Why is the console version not a downloadable expansion like the PC?
There is just too much content! Offering the title as a standalone product was the only way that we could get it to our console audience. The standalone product, XCOM: Enemy Within Commander Edition
includes everything that the PC expansion includes, but also adds the previously released Elite Soldier Pack
and Slingshot Content Pack
and the Second Wave content from XCOM: Enemy Unknown
all on a single disc.
Can the console version play EU separately without EW?
The base game experience of XCOM: Enemy Unknown
cannot be played using the XCOM: Enemy Within Commander Edition disc. The XCOM: Enemy Within Commander Edition
allows gamers to play the ultimate XCOM experience. It enables gamers to play using all previously released DLC; the Elite Soldier Pack and Slingshot Content Pack, and the Second Wave content from XCOM: Enemy Unknown
, along with the additions that come with XCOM: Enemy Within.
Are there going to be more than two enemies added?
There are two new alien types in XCOM: Enemy Within. There have been statements regarding that more new “enemies” have been added. This is also true.
Are there any new classes other than MECs added?
MECs are the only new troop class. However, soldiers of all other classes (Assault, Heavy, Sniper, Support) can be enhanced with Gene Mods.
PC and Console: Is there a patch that addresses bugs coming for Enemy Unknown?
Yes. We will release patch notes closer to when we are ready to release the patch.
Console: Will players of Enemy Unknown Multiplayer be allowed to play together with players from Enemy Within?
No, they are separate Multiplayer experiences.
PC and Console: Will Slingshot/Progeny be toggleable?
Console: Will the expansion have a new trophy/achievement list?
Console: Will all my trophies, wins, and second wave options carry over to XCOM: EW?
No, they will be treated as separate games.
PC and Console: Will all the new second wave options be available immediately or do you need to beat different difficulties to unlock them?
They will be tied to beating difficulty levels. If you have beat the proper difficulty on the PC version of XEU, they will be available immediately. You will need to beat the proper difficulty on XEW to unlock them on the console since they will be separate games.
PC and Console: Will EW and EU games be counted towards and global achievement/trophy goals? For example, if you are one continent away for “A Continental Flow”, will you be able to finish it with an EW game?
This is true for PC games. However, console versions act as separate games so achievement progress will not be shared or cumulative.
