Square Enix has released “The Forge,” the first of seven new DLC expansions for the hit RPG “Shadow of the Tomb Raider”. The new DLC is available now, a free download to all Season Pass holders, and sold separately for PS4, PC, and Xbox One users.
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, gameplay modes, and new narrative side missions.
If you own Shadow of the Tomb Raider and you purchase the DLC content, you can invite a friend who also owns Shadow of the Tomb Raider to join your play session for co-op tomb raiding. Players can look forward to the second DLC release, “The Pillar,” arriving this December. More information on that DLC will be announced at a later date.
Additionally, two tombs from the main game, “Court of Death” and “Gate of Xibalba,” will be playable in Score Attack and Time Attack. “Court of Death” will be playable in those modes starting on November 13th, and “Gate of Xibalba” will be playable on November 27th, giving you some extra challenges over Thanksgiving break.
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.
