Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs Video Slot Out Now


Microgaming and Triple Edge Studios have released a third installment of video slot games featuring our heroine Lara Croft. This title, Lara Croft: Temples and Tombs, features re-hashed assets from Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and looks and sounds gorgeous!

I can't report too much on this addition to our universe because online gambling is restricted in the U.S., but other countries should be able to play it online and on various devices.

The previous slot games are titled Tomb Raider and Tomb Raider: Secret of the Sword, which you can probably look up and play also. I hope to someday find a way to play these titles just for fun.

The Making of a Tomb Raider Released Online



"Square Enix is proud to present the feature length film, “The Making of a Tomb Raider.” Previously debuted as a unique in-cinema event, the Lara Croft inspired movie follows renowned BASE jumper Clair Marie as she recreates iconic action sequences from Tomb Raider.

Relive memorable scenes from the 2013 release of Tomb Raider, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and the recently released Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Watch as Clair scales up jagged rock faces and leap like Lara."

At last! I am so glad that this little treat has finally been released to the public! I wanted to go to the nearest theater in Utah to see this so bad, but I could not make it. Best enjoyed on larger screens with a side of popcorn!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Nightmare DLC


The third installment of Shadow of the Tomb Raider's DLC collection is available now individually or as part of the Season Pass. It's titled "The Nightmare" and it couldn't be more fitting! Lara must face her greatest foe... herself, in absolutely chilling scenes from her past brought on by "The White Breath". A trial that Lara must pass in order to obtain its power. 

Dodge your way through a brand new Challenge Tomb in single player or co-op modes, gear up with the new Fear Incarnate Pack including The Grip of Fear Axes and alternate versions, and obtain The White Breath Skill. This DLC has been my favorite so far! The way the story plays out in The Manor is fantastic and the tomb is very reminiscent of classic Tomb Raiders. Be sure to check it out!

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Pillar DLC



Shadow of the Tomb Raider: The Pillar is the second piece of DLC content released for latest game in the Tomb Raider saga. Discover another ancient Mayan artifact while battling Trinity and dodging a treacherous lightning storm that is reminiscent of the inclement weather of Yamatai and Siberia. I like to think that the storms connect the trilogy in an underlying narrative. Maybe it's Himiko? Maybe it's The Divine Source? Maybe it's Kukulkan? All dealing with immortality and the unknown.

Features of The Pillar DLC include the Sinchi Chiqa Battle Dress and an alternate version, the Oathtaker's Bow, the Thousand Eyes Skill, which allows Survival Instinct when moving through trees and between concealment walls, and Score Attack and Time Attack replay modes for the level. Two more main game tombs are available to play in these modes as well. This level is single-player only.

The Pillar is included in the Season Pass or can be purchased separately. Stay tuned, more DLC to come.
