XCOM 2's first expansion is coming soon. 2K and Firaxis have announced the add-on, called Anarchy's Children, will come out on March 17 on PC (but it has nothing to do with St Patrick's Day).

Anarchy's Children introduces more than 100 new "exotic" soldier customization options, including more hairstyles, face paint, armor, decals, helmets and masks, among other items.

Anarchy's Children included with XCOM 2's $20 Reinforcement Pack or it can be purchased by itself for $5. Two further add-ons, Alien Hunters and Shen's Last Gift, will be released this summer.

Firaxis also said it will release a new patch for XCOM 2, presumably alongside the DLC, that will introduce "performance optimizations" and gameplay fixes. More details will be announced "very soon."

XCOM 2 arrived for PC in February. Console versions have not been ruled out, but Firaxis has yet to announce anything about bringing the game to PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

In other news about XCOM 2, modders have been busy bringing "Star Wars" and Bob Ross to the game.
