Shadow of the Tomb Raider's First DLC is Called The Forge, Releases Next Month

Solo and co-op action.

We knew Shadow of the Tomb Raider would be getting post-launch content in some form or another, but now Square Enix has revealed the first of these new pieces of content. 'The Forge' is the first of seven planned DLC packs, and will be out for PC, PS4, and Xbox One on November 13.

"In her DLC debut, Lara must brave the lava-flooded Forge of the fallen gods to uncover the secrets of Kuwaq Yaku," the announcement from the Tomb Raider website reveals. The Forge is a brand new Challenge Tomb, which can be played either solo or co-op, and will reward those who are successful with some exclusive gear, including a new outfit.

While the Season Pass for Shadow of the Tomb Raider costs $29.99, The Forge will be available to purchase standalone for $4.99.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider had generally mixed reviews when it released last month. In our own Shadow of the Tomb Raider review, we noted how "combat falls apart with the introduction of guns", and "with every reflective step forward, there are two steps back."

Hirun Cryer is by far the most juvenile member of USgamer. He's so juvenile, that this is his first full-time job in the industry, unlike literally every other person featured on this page. He's written for The Guardian, Paste Magazine, and Kotaku, and he likes waking up when the sun rises and roaming the nearby woods with the bears and the wolves.
