Square Enix has announced details about the first round of Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC, The Forge. This add-on is the first of seven post-launch content releases. For those who own the Season Pass, The Forge will be accessible at no extra charge. Purchasing The Forge on its own is an option, costing $4.99.
The publisher has provided the following synopsis that talks about what to expect from this new add-on:
A completely new adventure, “The Forge” is the first of seven monthly DLC adventures available through the Season Pass, providing players with an abundance of new content, challenge tombs, co-op experiences, weapons and outfits, Score Attack and Time Attack modes, and additional narrative side missions.
In “The Forge,” Lara must brave the lava-flooded Forge of the fallen gods to uncover the secrets of Kuwaq Yaku. Throughout her journey, Lara will uncover details about a friend’s ancient legacy, and overcome a danger long thought to be lost in flame. “The Forge” delivers a brand-new challenge tomb, playable in both solo and co-op. Players who complete the challenge tomb will be rewarded with the Grenadier skill, Brocken outfit, and Umbrage 3-80 weapon.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider recently launched, adding a third entry to the rebooted series. Our review of Lara’s latest adventure applauded Shadow’s stealth combat and exploration options. However, the story left much to be desired.
The Forged Announced as First Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. “The Forge” DLC goes live across all platforms on November 13, 2018.
