I’ll take virtually any excuse to dip back into XCOM 2 for another dozen or four hours. (Let’s be honest: sometimes I don’t need any excuse at all.) This week, Firaxis has provided me with a pretty good one in the XCOM 2: War of the Chosen – Tactical Legacy Pack. It’s temporarily free to owners of War of the Chosen (and at least for now PC-only,) and its combination of tough scenarios and nostalgic locations and music were definitely worth coming back for.
The stories of the four campaigns of seven missions a piece (with no strategy layer at all) are decent enough. They give us a little bit of background as to how the DJ good hooked up with XCOM, how Shen got the Avenger off the ground, and some info on the ill-fated squad members that help rescue the commander in the original tutorial mission. No major revelations are made, though.
