The DLC will be free until December 3rd, and offers new Legacy Ops, maps, and much more.
It’s been almost six years since Firaxis and 2K Games revived the X-COM franchise with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. With the series having received a sequel with XCOM 2 and its expansion War of the Chosen, Firaxis has announced even more content for PC owners of both. It’s called the Tactical Legacy Pack, and it will release on October 9th.
If you own War of the Chosen (or the XCOM 2 Collection), then the Tactical Legacy Pack is completely free. This is only for a limited time however – after December 3rd, you’ll need to pony up $7.99 to own it. It’s an interesting tactic, not unlike that seen with A Hat in Time’s recent Seal the Deal DLC. Even if this offer is meant to accelerate sales for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, there’s lots of content to experience in the Tactical Legacy Pack.
Six new Legacy Ops, Skirmish Mode for creating and playing your own missions, over 100 War of the Chosen Challenges that can be played offline, and 28 new maps are available. Some of those maps are remastered from XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Enemy Within as well, providing a nice bit of nostalgia. Head here for more information on the expansion.
