What Content Do I Get In XCOM 2 For Consoles?

BY 2K Mike



Hello, Commander. 

If you're planning to pick up a copy of XCOM 2 on either Xbox One or PlayStation 4, you may be wondering if there's any content difference between the console and PC versions. 

XCOM 2 features the same content across all versions: The same gameplay, the same story, and the same maps. That said, modding and mods are limited to the PC version of the game.

All the downloadable content from the PC version will be for sale on consoles at the time of launch. There are three packs of DLC available for purchase:

  • ANARCHY’S CHILDREN: This rebellion-themed content pack introduces more than 100 new exotic customizations for the entire arsenal of armors available to your XCOM soldiers. These options are purely cosmetic and do not alter the stats of a soldier. 
  • ALIEN HUNTERS: Transform the soldiers of XCOM into an elite alien hunting squad with impressive new weapons and armor to face off against new alien Rulers that will pursue your squad across an entire campaign.  Additional cosmetic upgrades to soldiers and the Avenger are included, as well as a new epic mission where Central Officer Bradford leads a squad with the guidance of an old friend. 
  • SHEN’S LAST GIFT: Introduces a new soldier class with unique upgradeable weapons, armor and customization features, and a new narrative-driven mission and map.

Pre-ordering XCOM 2 will unlock the Resistance Warrior Pack (additional soldier customization and the "Survivor of the Old War" XCOM recruit). 

If you purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition of XCOM 2, you'll receive the Reinforcement Pack, which contains the three packs listed above (Anarchy's Children, Alien Hunters, and Shen's Last Gift). 

NOTE: XCOM 2's main game is required to play DLC. Individual DLC in the Reinforcement Pack may be sold separately. If you purchase the Reinforcement Pack, please don't also purchase the individual DLC packs.
