecil, nickname Demonbane. 

Tall and lanky, American, hair as close to full-on metalhead hair you can get, Tony Stark goatee. Full body armor, no helmet. Should be Laid Back.

Mission 2, reloaded while checking to see if choosing to hack something and then cancelling it would cost an action or not (it doesn't). I'll be trying to stick with the same squad at first because in a few days I will have the facility that allows me to train and promote recruits into the class I want. Also the sooner they get promoted the sooner I can unlock five man squads.

Watched the first vid and it looks like you played or watched the first stage in beta already. Otherwise I doubt you would have used a 2nd grenade on that last dude instead of shoot at such a range.

Just curious but are those sonic force pulse gun things the baddies have gonna 1shot yer ass like plasma guns do without critting in EU before you get some armor or hp upgrades?
