Lara Croft battles zombies in 'Rise of the Tomb Raider' next DLC

Following the release of Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Endurance Mode and Baba Yaga DLC, the third and final piece of all-new downloadable content is coming on march 29: Cold Darkness Awakened. This time Lara Croft will face waves of infected sort of zombies, taking a leap into the horror genre. Here are the plots of the Rise of the Tomb Raider’s DLCs:

Cold Darkness Awakened - Release date: March 29, 2016

Decommissioned during the Cold War, a dormant weapons research base has been breached, unleashing a mysterious affliction into the Siberian wilderness that transforms men into blood-thirsty, mindless killers. Lara must overcome increasingly dangerous waves of these infected adversaries while scavenging their equipment and crafting additional gear on the fly, in kill or be killed survival-combat. Fight for your life against new enemies and complete new challenges, while discovering a way to stop or perhaps even reverse this impending catastrophe. Includes the Ushanka outfit, which reduces Lara’s damage from melee attacks, the devastating Voidhammer shotgun, and the Cold Darkness Awakened Card Pack which includes over 15 new Expedition Cards.

Cold Darkness Awakened will drop as part of the Rise of the Tomb Raider season pass. Previous releases include Endurance Mode and the story-driven Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, as well as outfits, weapons, expedition cards.

Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch- Release date: January 26, 2016

Baba Yaga expands the story of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Deep in the wilds of Siberia lies a forest that no man will enter, where a Soviet expedition vanished without a trace. Lara enters the Wicked Vale in search of a missing man, but she finds a nightmare that defies explanation. Is the witch, Baba Yaga, haunting the forest? Or is there more to the myth? Featuring over three hours of gameplay, Lara will face new adversaries, explore a new tomb, solve a decades old mystery, and face off against an ancient evil. Includes a new outfit, and a new bow mechanic.

Endurance Mode - Release date: December 29, 2015

Endurance Mode features an entirely new procedurally generated location to explore, Lara must scrounge, scavenge, craft and survive the harsh elements by day, as well as lethal threats from enemies, both man and beast, by night. This is her ultimate woman-versus-wild test to push the limits of how long she can survive on her own in sprawling, unforgiving landscapes. Fire takes fuel, cold kills the unprepared, food restores health, but everything must be caught, collected, or crafted. You start with nothing and must find everything. Challenge friends to your longest survival run and battle to the top of the leaderboards for the title of Ultimate Survivor.


You can get your hands on the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass now via the Xbox Marketplace, Steam, and Windows 10 Store. Cold Darkness Awakened joins the roster March 29.
