Tomb Raider to Fight Baba Yaga in New DLC!

Rise_of_the_Tomb_Raider

Rise of the Tomb Raider has only been out a few weeks, and it is already getting its first downloadable content come January, 2016. I enjoyed playing Rise, so the news about an upcoming DLC is something I’m looking forward to.

The spooky trailer for the new DLC was revealed during The Game Awards. According to Xbox Wire, the title of the DLC is Rise of the Tomb Raider, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch. The story will take place in Siberia. Lara Croft will enter a forbidden forest, the Wicked Vale, in search of someone, and once there she will experience the horrors that lie within.

I read stories about Baba Yaga growing up, and seeing the cabin with chicken legs appear in the trailer made me remember how scary the witch from Slavic folklore was.

Crystal Dynamics is really going for a full-on horror feel with the new DLC, and it is quite evident from the trailer. The new content promises fans hours of gameplay along with a new tomb to explore, a mystery to solve, a bow, and a new outfit.

Make sure to read what I thought about Rise of the Tomb Raider.
