Rise of the Tomb Raider Continues Next Week with Final Story DLC, Cold Darkness Awakened

on March 22, 2016 11:00 AM

The story of Lara Croft grew much bigger last year with the critically-acclaimed Rise of the Tomb Raider, and soon the adventurer will get a new chapter with the game’s next story-based DLC arriving next week, and having the famous heroine fighting off even darker supernatural forces.

Microsoft and developer Crystal Dynamics revealed the next DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider will be “Cold Darkness Awakened,” which will release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC on March 29th, 2016.

“Cold Darkness Awakened” will have Lara fighting off “an army of nightmarish predators” inside an abandoned Cold War research base, with a mysterious illness seeping in to the wilderness and infecting nearby military forces, causing Lara to investigate and shut down the contamination before it gets any further.

The DLC will also act as the final piece of downloadable content for Rise of the Tomb Raider, with “The Cold Darkness Awakened” to be available as both a standalone DLC and as part of the game’s Season Pass, which is available for $29.99.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is available now for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC – the game will also release later this year for PS4. In the meantime, you can check out a new trailer featuring some brief glimpses of “The Cold Darkness Awakened” below:
