Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have released the third Rise of The Tomb Raider DLC add-on titled Cold Darkness Awakened for PC via Steam and The Windows Store for $9.99 and for Xbox One and Xbox 360. Owners of the Season Pass or those who have downloaded the additional content separately will be able to continue Lara’s Journey.
Additionally, the publisher and developer are celebrating 20 years of Lara Croft beginning with festivities for this major milestone at PAX East 2016 and have special activities and events planned throughout 2016.
“Since its introduction, Tomb Raider has held a significant place in video game history, and further cements that with this milestone,” said Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “We look forward to celebrating with fans, and honoring the iconic Lara Croft with special events, retrospectives, giveaways and other surprises throughout this year of Tomb Raider.”
First making her debut in 1996 with the original Tomb Raider from Core Design, Lara Croft is a powerful force within the gaming industry and has made an indelible mark on virtually every facet of entertainment.
With over 30 video game titles released and hundreds of awards, Lara Croft has been a cultural icon for 20 years on gaming screens and even on Hollywood’s silver screens. Lara has explored the Mediterranean, Adriatic, and Andaman Seas, ventured to Antarctica and the Arctic Circle, and rediscovered Atlantis and the lost island of Yamatai.
“Tomb Raider has become a cultural phenomenon over the last 20 years, selling millions of copies worldwide, sparking one of the most successful video game film adaptations in history, and inspiring our amazing fans of all ages,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “It’s incredible to be part of this legend and to see how much the series has evolved over time, and think about what’s yet to come. Here’s to 20 more years of adventure together.”
As part of the 20-year celebration, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have partnered with GameChanger Charity to provide a free digital copy of Tomb Raider (2013 re-imagined version) for every donation made to the charity of at least $1.
Eligible contributors who donate at least $20 will be entered into a drawing where prizes include a special Crystal Dynamics swag bag including a collector’s edition of Rise of The Tomb Raider, along with special items related to the series and its famed globetrotting explorer.
