Rise of the Tomb Raider's Baba Yaga DLC launches next week

New, 15 comments

Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, the first story-focused downloadable content for Rise of the Tomb Raider, will launch Tuesday, Jan. 26, on Xbox One, publisher Microsoft Studios announced today.

Notably, this DLC release comes just days before the scheduled release date for the Windows PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. Square Enix was unable to confirm to Polygon whether Baba Yaga will also be available on PC at the time of the port's launch.

Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch will feature protagonist Lara Croft entering a strange new tomb. Therein, she will encounter new enemies, solve puzzles and fight through some wicked hallucinations, all while battling a seemingly supernatural force. Microsoft says the add-on will provide "hours of additional gameplay."

Baba Yaga is included as part of Rise of the Tomb Raider's $29.99 season pass. The first piece of season pass content, Endurance Mode, was made available last month. In Endurance Mode, players must manage Lara's warmth and access to resources to see how long they can keep her alive in the harsh wilderness. A third major piece of DLC, titled Cold Darkness Awakened, is expected later this year.
