Posted on November 9, 2013, Kevin Thielenhaus XCOM: Enemy Within Achievements
XCOM: Enemy Within is all about customization. It might not be so obvious, but the developers have upgraded XCOM: Enemy Unknown with significant new options for upgrading the operatives.
The achievements bear that out — earn gamerscore for putting new “Meld” upgrades on your troops, or by giving the soldiers mechanical arms, legs, or entire bodies so they can pilot massively deadly mech-suits. That’s not all, either. Veteran soldiers can earn special commendations that add even more improvement to their abilities.
That’s just a drop in the bucket, as far as content goes. When you mix in new alien soldiers, an entire human-based faction, and loads of new story missions (that are completely optional) you’ve got a hefty expansion pack. Check out those additional features, and some other challenges, in the complete list of achievements below.
Or dig deeper into the expansion with our list of XCOM: Enemy Within cheats. If you’re looking for help getting starting or with the difficult missions later in the campaign, check out the XCOM: Enemy Within walkthrough.
