Posted on October 19, 2012, CJ Miozzi XCOM: Enemy Unknown Steam Achievements Hint at DLC
A user on the 2K Forums pointed out the fact that there are 10 Steam achievements that shipped with XCOM: Enemy Unknown that currently have no known content associated with them — suggesting that they might be for upcoming DLC.
The achievements seem to point to 6 missions that can’t be found in the game: Portent, Confounding Light, Deluge, Gangplank, Friends in Low Places, and Furies. The achievement names and descriptions, when combined with Asian-style map elements found by data miners beneath XCOM’s hood, potentially point to DLC related to an Asian coastal area in which players discover a new ally. Speculation also points to a connection to 1995′s X-COM: Terror from the Deep, and that the DLC is set for a 60 day post-launch release.
You can view the achievements yourself here; they are the ones at the bottom of the list.
What do you think the DLC may be?
