Square Enix has brought online a new video which looks at the upcoming Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC. Available as a free download to all Season Pass holders, or as a standalone purchase, the first of seven new DLC adventures, The Forge, will launch worldwide on November 13th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
Join the Eidos-Montréal team as they dive into these fresh experiences, which deliver all-new challenge tombs many playable in co-op. The team explores Tomb Raider’s rich lore with multiple side-missions, and even more customization possibilities with unique outfits, weapons and skills.
In her DLC debut, Lara must brave the lava-flooded Forge of the fallen gods to uncover the secrets of Kuwaq Yaku. Throughout her journey, she 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.
The seven monthly DLC releases provide players with an abundance of fresh content, challenge tombs, co-op experiences, weapons and outfits, and additional narrative side missions. Additionally, The Forge will introduce Score Attack and Time Attack modes.
Lara Croft has mastered an unforgiving jungle, explored vast ruin-filled landscapes, 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.
In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara must master a deadly jungle, overcome terrifying tombs, and persevere through her darkest hour. As she races to save the world from a Maya apocalypse, Lara will ultimately be forged into the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
In the game, you will have to master an unforgiving jungle setting in order to survive. Explore underwater environments filled with crevasses and deep tunnel systems. Outgunned and outnumbered, Lara must use the jungle to her advantage. Strike suddenly and disappear like a jaguar, use mud as camouflage, and instill fear in enemies to sow chaos.
Developed by Eidos Montréal in conjunction with Crystal Dynamics, Shadow of the Tomb Raider was released on September 14, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Windows PC/Steam.
