XCOM 2 introduces us to its new, and familiar, personnel

2K and Firaxis are introducing us to the personnel we'll be working with on the Avenger in XCOM 2.


2K and Firaxis are giving us a closer look at the personnel we’ll become familiar with while on the Avenger in XCOM 2.

XCOM 2 will have players working with Central Officer Bradford yet again, but the rest of the team will be completely new to the game.

Dr. An-Yi “Lily” Shen is described as a result-oriented person who spends nearly every moment working. While she has never met the Commander, she trusts them based on hearing praise from trusted allies. Her father worked for XCOM HQ and didn’t see him until XCOM lost the first war. Both her and her father stayed away from major cities and tried their best to avoid ADVENT as Lily completed her education. Her father wasn’t able to complete his life’s work, which was to defeat the alien invaders, although something tells us she’ll be picking up where he left off.

Dr. Richard Tygan is a self-assured and confident man who trusts his own knowledge and expertise in the field of biochemistry. While he can be patronizing at times to those who aren’t able to keep up, he has the utmost respect for the Commander. Dr. Tygan joined ADVENT shortly after the aliens conquered Earth. As time went on, Tygan was satisfied with his work, although he was troubled by how ADVENT applied his efforts. The organization increased their control over the human populace thanks to his work, but once he heard of a growing resistance movement, Tygan decided to flee and seek out XCOM.

XCOM 2 is now expected to be released on February 5, 2016 on PC.
