The first content addition of the DLC for Rise of the Tomb Raider launched last week. This DLC has been titled Endurance Mode and highlights the idea of Woman vs Wild that Rise of the Tomb Raider’s ad campaign did its best to convey.

This DLC adds a whole new survival element to the game having you use all of the elements of your surroundings to last as long as possible and rise to the top of the leader boards.  You will start this game mode with nothing but it is up to you to gather supplies.

Fire takes fuel, cold kills the unprepared, food restores health, but everything must be caught, collected, or crafted.

It wont just be the elements that you need to fight against in this DLC either because there will also be other human and animal opponents that will attack.

You can purchase Endurance Mode as a single piece of DLC right now for $9.99, or you can purchase the Season Pass for $29.99. At the moment as well as Endurance Mode the Season Pass also includes two cosmetic packs including outfits and weapon skins. In 2016 there will also be added story DLC in the form of Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, and you will fight infected warriors in Cold Darkness.

Quick Take

Having played Rise of the Tomb Raider to almost 100% completion it’s great to see that the DLC is making me play in a way I haven’t had to before. I’m looking forward to trying to see how long I can last as I have to monitor my status closely. It doesn’t take too long in the game to get to a point where you feel powerful, to have that taken will take some time to get used to.

Are you looking forward to playing the Endurance Mode DLC? Have you already played Rise of the Tomb Raider or are you waiting for it to release on the platform of your choice?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
