Dragging in some savings
XCOM 2‘s expansion War of the Chosen is now released. If all the reviews thus far have you nodding your head in approval, we’ve rounded up the various deals available online for the Steam copy of the game. If you were hoping for deep eye-popping discounts, you may be a bit disappointed as release-week deals on XCOM 2: War of the Chosen have been rather timid. Having said that, at the very least you will have your pick of retailer.
As of writing, five digital retailers are offering discounts from 12% to 16%. If you were hoping for 20% or more, those discounts have disappeared into the void along with the expansion’s pre-order status.
Note: For the discount at GMG you’ll have to sign-in or create an account, otherwise you’ll only see 5% off instead of the 15% off.

User reviews are very positive on Steam, with 78% in the thumbs up camp.
Big fat warning note: many of the incoming negative reviews are from Mac/Linux gamers who have a different release date later this September (similar to console gamers who aren’t getting the game until September 12). These are of course reasonable negative reviews in our opinion, given Firaxis and Feral Interactive haven’t exactly done a good job communicating this on the Steam page.
