They're not zombies, but they totally are

Rise of the Tomb Raider's third and final add-on, Cold Darkness Awakened, will be released March 29 on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, publishers Microsoft Studios and Square Enix announced today.

The downloadable content introduces a new mode in which Lara Croft heads to an old Cold War-era research facility and finds that a breach has allowed a contagious illness to escape into the surrounding area. The deadly disease turns Trinity soldiers into "bloodthirsty killers who thrive on carnage" — aka zombies — and Lara has to use every tool at her disposal to survive as she attempts to re-seal the base.

Cold Darkness Awakened is the last piece of Rise of the Tomb Raider's $29.99 season pass. Players who don't own the season pass will be able to buy the DLC pack on its own for $9.99 on Steam, the Xbox Live Marketplace (Xbox 360), the Xbox Games Store (Xbox One) and the Windows Store.

For more on Cold Darkness Awakened and the rest of the season pass, check out the trailer above. Rise of the Tomb Raider is scheduled to be released this holiday season on PlayStation 4.
