A few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be getting some new DLC later this year, including a new story-based pack set within the mysterious Croft Manor. Lara’s family home will be free to explore and investigate in the “Blood Ties” pack, though there will also be plenty of dangers lurking in the shadows for the Tomb Raider to face off against. Included in this pack is an alternate mode, “Lara’s Nightmare,” in which Lara must defend the manor from zombie hordes. A new trailer was released this morning to show off both of these modes, so check it out above!
“Players were able to glimpse Lara’s manor during a cinematic in the main campaign, but will now be able to fully explore Lara’s childhood home as part of the new “Blood Ties” DLC, which features over an hour of new story. In it, Lara must reclaim her legacy and prove that she is the rightful heir in the wake of her father’s death. “Blood Ties” also includes “Lara’s Nightmare” mode in which hordes of the undead overrun her childhood home. Test your zombie-killing skills in this replayable mode, featuring a haunted Croft Manor filled with new challenges as you fight to rid the Manor of an evil presence.”
