Firaxis Announces XCOM 2: War Of The Chosen Tactical Legacy Pack

Firaxis isn't done giving XCOM fans more ways to fight off their alien oppressors. Today the company announced the Tactical Legacy Pack, a sizeable content drop free to all PC users. 

Releasing October 9 and available for free on Steam until 12:59 PM ET on December 3, the expansion delivers a host of new ways to play. The legacy mode includes a new skirmish mode, offline challenges, and legacy operations that feature four brand new stories that take place between the events of Enemy Unknown and War of the Chosen. These new missions – which don't require any base management – feature many remasters of fan-favorite locations from the series' past.

Creative director Jake Solomon goes into more detail in the video below.

CD Projekt Rejects Witcher Writer's Request For More Compensation

CD Projekt Rejects Witcher Writer's Request For More Compensation

Last year, Witcher creator Andrzej Sapkowski admitted he didn't make the best deal when licensing his property to CD Projekt Red. "I was stupid enough to sell them rights to the whole bunch," he told Eurogamer at the time. "They offered me a percentage of their profits. I said, 'No, there will be no profit at all – give me all my money right now! The whole amount.' It was stupid. I was stupid enough to leave everything in their hands because I didn't believe in their success. But who could foresee their success? I couldn't."

That regret led Sapkowski to demand additional compensation. Today, CD Projekt revealed Sapkowski requested an additional $16.1 million in royalties from the studio, which it soundly rejected. "In [CD Projekt's] opinion, the demands expressed in the notice are groundless with regard to their merit as well as the stipulated amount," the statement reads. "[CD Projekt] had legitimately and legally acquired copyright to Mr. Andrzej Sapkowski’s work, i.a. insofar as is required for its use in games developed by the Company. All liabilities payable by the Company in association therewith have been properly discharged."

Sony Pictures has released a new trailer for the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (The Lego Movie) which is out on December 14.

It's a big universe, and anything is possible, including a multitude of Spider-People – which is what Brooklyn's Miles Morales finds out. That's a good thing, because New York is going to need all of them to save the city.
