Endurance Mode and New Downloadable Content
The new DLC comes just days after Endurace Mode was released. The upcoming content won’t be the only release this year, there is a second DLC scheduled for the last months of 2016.
Rise of the Tomb Raider made its debut on November for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The title did not sell well during the first few days but has now sold over a million copies. The PC version will arrive in eight days and the PS4 version will be out later this year.
Content Arriving Early
The title has been nominated for many awards and has caught the attention of gamers with the new mode and great story. Rise of the Tomb Raider takes place after the reboot released two years ago, this one puts Lara on a new setting with new enemies and puzzles.
The content added at the end of last year makes the game more realistic. The Endurance mode not only has you fighting enemies, but it also makes you look for food and watch how cold the weather is getting. If Lara does not eat or stay warm, the game is over. The mode costs $10.
The upcoming DLC is a great addition to a game that is keeping fans busy with all the updates. You have the story, Endurance mode, and all the exploring you have to do to unlock everything.
