The Nightmare Begins in New Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC
Journey through “The Nightmare,” as Lara Croft faces off against familiar enemies and fallen friends. Explore Croft Manor in a harrowing trial unlike anything she has faced before. In order to obtain a powerful weapon, Lara must conquer, in either single-player or co-op, the latest challenge tomb, “Howl of the Monkey Gods.” This DLC is available as part of the Shadow of the Tomb Raider experience now.
“The Nightmare” offers new customization options with the Scales of Q outfit, whose thick hide and solid bones provide twice as much resistance to melee attacks. The Grip of Fear axe possesses a primal design, optimized for climbing and fighting. When using the axe, enemies are more likely to be knocked down and stay down for longer periods. Finally, White Breath is the new skill that when fired, creates a cloud of hallucinogenic vapor on impact, poisoning enemies to fight against one another. Your Shadow of the Tomb Raider arsenal has just become that much more deadly.
As part of the update, tombs from the main campaign, “Judge’s Gaze,” “Underworld Gate,” “Howling Caves”, “Path of Battle,” and “Temple of the Sun” are all now playable in Score Attack and Time Attack modes.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now worldwide on Xbox One, PS4, and Windows PC/Steam. The Season Pass is available for $29.99 or “The Nightmare” can be purchased as a standalone for $4.99.
