What Does XPAC Mean in a Text?

XPAC means Expansion Pack in an online gaming context.

In a gaming context, an XPAC or Expansion Pack is a block of new content for a game that was not included in the initial release.

Usually purchased (as opposed to free), an XPAC typically involves new areas in which the game can be played, new effects, or a completely new scenario (in effect, a new standalone game). The purpose of an XPAC is to extend the life of a game, ensuring players can continue to enjoy the the characters and scenarios they've come to love long after they explored the whole game area, completed every level, or accomplished the set task.

Common XPACs include ones for the following titles:
  • Assassin's Creed IV
  • BioShock 2
  • Bloodborne
  • Borderlands 2
  • Dark Souls II
  • Diablo II
  • Dragon Age
  • Fallout 3
  • Half-Life 2
  • Mass Effect 2
  • StarCraft II
  • The Last of Us
