XCOM has uncovered intel on a hidden ADVENT facility housing new high-tech weaponry. Lily Shen, Chief Engineer on the Avenger, has volunteered to accompany your most elite squad as they infiltrate this facility, so that she may help uncover and assess what impact this new alien tech will have in the battle to reclaim Earth,” explains the DLC’s blurb.

Part of XCOM 2‘s Reinforcement DLC pack, Firaxis advises you do not purchase Shen’s Last Gift separately ($10) if you already own the former, as you’ll be charged for it.
