Glossary Entry: Expansion pack

Quick Definition

An expansion pack is a set of additional levels, items, and other content* for an existing game. These are sold as a separate product, so you'll need to have purchased both the expansion and the game itself in order to use them.

Today, these have been almost completely replaced by DLC*, which serves the same purpose.
