'Rise of the Tomb Raider' Latest News & Update: 100,000 Game Credits Promo Next Week for Season Pass Owners
Gamers rooting for "Rise of the Tomb Raider" are in for plenty of new contents for free once the 20th year anniversary caravan hits the road in Oct 11. The game was confined with Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows 10 so other platforms are sure to drool over these freebies.
There are two adventure packs available for "Rise of the Tomb Raider" season pass owners. "Blood Ties" is a nostalgic quest for Lara Croft where she needs to revisit her childhood to verify her ascendancy to Croft Manor. Then another is "Lara's Nightmare" where the heroine needs to ward off attacks from hordes of flesh-hungry zombies. These storylines are both playable via co-op mode or single-player.
According to official Xbox site, "Rise of the Tomb Raider" Lara can either raid the frozen Siberian landscape alone if the gamer is hardcore survivalist. However, co-op gameplay is available for those who prefer the easier path. If these challenges are still hard to beat, Xbox is offering yet another bonus. Gamers who will play within a week after Oct 11 can qualify for a cut in 100,000 game credits promo.
For those who ask how this credit works, it can be used to purchase Expedition Card Packs. These cards are game modifiers which can be as useless as simple new skins or essential as improved character. Beware though because some cards can amplify game difficulty. At any rate, "Rise of the Tomb Raider" Expedition Card aims to add new perspective and challenges in the game, Windows Able said.
Meanwhile, Xbox clears that "Rise of the Tomb Raider" promo is non-exclusive to US market. In fact, every country where the game was released are qualified to join as long as they can log on to the game server. It is noteworthy to point that Expedition Cards can be purchased by real currency as well. So to speak, developer Square Enix will be giving away what could be quantified as cold cash through this promo.
