XCOM 2's third DLC expansion, Shen's Last Gift, just had a surprise launch tonight.


The add-on follows the exploits of chief engineer Lily Shen, who must infiltrate an ADVENT facility to retrieve her late father's secret final project.

Priced at Ł7.99, Shen's Last Gift features an all new combat class.

Eurogamer strategy king Chris Bratt considered XCOM 2 to be an essential title.

Console players feeling left out should recall that Firaxis' acclaimed sequel will launch on PS4 and Xbox One on 9th September.

XCOM 2 is currently 40 per cent off as part of Steam's Summer Sale. As such, it will cost Ł20.99 until 4th July.
