Nice deal. I can get War of the Chosen DLC and Tactical Legacy Pack DLC for cheap. It would be cheaper if I have Chimera Squad in my library too.


ID: gpxuz3l

Chimera Squad in the current humble bundle

ID: gpy6c5l

It can be even cheaper in the XCOM 2 Ultimate bundle 🙂

The XCOM2 DLC are about $0.20 cheaper for me with it.

ID: gpy21x6

I have Chimera and it was still cheaper to just buy the Chosen + Tactical Legacy pack from the XCom 2 page itself.

ID: gpzklbf

Played part of Chimera Squad when it came out, and then a bug started messing up my save and eating my weapons. Not sure if it's still a thing that can happen, but if so make backups

ID: gq1z7ew

The bundle discount is 73%. So anything you can get with a cheaper discount than that is better to buy before the bundle.

ID: gq4zhru

Tactical Legacy Pack is an underrated because it has the best soundtrack in my opinion

ID: gq0920c

It's not a great deal though.

4 : Anonymous2021/03/06 12:27 ID: gpxqwqj

I got chimera squad fof 87% off with this deal

ID: gpy11h6

3,91€ for Chimera Squad + one Xcom1 dlc I apparently didn't have (or want at this point but w/e).

The historical low was 8,07€ so It's a great deal.

ID: gq0gdrk

Yeah I own everything except that and it's only $2.70, makes me wonder If I should skip this month of humble choice.

5 : Anonymous2021/03/06 17:46 ID: gpzmbdi

Warning: buy the xcom 2 collection before you buy the xcom ultimate collection.

The xcom 2 collection contains a 10€ reinforcement pack which includes 3 dlcs which individually costs 25€ in the ultimate edition. This way you save about 5€

ID: gq07nsy

Thanks! Great tip. Saved some bucks.

ID: gq41941

Should i wait for a general sale on the main games since xcom 2 is not discounted rn, or this is probably the biggest discount these collections will get?

6 : Anonymous2021/03/06 13:31 ID: gpy3f8e

Holy shit, because I have everything else in the bundle, I can get Chimera Squad for $2.70 plus tax.

ID: gpyzlb7

I probably should've skipped this month's humble choice since the main reason I got it was for Chimera Squad :/

ID: gpzpyo5

Same here. Given that its historical lowest price is $8.39, getting it for that price is a massive steal.

ID: gpy4zls

Incredible. I just paid a buck fiddy CDN becaue I have all thr other games and sold some cards.

ID: gq3l7q6

XCOM gang rise up.

7 : Anonymous2021/03/06 13:24 ID: gpy1w1c

I am unable to purchase this bundle because it keeps giving me a duplicate items error for already owning XCOM: Enemy Unknown. Anyone else having this issue?

ID: gpy5nxu

Yep, same here. I think what's happening is that it's adding the XCOM Enemy Unknown Pack instead of the individual items. With XC1, 2, and Chimera already in my library, it shows as $18.22 in the store, but jumps to $20.24 in cart with XCOM 1 and doesn't let me complete purchase.

Adding the Enemy Unknown pack by itself to cart adds the base game too, hence why I think it's the pack and not individual items.

ID: gpzk8ic

Yup and I can't see a way to fix it or contact support to have it resolved.

ID: gpzpkp2

I didn't own any of the games in the bundle and it still gave me an error.

I bypassed the issue by getting XCOM: Enemy Unknown Complete Pack, XCOM® 2 Collection and then the ultimate collection.

I think it was even cheaper than outright buying the ultimate collection (30.27€ vs 35.17€)

ID: gq1sj4e

Thanks for writing in to report this issue.

We have forwarded it to the appropriate team so they can take a look at it.

We don't have an estimation of when the issue may be resolved, but we recommend that you periodically check the store to see if it has been resolved.

Also, if you would like to try to expedite resolving of the issue, feel free to try contacting the game's support team directly to see if they can report the matter to their publishing team.

You can reach XCOM 2 support by using the information from the Official Support section here.

We apologize for any inconvenience that these errors may have caused.

Steam support said this. Hope it gets fixed soon-ish.

