‘XCOM: Enemy Unknown’ DLC arriving next week

xcomheader

Firaxis Games detailed the first piece of DLC for XCOM: Enemy Unknown last month, and we’ll finally be able to get our grubby hands on it next week. Slingshot will hit the 360, PS3, and PC simultaneously on December 4th, and cost 560 MSP and $6.99 respectively.

New story content will be added in the form of Council missions, and they will center in and around China. These missions will bring with them new maps, and a new unique character named Zhang. Unfortunately, you’ll have to start a new game to access this content, but it will provide some powerful rewards. Three missions in total will be added, and each will be scattered throughout the campaign, in hopes of providing more context to the story.

Will you be taking on the alien invasion once more to experience Slingshot? Let us know in the comments below.
