XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Edition coming to PC [UPDATE]

Bundle to include main game, XCOM: Enemy Within, Elite Soldier Pack, Slingshot DLC, and all Second Wave options.

by

[UPDATE] A 2K Games representative told GameSpot today that the XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Edition will include the following:

  • The main game
  • XCOM: Enemy Within
  • Elite Soldier Pack
  • Slingshot DLC
  • All Second Wave options

The Complete Edition will only be offered on PC because everything featured in the bundle is already included with the XCOM: Enemy Unknown Commander Edition for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

The original story is below.

2K Games has announced a new version of XCOM: Enemy Unknown called The Complete Edition. The bundle launches on March 4 for PC, but no mention was made of what content the game will include or if it will come to consoles like the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

We've reached out to 2K Games for comment.

The XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Edition will presumably feature previously released downloadable content like the Enemy Within expansion and the Slingshot and Elite Soldier packs, though this is not confirmed.

2K Games has also announced another new bundle: the Civilization V Complete Edition. Available today for PC, the bundle packs in the main game, expansion packs Gods & Kings and Brave New World, and all add-on content release for the strategy game to date.

For more on the two games in question, check out GameSpot's reviews of XCOM: Enemy Unknown and Civilization V.

This would be great if XCOM: EW wasn't a buggy pile of unplayable shit.  XCOM: EU was fine, but they released XCOM: EW in an unbelievably bad state. 


Even if it was patched Firaxis has lost quite a bit of my trust.  Somehow I doubt it's patched given the way they were dragging their feet.

Perfect way to make the jump into the game if you have not yet. You won't regret it.

Well, I feel this is a good option for people who are yet to buy the game.

Good job, 2K, you keep sucking the money from the suckers.


Next expansion: Your soldier can be like a Transformer!, only for $29, and as a bonus it has a roundhouse kick.

Also included: The Patriot Mode, a version of the game that changes Xcom into a all USA operation only(all they had to do is hang some flags)

Missions: The evil Russians, Germans and Chinese are after Liberty and Justice, and only Emerica can stop them. 


The content will be 1/20th of the game, but cost 1/2 the price. You WILL buy it, because your a tool.

..And what's the point of this?

Oh right, it's how the game should've been when it was released.


Honestly, even after playing through the complete game (ie; with EW), I still hail the original XCOM (UFO Defense) as a better game.. which I ended up playing AFTER the new XCOM.

I really wish someone else was allowed this IP. To me, Firaxis does not understand what an XCOM game is, especially evident by treating it as a Civilization game with a damn content expansion pack.


Oh well, suppose Xenonauts is something to look forward to as an XCOM replacement.

I don't advise buying it... it just feels like one more expansion is on the way that is going to flesh out the 'meh' end game of the Xcom campaign

Enemy Within added some nice mechanics to the early-mid game play to keep it from stagnating and improving the tension of missions instead of simply moving a hunk of over watched members about taking as many turns as it took to safely clear the mission. Now you only had so many turns to get to the canister of magic goo, but it still has the problem of ending up very blegh by the end where your simply running missions and testing your squad members to find the physic ones, build the artifact room, then assault on the Mothership and bam game over with very little changing throughout that time...

Iunno feels like theres more they could flesh it out with like how the inclusion of the human enemies and finding their base by sending opertaives on missions spiced up the start to mid campaign. + I liked the new enemies (specally the choke your lone agents to death invisosquids)

By complete they mean without main game features ripped out to sell as DLC.

There's a Sid Meier humble bundle going on right now, that I would recommend being a part of if you want the Civ 5 stuff.

Sounds good, I've not bought either of these games yet... though I enjoy CivIV a lot, and I like the concept for XCOM so I'd probably like the game as well. Depending on how they price these I may be one of the buyers this time... IMO *all* games that recieve DLC's and xpacs should (at the end of their shelf life) be released as some sort of a "complete" edition.

They should just focus on a sequel,  I want a sequel damn it, not a package deal!

It's hilarious that the $60 day one buyers didn't get the whole game. Even more hilarious that this is expected and people allow it.

