Playstation 4 owners will finally have the chance to play Rise of the Tomb Raider when it hits shelves on October 11 of this year. Square Enix announced the release will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the original Tomb Raider, and will have new DLC added to the game. Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will include two new single player missions titled “Blood Ties” and “Lara’s Nightmare”.
Blood Ties will allow players to explore Croft Manor and discover secrets within, while they defend it from zombies in Lara’s Nightmare. Furthermore, the Blood Ties DLC can be played in VR exclusively for Playstation VR. Also, a new co-op Endurance Mode will be added where two players must survive the elements and enemies by hunting, collecting, and crafting. Finally, an Extreme Survivor mode has been added where all the checkpoints have been taken out and the only way to save the game is to forage enough resources to start a campfire.
Those that previously bought Rise of the Tomb Raider’s season pass will have this content available for them when it’s all released. Those that purchase Rise of the Tomb Raider will receive the game, all the DLC (including everything mentioned), and a handful of Lara Croft skins. Pre-ordering the Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will also get you an art book.
