The Xbox Store has revealed details on "Rise of the Tomb Raider's" season pass, along with microstransactions.
The Season Pass for Rise of the Tomb Raider includes a range of content that will extend your single-player campaign, and also allow you to compete with friends. Three major releases will challenge you to survive the extreme conditions of Endurance Mode, explore a new tomb that houses an ancient terror in Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, and combat waves of infected predators in Cold Darkness Awakened. In addition, a steady stream of outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards beginning on Day 1 and continuing over four months will keep you customizing, expanding, and challenging your friends to new adventures.
In addition to the season pass, there is a deluxe edition of the game that includes the season pass and the Remnant Resistance Pre-Order pack. It seems the only way to get this pack is to pre-order the deluxe edition of the game, though it most likely can be bought after the game releases.
Includes the "Remnant" outfit which gives Lara a chance to bandage without using any resources, the "Matte Ebony" Handgun skin, and the rare "Bullet Resistance" foil card, which gives Lara extra damage resistance to gunfire.
Lastly, alongside the season pass and pre-order bonus for the deluxe version, there are microtransactions in the form of card packs. These range from restrictions or benefits for Lara Croft based on what cards you get, with at least one rare card in each pack.
As it stands, all of this content will be available on day-one once "Rise of the Tomb Raider" releases first on Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Judging how "Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition" released following the 2013 release of "Tomb Raider," it seems likely that the PC and PlayStation 4 versions releasing next year may come with the DLC in one package.
