XCOM 2's Alien Hunter DLC out today

Another day, another XCOM 2 DLC pack. Not quite, but Alien Hunters is out today for XCOM 2. Available on its own for $10 or part of the Reinforcement Pack, this DLC adds in terrifying new Ruler aliens who will randomly show up in your story missions. Three different bosses are available, and all of them require a completely different set of tactics to defeat. But beating them gets you cool new weapons and armor to use on your soldiers. Other items and gear also become available as part of a prelude mission. While not as extensive as something like Enemy Within from XCOM 1, it is a cool way to insert extra content into the story. 

From the description:

"Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign. Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend."

Eat your heart out XCOM fans. Or maybe your soldiers hearts will get eaten by the new Berserker Queen. I'm not sure.

Alien Hunters is available now on Steam for $9.99.
