Hello XCOM community! I am Jake Solomon, Creative Director of the XCOM series, and I am very excited to talk to you about our newly announced content drop: the Tactical Legacy Pack. We wanted to do something special for all the amazing fans who have supported the XCOM series so faithfully. So, what is the Tactical Legacy Pack? The team and I, we looked back at the entire series. From the original game, XCOM UFO Defense, to XCOM Enemy Within, to find inspiration in creating new game modes, stories, maps, and equipment to remaster for XCOM 2: War of the Chosen. So, this is our thank you to all the fans as well as the creators of UFO Defense for starting something truly amazing. Now here’s what you’re going to be getting when the Tactical Legacy Pack launches on October 9th for PC. For starters, there are 3 new gameplay options you’ll find in the Legacy Hub: There’s a Skirmish mode, an offline challenge mode, and the heart of our new content called the Legacy Ops. As part of the Legacy Ops experience, you’ll join Central Officer Bradford and the leaders of the resistance as they rebuild XCOM in 4 new and original stories taking place between the events of Enemy Unknown and XCOM 2. Take on a series of back to back rapid-fire missions. There is no strategy layer or base management, just tons of tense, tactical combat. For these missions we created a ton of new maps many of which are actually remastered fan favorite locations from Enemy Unknown and Enemy Within. We also thought your soldiers should look the part, so we brought back the weapons and armor from those games as well. And of course, all the new maps, tech and weapons will make their way into the War of the Chosen campaign along with additional soldier and Photobooth customizations. You also have the choice to play XCOM 2 using either the XCOM 2 soundtrack, the Enemy Unknown soundtrack, or an amazing new score inspired by the game that started it all. The music alone gives the game an entirely new feel. So that’s just a high-level preview of what’s included in the Tactical Legacy Pack coming to PC October 9th. And the most exciting thing about all of this content is that owners of XCOM 2: War of the Chosen on PC, will get the Tactical Legacy Pack for free for a limited time. Over the coming days we’ll be going into more detail about Legacy Ops, Skirmish Mode, and a whole lot more so subscribe to the XCOM YouTube channel for upcoming videos, and be sure to follow XCOM on Twitter, and like the XCOM page on Facebook for more information when it drops.
