As a franchise it has sold more than 74 million copies, and whilst Lara Croft had a bit of a midlife crisis, since the 2013 reboot, the series has gone from strength to strength, no more so than with the release of Shadow of The Tomb Raider in 2018. Today though we see the final piece of DLC arrive for that game, as The Path Home launches as a free download exclusively to Season Pass holders.
Out now and available to access in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, The Path Home is the concluding piece of content for Lara’s latest adventure, with the free download arriving for those Xbox One, PS4 and PC Season Pass holders.
Set after the antics of the base game and following the end of Shadow of the Tomb Raider when the dust had settled and the battle seemed over, The Path Home sees Lara searching ancient tunnels to try and find her lost allies. This new journey comes complete with a brand-new challenge tomb, which contains a secret that’s been hidden for ages, alongside some other tasty little additions.
Also exclusive to the Season Pass are the new Midnight Sentinel outfit, which enables longer focus and perception durations, and the Silver Strike bow, which causes arrows to penetrate enemy body armor or even pierce multiple unarmored enemies. But in addition to that, a new Magic Touch skill allows Lara to consume fewer resources when crafting on the go.
Furthermore, those who have taken it upon themselves to go super deep with Shadow of the Tomb Raider will find that Score Attack and Time Attack are now playable for all tombs from the main game.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is one of those must-play titles, available right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Our full review of the base game should be taken in if it hasn’t already, and once you’re suitably settled, will find that a purchase of the Season Pass is a bit of a no-brainer, particularly now that The Path Home is exclusively available as part of it.
