New mission requires more soldiers.
In addition to a kickass new trailer, Firaxis has revealed that XCOM 2 will be getting a season pass called the Reinforcement Pack. For $20, players will get three expansions sometime after the game’s release.
Anarchy’s Children, the first pack, will hit in spring of next year and offer rebellion-themed content and more “dramatic” soldier customizations. The Alien Hunters pack will have a new mission to hunt down “Ruler” aliens, more soldier customization options, and more weapons and armor. Shen’s Last Gift, the final expansion, will again offer a brand new soldier pack that has unique upgradeable weapons, armor, and customization features, along with a narrative-driven mission and map. Hunters and Shen will both arrive sometime in the summer.
Firaxis has also revealed that XCOM 2 will be getting a Digital Deluxe Edition, which offers the base game, the Reinforcement Pack, and the game’s soundtrack. It’s available to pre-order now and will run you $75. It hasn’t been said yet if the soundtrack will be released separately at a later date.
XCOM 2 hits the PC on February 5th. Are you planning on grabbing the Deluxe Edition or Reinforcement Pack? Let us know in the comments below.
