XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown Achievements

New Friend

Complete Friends in Low Places.   

During the first or second month (it will depend on how many missions you are offered in the first month,) you will receive a council mission and be given the option of a normal mission or the DLC mission. Select the DLC mission and complete it.

The mission follows the standard ‘extract VIP’ formula. The new character Zhang, will take on the role of the civilian and will only have the hunker down ability. The map is very smaller and has only minimal enemies, mostly Sectoids and Thin Men. Just be careful towards the end of the mission as a Chryssalid will show up. Once Zhang reaches the Skyranger, the achievement will unlock.

Anyone know how to access the DLC?

I've downloaded it and started a new game, but there is no new content as I can see...

That was what I thought as well.

I'm wondering if I have just been unlucky and haven't gotten them randomly, or if something else is amiss?

it's not necessary to start a new game.

i loaded up my save from right before i entered the gallop chamber, then started scanning until the dlc missions started popping up

you don't need to start a new game. i'm 7-9 months [i forget] into my first game, haven't built the gollop chamber yet cos i don't want to advance the story until i have at least 9 PSI colonels [in Hvy,Support, Sniper and Assault w decent WILLs.. getting just 7 has taken me this long so far]

and i bought this DLC today, played it, did 2 terror missions almost within 3 days[!!] after installing it then i get an option on the Mission Control asking me if i want to play original game or do the DLC mission.

so you don't nee to restart a new game. it did take about a month game time for the XCOM commission to ask me but it at least gives me an option to carry on w normal game or do the DLC.
but i think it is only BEFORE you build the Gollop Chamber. i think you have passed the point of
