would have really sucked if they made you pay for those basic feature besides if anything this is a patch not a DLC. talking about patching they have alot of it to, xcom is the buggiest game i have played since..well..all of the Bethesda games.

You mean like they made people pay for the visual customization

One of the most obvious missing features though, is the animation for a close range kill shot. There should be an execution style premade animation but instead you shoot in the opposite direction...

"This new batch of DLC is free for all versions of the console due to a specific decision of the team: these options were supposed to be in the main game but there wasn’t enough time for testing."

So they're basically admitting they rushed it out the door? No wonder the game has some annoying glitches

Haha c'mon guys, give them a break. At least they aren't charging 800ms points like the 2mb patch in Halo Wars.

Great tip for developers; cut some content from a game, and later give it to people for 'free'. It puts you in the good books with the naive and stupid. EA pulled it off with ME3 just fine.

Xcom is a good game though, glad to see good new IP's last year (Sleeping Dogs, Dishonored). Although Xcom isn't exactly new, it was great for console gamers at least.

I agree.

Xcom was very fun. I am trying to talk my brother in getting it.

Yes there are some bugs but the biggest are on PC. I haven't noticed too many on the console version.

Love the game. A refreshing difference from the constant FPS.

When patches go under the guise of dlc, the gaming world will shake.
