The expansion is adding a number of new features, including the very powerful Chosen, enemy assassins that can kidnap your soldiers, friendly heroes with their own upgrade trees, and much more. The Skirmisher is one of those new factions, and doubles as a new unit class as well. But they also spawn at the sound of explosions. Ahead of its release, developer Firaxis has released a video walkthrough that gives fans a glimpse at one of the missions they'll undertake in the DLC, as well as some of the new factions and enemies they'll encounter.
Along the way, you will be facing off against the hordes of zombie-like creatures called The Lost. Later abilities for the class include the ability to gain a move every time they see an enemy take a move (so - they are ideal at protecting from large flanking groups), while another allows them to return fire anytime they are shot at.
