This week’s XCOM 2 DLC adds a whole new unit class – and it’s robots

Robots for everyone, and perhaps closure for Shen, in the latest XCOM 2 content drop.

XCOM 2 has a new DLC pack called Shen’s last Gift. As the name suggests, it’s all about Chief Engineer Shen – and her father. You and the brilliant tinkerer must infiltrate an abandoned ADVENT facility to retrieve a robot prototype, Shen Senior’s final invention.

Successfully completing the mission unlocks robot units for your XCOM 2 squads, which is obviously awesome. You can catch a glimpse of them in action in the video above.

XCOM 2: Shen’s last Gift is available now through Steam. It’s $10 standalone, but is included in the Reinforcement Pack season pass – which is on sale at the moment and comes with the last two drops.

Just as a reminder, XCOM 2 is coming to PS4 and Xbox One in September.