ID: gpzq43w

Same here :/

8 : Anonymous2021/03/06 12:45 ID: gpxvdlo

I could get Chimera Squad for an astonishingly low price, but for some reason Steam thinks part of the collection is in another collection in my shopping cart, but I only have one item in the cart.

Anyone knows the issue?

ID: gpymazx

Same problem here. I only have XCOM 2 and WOTC, but get the same message for the rest

ID: gq0okpn

I could finally bought Chimera Squad by buying first XCOM Enemy Unknow Complete Pack (i didnt have anything) and XCOM® 2 Collection BUNDLE (i was missing some dlcs), so when i tried to buy it the only missing game in the bundle was chimera squad, it also resulted cheaper by this way 🙂 Maybe this helps someone.

83% off, and you still miss at point-blank range.

I wonder if it's too much to hope for a deterministic luck system like in Hard West.

11 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:59 ID: gpzeip4

Xcom 2 is one of my favorite games ever and I'm jealous if you haven't experienced it yet. Definitely worth grabbing it.

ID: gpztaog

I’m right there with you, Commander.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:38 ID: gpyuupy

If anyone is in the same boat as me, where you have all of XCOM Enemy Unknown + DLCs, but nothing for XCOM 2 or Chimera Squad, this looks like it will be a monster deal when XCOM2/DLC are discounted during a sale. If the math holds true, XCOM 2 dropping to its common sale price of 19.99CAD would drop the bundle from 40.99CAD to about 24.78CAD to me, and the DLCs being discounted would add up too; if XCOM 2 goes to 6.40CAD as it did in February, it will be an even bigger steal.

tl;dr, this collection should drop massively in price at the next Steam Sale, where XCOM2 and DLCs will likely be discounted

13 : Anonymous2021/03/06 19:40 ID: gq04wvu

Is anyone else having trouble actually buying the collection? When I try to purchase it, steam blocks me stating :

"You cannot complete your transaction because you are attempting to purchase an item that is already included in another packaged item in your cart. Please check your cart to verify that you are not purchasing an item multiple times. The most common cause would be purchasing DLC along with a deluxe version of a product that already includes the same DLC."

I don't have anything else in my cart... wtf

ID: gq0bq4s

Some friends were having that issue yesterday. We have no idea why. It fixed itself later in the day.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/06 13:22 ID: gpy1fsi

Meanwhile, I keep waiting for Enemy Within to hit five dollars, and it ain't never gonna happen.

ID: gpy6b79

I thought we were kindred spirits when I misread this as Evil Within. Can't seem to get it with DLC for as cheap as I got the sequel (at five dollars).

It is curious about Enemy Withihn though, luckily I got it sometime in the golden days of Humble Bundle.

ID: gpzllk4

Same but with WotC actually being cheaper than EW I'm just gonna skip to the sequel.

ID: gpzjcii

I'm all about setting limits, but sometimes you just gotta cut the difference. It might dip that low at some point in the future for a time, but the history suggests you're not gonna find a deal better than 6 or 7 bucks and, frankly, it's worth it.

ID: gq25z2f

FYI it regularly drops to $2 on Android and iOS. Although I realize not everyone likes gaming on mobile.

ID: gpy81xu


15 : Anonymous2021/03/06 18:15 ID: gpzpun4

I already own most of the stuff in the bundle, inculding XCOM 1. Steam doesn't let me buy the bundle / use the check out, because I already own it. I really want to buy it for Chimera Squad!

You are unable to complete your transaction because you are trying to purchase an item that is already included in another item package in your cart. Please check your cart to make sure you are not purchasing items more than once. This is often the case when you purchase DLC along with a deluxe version of a product that already contains that DLC.

ID: gpzxl70

Update: I contacted the support. They are aware of the problem.

16 : Anonymous2021/03/06 12:39 ID: gpxtzos

How long does this deal run for? Anybody know?

ID: gpzj0hd

The complete your bundle part of the discount is permanent, but the individual games (and thus total bundle price) go up on the 18th.

ID: gpxvd0h

Not sure, but I am guessing from the sales of the games. It would be ends March 18 or it could be a permanent bundle.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/06 13:25 ID: gpy23jl

The store says it's 3,91€ for me since I have everything but Chimera and one DLC but when I add the pack to the cart it wants me to also buy XCOM1 (which I already have) so it goes up to 5,26€.

