Rise of the Tomb Raider - DLC

Updated: 11/26/16()

This page details all available DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider. In addition to individual packs, items marked with an asterisk (*) are included in the Season Pass. The 20 Year Celebration Edition includes all DLC.

If you purchased the Season Pass on Xbox One and are having difficulty accessing content, try this: Navigate to the Games Store on your console. Search for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Select the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass. Then select Manage. The next screen will show installed content and items ready to install. Select "Ready To Install" and follow the on-screen prompts. Once the DLC is actually installed, you should be able to access it in-game.

In the PC version, open your Steam Library, right-click Rise of the Tomb Raider, choose Properties from the pop-up menu, and then click the DLC tab. You can then check or un-check the DLC you would like to install/uninstall. Next time you run the game, it should download and install the necessary files.

If there's a trick to installing PS4 content, I hope someone will let me know, since I don't own that system.

LARA'S OUTFITS are covered in more detail on the separate Outfits page. Weapons are covered on (you guessed it!) the Weapons page.



Endurance Mode

Endurance Mode*

This DLC adds a new Expedition mode centered on survival. In addition to countless hours of gameplay—thanks to procedurally generated levels and numerous challenges—Endurance Mode also includes the Pioneer outfit, Vintage Pickaxe (climbing axe skin), Endurance Card Pack (20 permanent foil cards), plus a separate set of achievements/trophies.

Synopsis: Alone in the wild, Lara must scrounge, scavenge, craft, and survive the harsh elements, as well as lethal threats from enemies, both man and beast. 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 the longest survival run and battle to the top of the leaderboards for the title of Ultimate Survivor.

Originally released December 29, 2015. Follow this link for JHNMCHLTNR's Endurance Mode walkthrough.

Co-Op Endurance Mode will be introduced in conjunction with the launch of the 20 Year Celebration edition for PS4 October 11, 2016. It will also be included as part of the Season Pass for Xbox One and PC.



Baba Yaga Temple of the Witch

Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch*

This story-based DLC adds several hours of gameplay. It also includes the Wraithskin outfit and Dreamstinger bow, the Baba Yaga Card Pack (4 permanent foil cards), plus achievements/trophies.

Synopsis: 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?

You can play this DLC any time after completing the Gulag section of Soviet Installation in the main story. At that point, make your way to the old sawmill near the logging camp. Activate Survival Instinct and you'll see a pink marker with a cow's skull marking the start of the Baba Yaga mission. (screenshot)

Originally released January 26, 2016. Here's my Baba Yaga walkthrough.



Cold Darkness Awakened

Cold Darkness Awakened*

This DLC is more action-oriented but does include some story and puzzle elements. It is accessed through the Expeditions section of the main menu. The Ushanka outfit, Voidhammer shotgun, and Cold Darkness Card pack (15 permanent foil cards) are unlocked gradually as you beat challenges. There's also a separate set of achievements/trophies.

Synopsis: 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. 

Originally released March 29, 2016. Follow this link for Treeble's Cold Darkness walkthrough.



Blood Ties and Lara's Nightmrare

This pack is not available on Xbox 360. It is actually multiple content packs in one:

This content was released October 11, 2016. It is included along with all the other DLC in the 20 Year Celebration edition. It is also part of the Season Pass for PC and Xbox One, and it can be purchased separately as the 20 Year Celebration DLC pack on Steam or Xbox LIVE.
