Shadow of the Tomb Raider's DLC plans include monthly challenge tombs


Consult the calendar!

Square Enix has opened up about its DLC plans for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. After launch on September 14, the game will get seven content drops — one a month — from October through April.

“The Season Pass delivers seven new adventures called ‘Paths,’ with each Path including new narrative, new missions, a Challenge Tomb, a new weapon, a new outfit and a new skill. The first Challenge Tomb will also introduce new co-op functionality. Finally, Season Pass owners receive an exclusive weapon, outfit, and skill on Day One!”

How extensive this content is remains to be seen, but I like that monthly schedule.

I’ve had a decent enough time with the prior two games, so I’m definitely down to finish out the trilogy. The new Mayan apocalypse backdrop speaks to me. That said, I can already envision myself waiting for Shadow‘s eventual “game of the year” re-release with all of this DLC bundled together.
