Lara Croft Awakens the Zombie-Filled Cold Darkness Next Week


It seems that the Tomb Raider franchise is now becoming more and more firmly rooted in horror territory. The latest DLC, known as Cold Darkness Awakened, even has zombies for Lara to kill. That’s right; gaming’s favorite grave-robber will now have to stop the spread of a deadly affliction that turns people in mindless mutants.

It’s being released on March 29 as part of the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass, which also includes the Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch horror DLC that we reported on a few months ago, making it an essential purchase for horror gamers.

From the Press Release:
Throughout Rise of the Tomb Raider we’ve seen Lara Croft rise to a world fiercely protecting its secrets while overcoming a ruthless organization known as Trinity, prevail over the brutal conditions of Siberia in the ultimate woman-versus-wild tests of stamina in Endurance Mode, and most recently navigate through myth and reality in conquering the curse of Baba Yaga. The next and final piece of downloadable content in Rise of the Tomb Raider will have Lara encounter an army of nightmarish predators in Cold Darkness Awakened on March 29 in the Xbox Store and Windows Store.

A decommissioned Cold War research base has been breached, unleashing a deadly affliction from its Siberian slumber. As the illness seeps into the wilderness surrounding the base, Trinity soldiers transform into bloodthirsty killers who thrive on carnage. To prevent the affliction from spreading, Lara must rely on her wits, physical agility, and crafting abilities to overcome this new enemy and shut down the decommissioned base.

Cold Darkness Awakened is included in the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass, which also contains the Endurance Mode and the recently released Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch DLC. For those who haven’t joined Lara Croft on her first Tomb Raiding expedition, Rise of the Tomb Raider for Xbox One and Xbox 360 are currently featured in the Xbox Store Spring Sale from March 22-28; be sure to check out for more great deals!
