Boasting a new character, as well as new maps and missions, the Slingshot Content Pack for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now available. Meeting enigmatic Triad operative, Zhang, you'll join forces to divert the course of an alien vessel, while doing battle with extra-terrestrial forces over China.

Spread across a new set of Council missions, the Slingshot pack includes three new maps tied into the missions, with the all-new playable squad character also joined by a full complement of character customisation options, and a unique voice and story.

You can snap up the XCOM: Enemy Unknown Slingshot Content Pack from the Xbox Live Marketplace now for 560 Microsoft Points. Watch the new trailer below, and if you like what you see you can add it to your download queue here.

Hmm, good game and all, but this DLC does seem a little bit overpriced. I'll probably wait for a deal of the week or a sale.

I will wait for second DLC and pick them up together. Still, feels like a wasted potential. How cool would it be to have close quarters operative with say katana or something in spirit of Triads? Oh well, we will never find out now=/

Eh, it has 100 points and it's what, $7? I'll buy it on principle that this game should be supported. Can't wait to get into it.

Yeah price is a bit steep for sure. Was saying I will get this day one as I really love XCOM. But it goes against my principals to pay for something I find too expensive... Guess I'll wait for now, though I am really inclined to buy it.
