There's some instructions in a different thread, but so far I've been having no luck with it. Its possible I'd need to start a new game to make it happen.

Yes, it's possible. I'm using the Long War 2 mod with the GOG version.

Steps how to install:

1) Create a folder called Mods in the game installation folder. If the mod is for the base game it should be in "XcomGame/Mods" or "XCom2-WarOfTheChosen/XcomGame/Mods" for War of the Chosen mods.
2) Edit the file "DefaultModOptions.ini" which can be found in "XcomGame/Config" or "XCom2-WarOfTheChosen/XcomGame/Config".
3) Add the line: ActiveMods="mod name"
4) Save and launch the game
It's definitely possible - see amund's post.

However, most of the mods compatible with War of the Chosen are only on Steam. The Nexus versions were never updated for most, and are only compatible with the base game. Now that Steam isn't the only option for playing the game, is there any chance of getting some of the higher rated quality of life mods for WoTC ported over to Nexus? One of the big appeals to Xcom 2 over Xcom 1 was mod integration. That's impaired at the moment for anything other than the Steam version.

Just copy/paste the URL of any mod on Steam and you'll be able to download it. Works for pretty much every popular mod on there as far as I can tell.

Maybe add what is the actual name of the mod, noticed that some users add the folder name instead of the file name of the mod.