Can anybody help?

18 : Anonymous2021/03/06 14:02 ID: gpy9q3n

ok this is weird. my price for this is 9,50, but when i put it in my card it changes to 10,85.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:21 ID: gpyqwlf

I'll always advocate for thia game! War of the Chosen is a must -- not just for the extra content but it has big performance upgrades.

ID: gq0bfra

Not putting performance optimisations in the base game is an anti-consumer move.

20 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:27 ID: gpz6yzw

If you have all the xcom 1 & 2 stuff it makes chimera squad like 2.50$

21 : Anonymous2021/03/06 17:10 ID: gpzgqcw

The Bureou: XCOM Declassified being hated is a disservice and injustice to the game. Sure it's not XCOM in gameplay, but it's more like Star Wars: Republic Commando with some Mass Effect-like storytelling put in '60s America, and it's a freaking good tactical TPS at that (there is pause for syncing up attacks much like in Mass Effect). Just play it on high difficulty from the start.

ID: gq26hbk

Yeah, I like that game too. I was no hardcore oldschool XCOM fanatic so that might have helped.

It was a much lower budget/scope game compared to Mass Effect and you could see that but overall it was an experience I am glad I got to play through, even the story was decent.

I think it was one of those games where being part of the brand made it perform worse than it would have otherwise.

22 : Anonymous2021/03/06 17:12 ID: gpzh3yc

8 bucks for the 2 war of the chosen and chimera squad dlc seem worth it ?

ID: gq1umln

Haven't played Chimera Squad yet (just picked up the collection for 2.70€ with CS being the only item I didn't own, which is an amazing deal), but WOTC alone is worth that deal. It's a great expansion, Reapers are so fucking cool and so are most of the new mechanics. Only thing that can get somewhat annoying is the constant blabbering from the Chosen lol.

Anyway, great expansion, absolutely recommended.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/07 16:57 ID: gq416f4

The duplicate item on checkout issue still exists.

24 : Anonymous2021/03/06 12:38 ID: gpxtpt4

Since I’ve got XCOM 1, I can get it for $31. Is this the cheapest way to get XCOM 2 w/ all DLC?

ID: gpy2wdz

Seems like the bulk of the package price is for XCOM2 so maybe it's best to get that from a different supplier and then complete the collection

ID: gpy5vir

It may not be, as it is about $0.20 cheaper for War of the Chosen DLCs in the XCOM 2 Ultimate bundle 🙂

ID: gpxyh2t

I've seen it go for $20-25 on Wingamestore before, but that's the range of the historical low AFAIK

ID: gpyhkwy

You're also getting Chimera Squad which is its own game. If that adds any value to you.

25 : Anonymous2021/03/06 14:48 ID: gpyks26

Chimera Squad is crazy expensive in my region, I got Wotc, it's dlc, and CS for a quarter of CS regular price.

26 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:48 ID: gpyxd0n

DlC for Xcom2 worth it for 6$ if I haven't even started playing Xcom2 yet?

ID: gq08xm4

Only if you are the kind of person that likes to replay the campaign. Highly advised you play vanilla xcom2 before going in to war of the chosen as it massively ups the difficulty/complexity.

On the upside it does significantly change up the gameplay enough that a second play through with the dlc enabled is a fresh expirience.

ID: gq09oyy

Yes though War of the Chosen is the only DLC that really changes gameplay substantially as it's the only actual expansion for the game. It adds thee bosses two new factions and two new classes of solider as well plus the various missions that tie these new things seamlessly into the main story of the game as well as adding new overworld mechanics. The other DLCs add mini bosses, extra missions with playable robots as well as new gear you can equip.

27 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:26 ID: gpz6rc0

It's saying I can get Chimera Squad and the Tac Legacy pack for only $6, what a steal.

Wasn't this 93% off a couple weeks ago?

ID: gpy7v2a

According to IsThereAnyDeal it is the lowest since it was created.

And according to SteamDB it was created on the 4th March. Since then it had the same discount.

