XCOM's First DLC, Slingshot, Releases on December 4

On December 4, XCOM: Enemy Unknown will release its first DLC called Slingshot, which is more of a simple mission pack than a real expansion.

Here's the situation:

You can have the option to recruit Zhang, a former member of the Chinese Triads who is also a heavy weapons guy. But first, you need to escort him to safety once he appears via a Council mission.

What makes this mission pack stand out is that once Zhang becomes a part of your XCOM team, he gets really high stats and an exclusive look and voice pack. This is the first escort mission that takes place in different settings: a graveyard, a train station and an alien battleship IN FLIGHT. In addition, you can encounter Crysallids much earlier with this mission pack, giving you an earlier opportunity to autopsy their carcasses, and you can get earlier accesses to powerful weapons.

The DLC will cost $6.99 on PSN and Steam or 560 MS Points on Xbox Live. If you feel like kicking alien ass again, I don't see any harm picking this one up.  I expected something a little more, though.
