XCom 2 Digital Deluxe details and recommended PC specs

If you have a penchant for putting down aggressive extraterrestrial forces, tactical base building and the constant frustration of losing troops you put damn good money and time into- what can I say, emotion has no place on the battlefield or in my balance book-, then you’ve probably been hanging out for XCOM 2. Well, have I got some dets for you, my friends.

As of today you can pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition of XCOM 2, which comes with the Reinforcement Pack which contains three DLC add-ons.

The Digital Deluxe Edition will set you back 74.99 (USD) and comes with all the usual fanfare, including the game, digital soundtrack and the aforementioned Reinforcement Pack; which basically adds addition content including new missions, aliens, weapons, and more “extreme” solider customization.

The 3 DLC included synopsis and release dates are outlined below:

  • Anarchy’s Children: featuring rebellion-themed content with more dramatic soldier customizations (releasing spring 2016)
  • Alien Hunters: introducing new gameplay surrounding XCOM as an elite alien hunting unit tracking down “Ruler” aliens, along with a new mission, soldier customization options and more powerful weapons and armor (releasing summer 2016)
  • Shen’s Last Gift: offering a brand new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, as well as an additional narrative-driven mission and map (releasing summer 2016).

And as with all good pre-order traps, there’s always more to pry that money from your hand early. Those who pre-purchase XCOM 2 or the XCOM 2 Digital Deluxe Edition will also receive the Resistance Warrior Pack, which comes with additional soldier customization options such as bonus outfits, headgear, and custom facial war paint. It also includes a “Survivor of the Old War,” a new XCOM recruit who will appear in the Avenger’s barracks.
