If you’ve been taken away from Lara Croft’s adventures in Shadow of the Tomb Raider lately with all the other new releases, then the arrival of the first piece of DLC may draw you back in. It’s time to take on “The Forge” as she attempts to overcome the lava-filled tomb in the name of uncovering secrets!
In “The Forge”, Lara partakes in a journey that sees her needing to survive the fiery tomb challenge that is the Forge of the Fallen Gods. Here, she’ll unveil the secrets of a lost city in Kuwaq Yaku and details regarding a friend’s ancient legacy. Dangers lurk within this tomb, including a danger that many thought had long since been lost in the flames. Should you manage to conquer the challenge, either alone or in co-op, then you’ll unlock numerous rewards – the Grenadier skill, the Brocken outfit, and the Umbrage 3-80 weapon. Alternatively, you can purchase those bits individually for £2.39.
The first of a total seven pieces of downloadable content incoming, “The Forge” can be purchased as of now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, with us Xbox gamers needing to head on over to the Microsoft Store where it’s priced at just £3.99. Unless you already own the Season Pass, in which case it’ll be free for you.
You can also take this time to build your Shadow of the Tomb Raider experience even more with the purchase of the Croft Edition Extras as a standalone pack. For £6.39 this will enhance your standard edition of the game with a couple of new outfits, a pistol and a shotgun. Further to that is the availability of the Digital Deluxe Edition Extras too – for £9.99 you’ll be given access to the Robes of Puka Huk and Puka Huk’s Bow – Original Game Soundtrack
