Official DLC Description
»

Contact is a military science fiction-themed spin-off expansion that explores the question:

What if humanity suddenly encounters extraterrestrial intelligence on earth?

It includes several new weapons, clothing, vests, vehicles, handheld equipment and radio backpacks, along with the brand new Livonia terrain, a 163 km2-sized landlocked Eastern European NATO country. Two new factions are also added in the form of the Livonian Defense Force and Russian Spetsnaz. Several Polish and Russian radio protocols are now available for use by both players and AI units.

Existing gear used by the NATO faction has been expanded with to include woodland-camouflaged gear, and over one hundred props are bundled for mission creators to use in the editor.

The expansion's First Contact singleplayer campaign sets players in the shoes of Aiden Rudwell, a NATO drone specialist sent to investigate signs of supposed extraterrestrial life in the isolated Livonian countryside. Over the course of the campaign, players will engage in field science, electronic warfare and combat reconnaissance.

But as they will soon discover...they are not alone.
