War Never Changes. Wait, wrong franchise…
I love me some XCOM. From the early days of UFO: Enemy Unknown to the present Firaxis offerings, I have been cursing random number generators that miss 98% to hit shots 65% of the time. Building bases and protecting the world on shoestring budgets. Flying the spaceships not so much (Sorry Interceptor, I was not your target market!).
Almost two years after the release of XCOM 2, Firaxis have a new offering for fans:
There is a lot of potential here, and it’s free from October 9th (I am guessing the 10th in Australia).
I for one am looking forward to the legacy missions, catching us up on the story between XCOM and XCOM 2, and the skirmish and challenge missions sound like they will be a lot of fun.
And it’s free for a while. I am guessing this is partly a thank you as stated, and partly a way to get people into essentially a two-month trial. War of the Chosen is a great expansion, but I haven’t fired up XCOM for ages, and I doubt I am alone in this.
Come December 4th, the new Tactical Legacy Pack becomes paid content but apparently, it’s priced under AUD$15, so I will probably be coming back more and more for a quick game now and then. I love XCOM and it’s combat, but having to do the base management makes a quick battle difficult to play as a timewaster or semi-mindless fun hard.
This looks like a great way to keep interest in the series going until XCOM 3 😀
Any new content coming out for games you haven’t played in a while? Let me know on the Facebook page!
Until next time,
