Shadow of the Tomb Raider's Second DLC is Out Now

Shadow of the Tomb Raider's Second DLC is Out Now

"Brave the storms, defeat the forces of The Pillar."

Shadow of the Tomb Raider's first DLC package released last month in November 2018, the first of seven total planned DLC installments for the game. Today on December 18, the second DLC pack for Square Enix's game has released.

The Pillar is the title of the second DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and sees Lara Croft venturing into the new challenge tomb called the "Path of Huracan." This second DLC pack also features the new Sinchi Chiqa Battle Dress outfit, which reduces incoming projectile damage from weapons, and the Oathtaker's Bow, which deals greater damage to armored enemies.

Previously, "The Forge" was the first DLC release for Shadow of the Tomb Raider in November as part of the Season Pass, and could be played either solo or in co-op. Currently, there's no confirmation on whether The Pillar can also be played with others online, or if it's a purely solo experience.

The Pillar is out now, for PC, Xbox One, and PS4 versions of Shadow of the Tomb Raider. You can purchase it either standalone for $4.99, or get it included in the full Season Pass for the game at $29.99.

If you're still playing the base version of the third entry in the rebooted Lara Croft series, you can head over to our Shadow of the Tomb Raider guides hub, or you can check out our very own Shadow of the Tomb Raider review.
