Ships Ahoy - XCOM: Enemy Unknown Slingshot

2K Games announces the release of the Slingshot DLC for the Windows and console editions of XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Firaxis' strategy remake. They offer a new trailer to introduce the pack, saying this "introduces Zhang, the new enigmatic Triad operative who can be recruited to the XCOM cause, as well as the new Council missions, which will require players to rescue Zhang, divert the course of an alien battleship, and then do battle with the aliens in the skies over China. In addition to the maps and missions, this add-on content also includes new cosmetic customization options for your squad." Here's more on the release:

With the Slingshot Content Pack, players will meet an enigmatic Triad operative, divert an alien ship’s course, and do battle with the aliens in the skies over China in a new set of linked Council missions. 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.

Yeah, I didn't buy the last one either. I'll wait for them to go on sale.

Yup, that's what I did for Civ5; bought the "gold" edition or whatever it was called in an Amazon sale and redeemed it on Steam and it gave me all the DLC. I guarantee 2kgames will do the same thing with X-com as well eventually. I'll just wait till then or grab it on a nice sale if I really can't do without.

How are you guys liking the game? It sounds pretty awesome.

While simplified from the original, it's chock full of XCom goodness. Aliens, creepy atmosphere, research, base building, UFO interception, tactical combat, it's all there and tons of fun. I have 35 hours played since I bought it during the autumn sale. Do I wish for a bit more depth? Sure, but I can't complain too much. I'm just having too much fun.

This isn't much better than horse armour. People shouldn't buy it.

Other than the AI sometimes cheating on shots, everyone here loves it.


Damnit...I guess I'm gonna have to get it then. Thanks, guys!

It's well worth it. I wish they had done more with the strategy part, but the combat is so much fun it doesn't really matter.

It's showing now. At £5.49 ($9) I think I'll pass, as I've got enough games to keep me occupied until it goes on sale.

I usually don't see "new releases" on Steam until 10:00AM PST. I have gotten to the point where I just assume that will be the case with every release.

Kind of like with PSN...nothing seems to change or update until 5:00PM PST on Tuesday, even though the PSN newletter always says something like "new this week" when it hits my mailbox on Sunday.

I don't have a XBOX, but I assume it is fairly similar.
