Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s The Pillar DLC dated to December 18

The next item of downloadable content for Shadow of the Tomb Raider – The Pillar – will be released on December 18.

The second item of DLC for Lara’s latest adventure – out of a total of seven monthly drops, each of which brings a new Challenge Tomb with an extra narrative element – The Pillar remains a tad mysterious. Square Enix describes it thus: “Brave the storm. Venture into the Path of the Huracan on December 18th to discover the truth behind the legend of the Maya apocalypse. Unlock The Pillar with the Season Pass.”

The above behind-the-scenes video at least gives some insight into the making of Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s DLC. As the company says, you will need to purchase a Season Pass for the game to get all the DLC (it is not possible to buy individual items of Shadow of the Tomb Raider’s DLC).
