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.
