Take a Slingshot at XCOM: Enemy Unknown

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
XCOM: Enemy Unknown has revitalised the strategy genre on the Xbox 360, although only if you like steep difficulty curves. Those who are fans of both of these things will be pleased to know that the "Slingshot" DLC has arrived. The DLC brings five new achievements worth a total of 100G.

In this new set of linked Council missions, you will meet an enigmatic Triad operative, divert an alien ship’s course, and do battle with the aliens in the skies over China. The content pack also includes new customization options and a new soldier with a unique voice and story.
Take a look at this trailer showing your mission orders to stop the Hong Kong underworld:
