Advent Faces a New Foe: The Dusk Guard and the Dusk Rogues Join X-Com!

Aliens of all kinds? Well, it could be worse.

 

Yes! At long last they’re here! And totally not this late because I totally spaced it while working on Jungle until a fan reminded me. Nope, not that at all.

But at last they’re here. Fresh from the pages of The Dusk Guard (one of the fanfics that got me my start on the writing scene—it’s a long story) come … Well, the Dusk Guard. That’s pretty self explanatory. But they’re here! Steel, Hunter, Sky (everyone’s favorite waifu), Dawn, Sabra, Nova … and even a little bonus I’ll leave to those who grab to pack to discover.

 

If you own X-Com 2, the entire team can be downloaded and added to your character pack by downloading and importing the character pool found here. And you know you want them. Just look at those faces!

Instructions for how to import said character file can be found here.

Note that both packs may use armor skins or elements found in the following Mod packs, which are recommended for maximum enjoyment: Military Camoflague PatternsInk and PaintCustom Face PaintsDestroyer’s Female Hair PackMore Hair ColorsCapnBubs Accessories Pack, and the X-Com International Voices PackThese packs are recommended.

As far as sending them out to battle goes, I personally recommend making them the classes you see above for maximum parity with the source material: Steel is a Gunner. Hunter and Sabra are both Rangers. Dawn and Sky are Specialists (one a healer, the other a hacker), and Nova is a Psi Operative


Of course, that’s only half the fun. The Dusk Guard are one thing … but what about the Dusk Rogues? Well, you’re in luck, because the anti-hero counterparts to the Dusk Guard are up for download as well!

 

Right from the pages of Beyond the Borderlands (again, fanfic, long story), the Dusk Rogues are ready to bring their own brand of particular combat to the world of X-Com 2 … which probably means that there’s going to be a lot of collateral damage. These guys aren’t subtle.

 

But who cares! They’re good at what they do, and if that happens to mean you level a few buildings in the meantime, well … it couldn’t be helped. They were in the way.

In any case, Blade, Hain, Barnabas, Frost, and Alchemy are all ready at last to lend their skills to X-Com and fight for Earth. Just, you know, try to keep Barnabas alive and kicking.
