Dr. Alice Wallace has been successfully extracted from Advent’s territory, but at a heavy cost – J.R. “Copernicus” Thompson has fallen in battle at the hands of a new Advent opponent; a fully automated robotic soldier armed with heavy weaponry and a grenade launcher – which was used to cause a chain-reaction explosion that killed the Grenadier. With several wounded, and time running out, Thompson’s body was not able to be recovered before evac.
Progress is made on both sides of the war – the Aliens continue to move forward on their Avatar project, and XCOM finally makes contact with the New Mexico resistance elements. However, with several wounded and technology somewhat lacking, the decision is made to hold off on attacking the Black Site yet. Instead, leads are confirmed on several Advent and Resistance operations in the area that would allow XCOM to set back Advent’s general operations. One in particular has been uncovered to help set back the Avatar project indirectly, which will buy XCOM time to build up strength for the fight against Advent’s blacksite.
