2K Games has announced that XCOM: Enemy Unknown
will soon be receiving two new single player content packs. The first of the two packs is the "Slingshot" Content Pack, a set of linked Council missions with a unique story arc, that take place on three new maps.
Over the course of the new missions, players will have to divert an alien ship’s course, and do combat against the aliens in the skies over China. In addition to the three new maps, which will unfortunately not be available in multiplayer, the DLC will include a new playable character, Zhang, an enigmatic Triad operative with a unique story and voice. New character customization options will also become available. A second pack will be announced at a later date.
The price and release date for “Slingshot” have yet to be revealed but will be announced soon. The previously pre-order only bonus content, "Elite Soldier Pack" was made available this week for a price of 400 MSP.
