Rise of the Tomb Raider gets DLC Season Pass
Additional content confirmed, game modes details
Xbox and Crystal Dynamics have announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will feature a DLC Season Pass, and also detailed some of the modes in the game.
Score Attack mode lets you replay levels from the game with a new set of rules, as you race the clock to post the best time and earn medals. Remnant Resistance mode lets you replay Hub spaces with a new set of goals. Finally, you can replay the game in Chapter Replay, which will let you keep the skills and equipment that you acquired on your first play-through.
Players will earn credits by completing challenges and exploring the world. These credits can be used to purchase Expedition Card packs. When used, Expedition Cards become modifiers in game modes outside of the single player campaign. Some Cards are humorous, such as Big Head Mode, while others can increase the challenge or give you special advantages. Expedition Cards can also be purchased with real-world currency.
Players who pre-order the game digitally will get The Remnant Resistance Pack, which includes the Remnant Outfit for Lara, which is a collection of animal skins and ancient Byzantine armor. In addition, the pack includes the Moon Shadow Handgun Skin as well as the rare “Bullet Resistance” foil card, which gives Lara extra resistance to gunfire.
Finally, there will be a season pass available for Rise of the Tomb Raider which includes a range of content. Three major releases will challenge you to survive the extreme conditions of Endurance Mode, explore a new tomb that houses an ancient terror in Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, and combat waves of infected predators in Cold Darkness Awakened.
The pass also contains new outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards beginning on Day 1 and continuing over four months.
Rise of the Tomb Raider launches exclusively on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on November 10th.
