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.
