XCOM: Ultimate Collection Announced; Launch Deal Reduces Price from Over $200 to Less Than $40

XCOM Ultimate Collection

2K Games have announced the XCOM: Ultimate Collection bundle, with a introductory deal of 83% off the over $200 USD collection.

The tactical strategy RPG series XCOM was rebooted in 2012 by 2K Games and developer Firaxis Games with XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Players take command of Earth’s last line of defense against the alien invaders by building their base, gathering intel, and capturing aliens and their weapons for study.

XCOM 2 is an alternate future 20 years after the player fails their mission; joked by the developers it is the result of playing on the hardest difficulty modes. As Earth’s leaders surrender nigh-instantly, the player builds a resistance movement to push back the oppressors, and the humans who have sided with them.

Finally, XCOM: Chimera Squad takes place after that; where the aliens and humans have found a tenuous peace. Work with both humans and aliens as a special unit; tasked with keeping the peace in an experimental city where the two live alongside one another.

The Ultimate Collection features all the games’ DLC and expansions, and would typically sell for $229.88 USD. However, as a “special introductory pricing,” the collection is 83% off- taking the collection down to $39.14 USD. 2K Games did not specify when this deal would end.

You can find the rundown on XCOM: Ultimate Collection (via Steam) below.

Winner of dozens of Game of the Year awards, XCOM: Enemy Unknown is the modern remake of the classic and beloved original XCOM.
XCOM: Enemy Unknown will place you in control of a secret paramilitary organization called XCOM. As the XCOM commander, you will defend against a terrifying global alien invasion by managing resources, advancing technologies, and overseeing combat strategies and individual unit tactics.

XCOM 2 is the sequel to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, the 2012 award-winning strategy game of the year.
Aliens now rule Earth, promising a brilliant future for mankind while secretly hiding a sinister agenda. As the leader of a guerrilla force facing impossible odds, you must ignite a global resistance to eliminate the alien threat and save the human race from extinction.
