New XCOM 2 DLC Answers What Happened Between XCOM & XCOM 2. Free-for-a-Limited Time!

Firaxis announced today in celebration of the 6th anniversary of the XCOM reboot, they will be releasing a brand new DLC for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen (you’ll need the expansion). The neat thing is that it’s going to be free for owners of the game for the first 8 weeks after its launch on October 9th.

Ever wondered how did the commander get captured? How did we even lose the fight against the aliens? Well with the upcoming DLC, we’re getting a 4-mission legacy ops mini campaign with its own story arc that seeks to give us answers.

The legacy ops is merely a part of the Tactical Legacy Pack which after the 8-week grace period for owners to grab it for free, will go on sale for USD$7.99. The free to own period ends on December 3rd.

The XCOM 2: War of the Chosen – Tactical Legacy Pack DLC includes a collection of new game modes, maps, weapons, armors, Photobooth options, and more that honors the legacy of the XCOM series.

The DLC wil also include re-imagined maps from XCOM: Enemy Unknown such as the gas station plus weapons and armour from XCOM such as plasma weapons and the Titan armour.

The maps and content from XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be made available in the main XCOM 2: War of the Chosen campaign after you’ve unlocked them in the Legacy Ops campaign.

Check out the full list of new content below:
