After launching last month to great reviews from critics, Shadow of the Tomb Raider is receiving it’s first piece of post-launch DLC content.
When it launched, we said that “The setting is more engaging and fun to explore than previous outings, character development is far superior, and the combat encounters felt designed for Lara to be a hunter.” We also spent a ton of time getting to 100% completion and earning all the achievements, so we’re looking forward to jumping back into Lara’s world.
The first DLC, titled “The Forge,” will be launching on November 13th for all platforms simultaneously. This is the first of seven pieces of content coming monthly after November, and will be available for all season pass holders, or sold separately for $4.99.
Per Press Release:
In “The Forge”, Lara must brave the lava-flooded Forge of the fallen gods to uncover the secrets of Kuwaq Yaku. Throughout her journey, Lara will uncover details about a friend’s ancient legacy, and overcome a danger long thought to be lost in flame. “The Forge” delivers a brand-new challenge tomb, playable in both solo and co-op. Players who complete the challenge tomb will be rewarded with the Grenadier skill, Brocken outfit, and Umbrage 3-80 weapon.
A completely new adventure, “The Forge” is the first of seven monthly DLC adventures available through the Season Pass, providing players with an abundance of new content, challenge tombs, co-op experiences, weapons and outfits, Score Attack and Time Attack modes, and additional narrative side missions.
Lara Croft® has mastered an unforgiving jungle, explored vast landscapes filled with tombs, and battled Trinity for the fate of Humanity, all set against the backdrop of the Maya apocalypse. Yet even more adventures await in the hidden City of Paititi. New mysteries and challenges will arise, friendships and rivalries will deepen, and above all, new tombs will be discovered in a series of DLCs that expand the world of Shadow of the Tomb Raider.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now worldwide on Xbox One, PlayStation®4, and Windows PC/Steam. The Season Pass is available for $29.99 or “The Forge” can be purchased as a standalone for $4.99.
