Hey duders...

So I googled this and found this:

http://xcom.wikia.com/wiki/Slingshot_Content_Pack

Which just basically says this:

After a recent update, players don't have to make a new save in order to access the Slingshot missions.

...

But doesn't say anything more.. I've played like 4 or 5 hours into my game and haven't got a pop-up for a slingshot missions or whatev.. Playing on PC if that matters.

Thanks for the help.

I just recently finished my first playthrough of this game. I played through maybe the first 2/3rds of the game at release, but got distracted and just managed to get back to it a couple weeks ago. I never got any of the Slingshot mission prompts.

I started a new playthrough (Classic Ironman*) and was given the choice between the first Slingshot mission or a normal randomly created scenario on my second or third abduction mission.

My guess is that there's some sort of cut-off where if you've progressed through enough of the main plot, the game never offers you any Slingshot DLC missions.

* God this mode is hard.
