XCOM 2 to possibly get another expansion with 'TLE'

Posted by , | Views: 8,252

There's rumours circling around about XCOM 2 getting a new expansion and it seems whatever it turns out to be that Linux support should be there.

Many months ago, some keen-eyed XCOM fans on Reddit noticed that XCOM 2 had a new "Depot" show up on SteamDB named "XCom2 - TLE". Obviously this caused rumours to start flying around about what it could be and six months later we still don't know a thing.

I've held off on writing about this until we saw anything Linux related and yesterday this popped up on SteamDB:

 424941/name: Mac - XCom2 - TLE (424938)
 424942/name: Linux - XCom2 - TLE (424938)
 424943/name: Mac - XCom2 - TLE Content (424938)
 424944/name: Linux - XCom2 - TLE Content (424938)

This at least shows that Feral Interactive are involved and getting it setup ready for releasing for us too. This could even be what Feral Interactive's recent teaser was about. Giving the timing of their teaser and this now showing up, that would align quite well.

The last expansion, XCOM 2: War of the Chosen, was released over a year ago on August 29th and then only two days later it gained Linux support. Seems like it would be pretty good timing for another expansion, so everyone who has since moved on can blow the dust off again for one more turn.

Considering the ending of War of the Chosen, a remake of Terror from the Deep would certainly make a lot of sense.

Is it going to be a big expansion? What are your thoughts? Also, if you don't own it yet the XCOM 2 Collection is 50% off on the Humble Store.

Feral has a habit for teasing expansions?

I hope they don't and that new teaser is about a brand new game.

I love XCOM2 but I'm still waiting for a good deal to get War of the Chosen... So I guess that whatever this new expansion is, I'll wait a while before buying it too. :-/

33% off on Humble Store, don't know if that's enough for you though. Extra 10% off if you're subbed to the monthly too.

Thanks but due to regional prices it will not help. The regular price for me in steam is R$ 79.90 (US$ 19.70), the humble discounted price is US$ 26.79.

Still waiting to pick up XCOM2. Think I'll just get vanilla to start with and pick up the DLC later on as it seems a bit too expensive for me all in one go otherwise. 50% off you say? Ooooh what a dilemma

Indeed, I'd highly recommend buying XCOM2 right away. It's an amazing game, no doubt about it. And it's difficult, so you'll likely spend lots of time gitting gud on it. From what I've read and watched, War of the Chosen makes it a completely new game with very different rules, so it is worth a campaign restart to enjoy all content.
