XCOM 2 to receive free War of the Chosen Tactical Legacy Pack on PC


Bonus batch of alien blasting action

A huge update is headed toward the PC version of turn-based strategy title XCOM2 :War of the Chosen that will bring new modes and content to the planet-saving adventure. Better yet, the update will be free from October 9 until December 3.

The Tactical Legacy Pack intends to bridge the gap between XCOM 2 and previous release XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Eschewing the base-management element entirely, the update will allow players to guide Officer Bradford and the resistance through a series of intense firefights, set during the early days on Earth's takeover by a daunting extra-terrestrial force.

The update will include 28 maps, some new and some remastered from Enemy Unknown. New armour and weaponry will be added to your arsenal. Over 100 new challenges will be added to War of the Chosen and a new Skirmish mode will allow for the custom building of your own intergalactic firefights. In all, the Tactical Legacy pack is a really meaty upgrade for a game running a couple of years old, and should provide fans with hours more entertainment, gratis. To play the new content, players must own both XCOM 2 and the War of the Chosen expansion.

XCOM 2: War of the Chosen is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