ID: gpz38mx

That was just XCOM 2 I think.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:16 ID: gpypwdb

The only thing missing for me is Slingshot Pack.

Is it even worth it?

ID: gpzigco

It's a little less than $2. If you're planning to play EW then sure why not? It's 3 difficult unique missions that give some good rewards.

31 : Anonymous2021/03/06 18:08 ID: gpzov41

I have XCOM 2 and WOTC and can't purchase the rest since it thinks I'm getting a duplicate. What a shame.

ID: gq1nxg6

Strange. I had both of those plus EU/EW and I had no issues with the purchase.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/06 20:22 ID: gq0d9r9

It is going to get discounted during the summer sale though right?

ID: gq2ur20

It will but no guarantee to the same degree. It might just as well be just 70-75% then. Right now, the bundle has been just introduced, this appears to be an introductory offer, may not repeat again.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/06 23:45 ID: gq1i8j9

Amazing deal!!! Only needed War of the Chosen and it was much cheaper to buy the X-Com ultimate pack (AUD$7) vs buying it solo (AUD$14)

34 : Anonymous2021/03/07 01:14 ID: gq1v6zg

I want XCOM 3. It would also be cool seeing a modern war or ww2 game with the XCOM combat system

ID: gq2m23l

It's quite possible this bundle was introduced in anticipation of XCOM 3 announcement.

35 : Anonymous2021/03/07 01:37 ID: gq1xjy6

highly recommended if you have never played xcom

36 : Anonymous2021/03/07 04:02 ID: gq2btmi

Ooof great deal on Chimera squad (have all the rest but resistance warriors). Don't have control, so really a tough toss up between this and Humble.

ID: gq2w2nl

if there are enough other games in the bundle you want go for that. if you are leaning that way subscribe to humbles promo emails and wait untill the end of the month to buy it. hopefully they will send a promo for it and you don't forget about it by then.

37 : Anonymous2021/03/07 04:14 ID: gq2cvhe

How common is this deal? I played enemy unknown on my xbox but don't any of them on steam.

ID: gq2lzjm

Hard to say. The ultimate collection has been just introduced, doesn't even exist on steamdb yet, so no history of sales for it yet, so no way to predict if it'll go on sale like this again or will be more moderate in future.

ID: gq2vtlb

the worshop items for xcom2 make owning it on steam a must

38 : Anonymous2021/03/07 21:40 ID: gq55097

Just FYI, you can save a little bit more if you use XCOM 2 Collection to get any missing DLCs first and then buy the Ultimate Collection. The former offers 74% discount vs 73% for the latter. Could be regional, not sure.

39 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:08 ID: gpyoitf

Having never played an XCOM and already owning the first one it seems like I should just skip it and start with 2. Are any of these DLCs necessary or skippable or should I just get the ultimate bundle that's also on sale?

ID: gpz26wg

If you already own 1 I wouldn't skip it.

If you're set on playing 2... There's a couple of small content dlc and a full fledged expansion. War of the Chosen (the expansion) is very very good but if you haven't played the game before it's not a terrible idea playing vanilla first. So you either play it safe and see if you like the game before purchasing the dlc or you buy them in a bundle. You technically can skip the smaller dlc (specially the Tactical Legacy Pack) but War of the Chosen adds so much good content you'd be missing out.

ID: gpyvpmw

Do people say skip the first game?

Honestly, I should love XCOM as I love turn based games. I have attempted a couple times with a total of 10 hours and the game never clicks with me. I'm thinking if I should try again, or go with xcom2

40 : Anonymous2021/03/07 03:47 ID: gq2aeb1

Should I start from XCOM: Enemy Unknown or can I just hop onto XCOM 2?

ID: gq2w6fs

the only thing 1 has over 2 is drones and hover suits&drones. as for story goes 2 is if you failed in one.

ID: gq2dm51

If you don't own any of the games you could skip EU and start with 2 since the second one is an improvement in every way. If you own both you might as well play the first one since it's still pretty good.

tl;dr: You won't miss anything by skipping EU but it's still worth playing.

Chimera Squad was the only thing I didn't own already from this collection and I got it dirt cheap thanks to the discount, so fuck no, it's great that it's in there!
