Dealspwn meets XCOM: Enemy Within's new human enemy faction in a hands-on preview.
Dealspwn's Jonathan Lester writes: "Exalt troopers fight very differently to the Aliens, in that they'll use squad tactics and human weaponry against you. YOUR squad tactics and weaponry, specifically. They'll advance in fire teams, pushing the advantage with overwatch and sending snipers up to strategic roosts. If they can't get line of sight, their heavies will make some by blowing up walls with rockets and grenades. Medics throw smoke to cover their assault and patch up their fellows when they can. They'll flank, hang back, regroup and tactically probe your defences before rushing exposed positions. If this sounds familiar, that's because they'll use everything you've learned over the last year to punish you as ruthlessly as possible."
