Civilization 5: Upcoming DLC to Include XCOM Soldiers


In the upcoming expansion ‘Brave New World’ for Civilization 5, players will be able to recruit XCOM soldiers to bring pain to the enemies, developer Firaxis announced at a PAX East panel today.

The units look to replace the paratrooper division by dropping actual XCOM soldiers from the Skyranger.

With the help of a demo, the capabilities of the new units were shown briefly. Units in the XCOM pack are pretty mobile, moving up to 40 tiles at a time.

The ‘Brave New World’ DLC for Civilization 5 will also include new scenarios, civilizations, leaders and new Diplomatic victory conditions. It is scheduled to launch this summer for the PC and Mac.
