Battle EXALT In XCOM: Enemy Within
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
2K and Firaxis recently released a new blog post about XCOM: Enemy Within, an upcoming expansion for XCOM: Enemy Unknown. The article offers some details about EXALT, a rogue organization intent on disrupting XCOM operations by acquiring alien tech for their own use.
EXALT works by placing hidden cells in the Council countries. If left hidden for too long, EXALT cells will carry out a variety of operations against XCOM – Propaganda to increase panic, Sabotage to destroy XCOM’s funds, and Research Hack to cancel research progress.Check out the link below to view the new video.
Who Is EXALT?
But XCOM is not without its own covert arsenal. XCOM can use Intel Scans, which increase in cost the more they are used, but reset to their base cost every month, to reveal EXALT cells around the world. When a cell is revealed, XCOM can select a soldier for covert ops duty, sending that soldier to the cell’s location. After a time, the soldier will need combat support; if this support is provided (in the form of one of our two new covert ops mission types), the cell will be destroyed and XCOM will receive a clue as to the location of EXALT’s headquarters. In this way, the player determines when and where (and whether!) to confront EXALT, but ignoring EXALT can lead to a lot of problems as cells proliferate and EXALT operations take their toll on the strategic situation.
