With the recently announced Enemy Within expansion pack for the highly successful XCOM Enemy Unknown on the brink, players will see an Expansion which introduces not only a whole new story-line but 2 including the Alien story-line and a whole new Human enemy faction, the EXALT, which are a new rebel-like Human force opposing XCOM. The Exalt wish to use a new resource in the expansion known as MELD to advance Human interests. Their design looks and has been described as ‘normal people’ who are able to blend in until the need arises to attack XCOM.
Anyway, with the expansion being reportedly much too big for download on consoles, whereas PC and MAC users will still be able to download the expansion for £19.99/$29.99, Firaxis Games has said that the Expansion will release with an all new edition of the game called XCOM: Commander Edition also including all other DLC’s like the Slingshot Pack and Elite Soldier pack etc, and the game is expected to cost $39.99/£TBA. I Think it will be about £25.99 but we will have to wait and see. It also includes the original game and XCOM: Enemy Within which is quite the bargain for the money.
XCOM: Enemy Within is expected to release on November 12th in North America and November 15th Internationally.
