Everyone's favourite turn-based tactics game XCOM gets an expansion in November: XCOM Enemy Within. The Mac version is already announced along with the others. :D

Just abilities, gear, and weapons? Thats it? No new chain of missions or meaningful reason for the 'expansion'? Sounds like a milking project.

They didn't tell yet. What has been announced so far is not everything, as it seems. The official site says "more to be announced". I would be surprised if there weren't any new story missions to integrate the new game mechanisms and enemies in the game. The announcement trailer at least hints at some new story line.

It has new missions and "40 new maps," whatever that means.

Rock Paper Shotgun posted an interview about Enemy Within. There seems to be quite a lot new stuff in it, and Firaxis still won't talk about everything.

This Expansion must be the mother of expansion!

Mechtoids and a hinted leaning  towards a Lovecraftian take on 'Aliens' and their tech.

What more can you want?

this, Minerva's Den coming to Steam and the two story DLC for Bioshock Infinite, Dishonored  (all PC only for now), I have rarely seen so much great and worthwhile DLC in a long time.

Mmm, yeah, what it means? The repetition of places made me stop the game sooner than I would like, but during a replay trying play no reload. That said no way I won't get the expansion.

Simply loved XCOM: Enemy Unknown... but now I seem to be getting punished for having brought it from the Mac App Store since it seems impossible to get the Enemy Within expansion. I've purchased it though the game's launcher Saturday and still haven't had any luck. Every time I try to download it, the launcher crashes and I have to try again... and again... No Idea how much bandwidth I've wasted with failed attempts so far. Anyone else actually able to get the expansion to work?

Yeah it worked fine for me also with the Mac App Store version, it's been loaded through the pre launch panel and it finished load fine.

And just launched it to check and it's fine. (was keeping it for later, EU was great but I'd like a bit more time be replay it through EW).

I'm using 10.7.5

Enemy Within was exactly what I needed to enjoy XCOM all over again. Thankfully Feral support was able to help me since the launcher wasn't going to let me download it no matter how many times I tried. Favourite game I've played of the year by far.

Hi Legendary,

I think that I may have the same problem downloading the DLC.

Could you share Feral's advice?

Thanks

Yep, just like tBC said. :)

Anywho, if you contact Feral using the support tab of the luncher and send them the generated report you can create there they'll give you a few different troubleshooting steps. When they all fail, they'll kindly give you a scrip file with instructions and a manual download location that'll do the trick perfectly.

Hope that helps you out bobbyz123, as it sucks not being able to dive right back in with all of the extra goodies Enemy Within provides.

I've noticed people do that on the MGS forum as well when responding to me. They use the title, and not the name. Must be how IPB formats the names and titles and avatars or something. Kinda odd.

Thanks!

Maybe I will cover my bases and start using the "Cobra A.K.A 'Legendary" format.
