Who needs guns when you have a Slingshot.
Firaxis and 2K Games have announced that XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be getting a couple of new DLC packs, and one will add new content to the single player campaign. More aliens to kill? Sounds good to me.
The Slingshot Content Pack will add a series of new Council missions to the single player campaign, and the Elite Soldier Pack will make some of the pre-order DLC available for anyone to purchase.
Here are the details, straight from 2K Games:
Slingshot Content Pack – The first of two add-on content packs for XCOM: Enemy Unknown, will be available soon. In this new set of linked Council missions, gamers will meet an enigmatic Triad operative, divert an alien ship’s course, and do battle with the aliens in the skies over China. The Slingshot Content Pack includes three new maps tied to the Council missions, a new playable squad character with a unique story and voice and new character customization options. The release date and pricing of the Slingshot Content Pack will be announced soon.
Elite Soldier Pack – Originally free for those who pre-ordered XCOM: Enemy Unknown or purchased the game at launch, is now available for purchase for $4.99 (PlayStation Network) / 400 Microsoft Points (Xbox Live online entertainment network) / $4.99 (Windows PC). The Elite Soldier Pack provides the ultimate tools for soldier customization in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, including:
- Classic X-COM soldier: Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return fully modernized.
- Soldier Deco packs: Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.
- Complete color customization: A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad’s look.
