Finished XCOM2: War of the Chosen will probably start a new game later.
The game puts a lot more priority on edge case abilities in the core game. In my vanilla playthrough I was much more dependent on hacking MECs and turrets. Early game, you’re more worried about the Chosen kidnapping your units.
Once the Chosen are out of the game, you can pretty much steamroll it. The last room of the last mission was much easier this time around.
I don’t know if the ending is hinting at possibly more DLC or a XCOM3: Terror from the deep remake.
I’ve been playing Stellaris which got a new update. It’s not 100% perfect, but it’s a long way from where it first started.
