Sometimes you’ll hear of games getting Day-One DLC or Day-One Patches. Day one free content? That’s a new one.

You may have heard about Firaxis, the developers of XCOM 2, employing the makers of the popular XCOM Enemy Unkown mod “The Long War”, Long War Studios. Turns out, that was for a good reason. As of the writing of this article, XCOM 2 has been available for me to play for 3 hours. There are 3 free, professionally made mods available to download now.

One mod called the “Leader Pack” adds a whole new perk tree to the game. “Muton Centurion Alien Pack” adds a whole new alien type to the game. “SMG Pack” adds several new weapons to the game.

Thats 3 pieces of developer-made free content on the first day of a triple-A game release.
