If you are like me then chances are high that XCOM: Enemy Unknown has consumed your every waking hour. And, if you’re like me, then hearing about DLC/mods has you cheering – while groaning at the realization that you will not be getting any sleep any time soon.
Firaxis revealed a few days ago about a new DLC called Slingshot where fans of the series will find a threat has appeared in China requiring the player to enlist a new solider with his own preset facial features and voice.
The three part story arc will have players heading off to three new locations found in the DLC with a fairly powerful reward once the DLC is completed.
On top of this, Firaxis Producer Garth DeAngelis had a discussion with Joystiq about the lack of modding found in the game.
“It’s something that we’d like to resolve going forward, but we still have quite a few things on our plate that have been planned for a while.”
Given the expansive wealth of mods found in their last game, Civilization V, the lack of modding is odd, but time will tell how long players will see any form of mods in XCOM.
