XCOM: Enemy Unknown Free Second Wave DLC

Steam News announces the release of patch 3 for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, updating the new installment in the turn-based strategy series with some bug fixes as well as new free DLC called Second Wave. Here's word:

The XCOM: Enemy Unknown Second Wave content offers a series of advanced gameplay options that unlock a new level of depth, challenge and replayability. The Second Wave content includes:

  • Damage Roulette: Weapons have a wider range of damage.
  • New Economy: Randomized council member funding.
  • Not Created Equally: Rookies will have random starting stats.
  • Hidden Potential: As a soldier is promoted, stats increase randomly.
  • Red Fog: Combat wounds will degrade the soldier’s mission stats.
  • Absolutely Critical: A flanking shot guarantees a critical hit.
  • The Greater Good: Psionics can only be learned from interrogating a psionic alien.
  • Marathon: The game takes considerably longer to complete.
  • Results Driven: A country offers less funding as its panic level increases.
  • High Stakes: Random rewards for stopping alien abductions.
  • Diminishing Returns: Increased cost of satellite construction.
  • More Than Human: The psionic gift is extremely rare.

I'll sum up random stats on creation and leveling: Shit (reload), shit (reload), shit (reload)...


I'll sum up "diminishing returns", aka Warcraft III-like upkeep, where the more you build of something, the more its cost skyrockets, the opposite of volume production in the real world: Game designers did a (screwed up) job.
