XCOM 2 Collection drops on Switch today, and videos are starting to surface showing off the package in action. Continue on below for a bunch of new footage.

XCOM 2 Collection includes the main game, four DLC packs (Resistance Warrior Pack, Anarchy’s Children, Alien Hunters, Shen’s Last Gift), and the War of the Chosen expansion.

Civilization VI received its Maya & Gran Colombia Pack this week, which can be obtained through the New Frontier Pass or individually. A bunch of content was added and there’s also a pretty significant update for all players – even without having purchased the DLC.

Here’s the full rundown as to everything that’s new and updated:

2K Games has shared the latest look at the New Frontier Pass for Civilization VI. A new video published today offers up a first look at the Gran Colombia civilization and its leader, Simón Bolívar. The Maya & Gran Colombia Pack will begin the New Frontier Pass festivities on May 21.

2K Games revealed a New Frontier Pass for Civilization VI this week that will introduce a ton of new content over the next year.

Publisher 2K and developer Firaxis have announced the New Frontier Pass for Civilization VI, a season pass that encompasses eight new civilizations, nine new leaders, six new game modes, and more. Players can expect new content to arrive in the form of six DLC packs delivered on a bimonthly basis between May 21, 2020 and March 2021.

Those who purchase the New Frontier Pass will receive the Teddy Roosevelt and Catherine De Medici Persona Packs as exclusive bonuses. These offer “a brand-new take on a favorite leader, with a new leader model and background, new gameplay bonuses and an updated agenda that reflects the changes to the leader’s personality.” 2K says Rough Rider Teddy “excels at keeping the peace on his home continent” whereas Magnificence Catherine “can use Luxuries to overwhelm the world with Culture and Tourism.” Both Persona Packs will be available with the second DLC Pack in July.

To prepare for the launch of XCOM 2 Collection on Switch in late May, 2K Games has put together a video explaining everything you need to know about the game. We’ve included it below.

Civilization VI has been given a much-needed update on Switch. Version 1.2.2.0 is out now for all players.

Update: 2K says it’s working on a fix and has a workaround (see below).


Original: Civilization VI’s latest update appears to be causing major issues on Switch. Due to a bug, players have reported that the game is crashing just as they’re about to win a game. It doesn’t appear to be limited to a small subset of users and is happening regularly.

2K Games has yet to comment on the situation nor is there any word on any imminent patch to address these problems. If we do receive a status update, we’ll be sure to let you know.
