Soldier Nationality.

Gentlemen.

I was merely curious as to whether anyone has created a complete list of the "40 nations" (if I remember the amount correctly from a pre-release interview) that your soldiers can originate from in XCOM? I've been looking around the net like a maniac and appear unable to actually find any information on it at all.

Also, has there been any word on utilizing the localized languages for soldiers depending on their origin? While I personally have no gripe with the american accent, and while I don't even have the bloody game yet because I am european, I can't help but feel it to be terribly distracting to have every nationality speak with american accents in the game. Will modders be our salvation? Is Kristen Stewart ever going to show any emotion bar apathy (which technically isn't an emotion)? Where is my wig?

So many questions.

That's not actually apathy. She's just incredibly boring.

I'll add another question to your list. Can soldiers be from Iran?

Indeed! To my knowledge, there have been no official statement with the soldier backgrounds, so chop, chop Americans! Seeing as you had the privilege to get the game before us, why not get to work? :>

I love seeing soldiers from more obscure nations. I have millions of dudes from America. I want something interesting! I'm proud that my two best soldiers happen to wear flags that I've only ever seen on them in this game, Iceland and Greece. I'm still waiting for a Spaniard to show up. I really want a Spaniard.

As far as I know, however, no one has compiled a complete list.

I think I saw the Iran Flag on one of my characters at one point. Not 100% sure, but I think it's in there.

@NotSoSneakyGuy:

Cheers mate! Don't know if it's lacking a bit due to the "40 nations" comment that stuck to my brain, but it's a good start for a list!

@BoG:

One can only hope that they add more nations with patches! Makes for some rather intuitive play :>
