XCOM: Enemy Unknown Getting More DLC

XCOM: Enemy Unknown launched on the 9th (the same day as Dishonored) and while copies may not be flying off the shelves at a rapid pace, it received some very glowing reviews.

Yesterday, the Elite Soldier Pack, previously pre-order only, launched for XCOM on the PlayStation Network at $4.99 and it includes the following:

  • Classic X-COM soldier: Players will instantly receive a new recruit in their barracks inspired by the original X-COM: UFO Defense. The iconic soldier with the blonde, flattop hairstyle will return fully modernized.
  • Soldier Deco packs: Players can customize their soldier with several aesthetic upgrades to armor suits, including the new Hyperion and Reaper soldier armor kits.
  • Complete color customization: A variety of colors and tints for all armor sets in the game allow players complete control to customize their squad’s look.

Next up for the strategy game is the Slingshot Content Pack. This will be getting a release date and price very soon, but we do know that it will feature a set of linked Council missions which take place on three new maps. In these missions, you’ll meet up with a Triad operative named Zhang and fight the aliens in the skies over China.

As for the next piece of DLC, 2K says that it is coming and everything will be announced at a later date.
