Shadow of the Tomb Raider DLC The Forge arrives


The Forge – the first of seven slabs of downloadable content for Shadow of the Tomb Raider – is now available to purchase.

The Forge is a free download for anyone who purchased Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s £24.99 Season Pass, or it can be purchased separately. Square Enix describes it thus: “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.”

Square Enix adds: “If you own Shadow of the Tomb Raider and you purchase the DLC content, you can invite a friend who also owns Shadow of the Tomb Raider to join your play-session for co-op tomb raiding. Additionally, two tombs from the main game, “Court of Death” and “Gate of Xibalba,” will be playable in Score Attack and Time Attack. “Court of Death” will be playable in those modes on Nov 13, and “Gate of Xibalba” will be playable on Nov 27.”

The Forge is the first instalment of a monthly programme of seven items of DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. The next instalment, entitled The Pillar, will arrive on an as yet unspecified date in December. For more information, keep an eye on the Shadow of the Tomb Raider website.