I would rather have them fix the progress breaking bug everyone is experiencing on the consoles.  I haven't played enemy within for weeks because I'm still waiting on a patch.

PS3 has valkyria chronicle, no need for this garbage.

Give something exclusive to PC gamers and console users loses their minds

Sales on consoles were poor, so there's no bundle for consoles.

@DAOWAce Agreed. It's just a shame to see the development of Xenonauts to crawl along so slowly and still having so many annoying bugs.

It needs at least another 1, if not 2 years of development to be actually interesting and a worthy "competitor".

Until then I'd rather continue to play the good old XCom games (the pausable realtime mode of XCom Apocalypse is still my personal favorite I have to admit because turnbased doesn't make much logical sense to me) and it runs absolutely fine using DosBox.

The new XCom (Enemy Unknown and Enemy Within) feel too limited and "casualized" and the AI is constantly cheating and they don't seem to have any intention to ever fix that. (probably due to their "consoles first" development approach)


If an indie developer creates a good XCom Apocalypse remake, I'd be willing to financially support them.

@Unholy123 Have you looked up the Long War mod for XCom on Nexus?  You would have to revert to an old version of the game but it sure does make things more challenging.

@JSusie  I was about to post about that bundle as well... now I'm debating whether I should get that or not :/  $15 for what is essentially CivV Complete (along with Civ3+CivIV and a couple other Sid Meyer games)... TBH though I wasn't too thrilled with CivV, I think either 3 or 4 was the best one, can't decide which one... but it's not 5.

@jessie82 Which one?  Civ 5 complete is $50 on Steam - and very easily worth it.

@1wikkid1 Most are - though often times I would like a "Complete DLC" choice so I could buy all the DLC at once without having to re-buy the main game.

@Bhemont  Luckily i don't see how this would be any work for the people who actually made the game, and the more money they manage to squeeze out of the game the more likely a sequel is

@playstationzone read the news. next-gen port would be useless.

@kitmeep  its was never $60 and i more got my moneys worth out of it so who gives a crap?

@kitmeep I don't think this game was ever $60, it was much cheaper than that if I remember correctly, maybe on consoles I had the PC version but I think it was an arcade title on 360 and PS Store.

@leakingdogmilk  I loved Valkyria Chronicles. But this game is better though valkyria has much better art style and more charming story this one takes the cake on the gameplay.

@Gamer3344 It isn't, console users got it first. It was called Commander Edition, I picked it up on black friday for $20.

@Vojtass How much was it sold for consoles?
I heard of about 200,000 copies sold.

@1wikkid1 My vote is for 3.  I played 4 first, then 5, then 3, then 5 again with expansions, and for some reason really enjoyed 3 the most.

As a replacement for Civ 5, I prefer playing Warlock - Master of the Arcane, which is basically a fantasy version of vanilla Civ 5 (which was poor to begin with; expansions really brought the game up to standard).

@normanislost This is exactly the pathetic state of gaming consumers that I'm talking about. You paid full price for a partial experience and you are happy about it.

@Joedgabe @leakingdogmilk  


Are you insane? How exactly is this piece of turd better than VC in anyway? The random number generator is complete screwed up, covers are just a multiplier. A game where bullets can go through walls to hit its target IS NOT OKAY. The game is completely broken and people are just playing round a broken game and think they accomplished something, if the covers aren't just a multiplier and 90%+ accuracy actually means something you will be laughing at how easy the game is.


VC has its own faults but it is no where as bad as this piece of turd.

@sladakrobot @Vojtass  112k in the first month. 1M. for both consoles to date. PC made 600k in retail only. Steam and other digital stores made another 500k at least.

@DAOWAce @1wikkid1  For an interesting fanstasy twist on 4x I recommend Fallen Enchantress, it also borrows from M&M for it's combat system... just make sure to patch it up if you do get it, from what I understand it was a sorry mess at release.

@leakingdogmilk @Joedgabe  

So basically you saw an Xcom headline and went to it only to bash the game and talk about how much better VC is? Or need more time on your hands my friend..
