Final Rise of the Tomb Raider DLC detailed

Horror inspired Cold Darkness Awakened story DLC set to arrive March 29th.

The latest downloadable content pack for Rise of the Tomb Raider has been revealed by Microsoft, and is set to release March 29th.

Cold Darkness Awakened is a horror inspired adventure, set in a decommissioned Cold War base. Lara will once again face the villainous group known as Trinity, but this time with a twist -- a Siberian illness is afoot, turning the soldiers into bloodthirsty killers. 

Xbox Wire revealed the content pack release date, providing a brief synopsis alongside it.

A decommissioned Cold War research base has been breached, unleashing a deadly affliction from its Siberian slumber. As the illness seeps into the wilderness surrounding the base, Trinity soldiers transform into bloodthirsty killers who thrive on carnage. To prevent the affliction from spreading, Lara must rely on her wits, physical agility, and crafting abilities to overcome this new enemy and shut down the decommissioned base.

Cold Darkness Awakened will be final downloadable content pack for Rise of the Tomb Raider, following the releases of the Yaga Baba: The Temple of the Witch and Endurance Mode DLC packs. 

Rise of the Tomb Raider released November 2015 exclusively on Xbox consoles to critical acclaim. A desktop version soon followed in January, with a PlayStation 4 release planned for later this year. GameSkinny gave the title a nine out of ten, calling it "essential"
