Those who play XCOM: Enemy Unknown will be happy to hear that its Slingshot downloadable content is now available to play on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC today. To celebrate the launch of this downloadable content  Firaxis, the games creator, has launched a new trailer (which you can watch below) to show fans of the game what they’ll be able to experience in the new downloadable content. Firaxis has also released a few high-res screenshots to view as well.

The Slingshot downloadable content is going to cost players $6.99 on the PlayStation Network, PC (or the Steam client), and 560 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. This new downloadable content introduced three all new maps tired to Council missions, a new playable squad member with its own voice and storyline, and some other character customization options. The Slingshot downloadable content is definitely on the cheaper side of things compared to other games. If you have the game and play it on the PC, you can hit the source link below to be taken to the downloadable content.

On another note, players have been begging for a larger variety of maps. While the addition of three may not be enough, at least there’s something new and fresh to play!

Do you play XCOM: Enemy Unknown? Are you going to be picking up the downloadable content? Do you think that the addition of three new maps is enough, or should the variety be larger than that? Make sure to let us know in the comments below!
