ShackStream: Emerging from the shadows

Shadow of the Tomb Raider has gotten some new DLC. The Shack Stream Team shines a spotlight on the latest adventure with Lara Croft.


After the series was revitalized by 2013’s Tomb Raider, the adventures of Lara Croft are a big deal in the world of entertainment. A live-action movie last year showed that the movie studios had faith in the property and a pair of sequels to the 2013 outing were received with strong fanfare.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider differs from the previous two entries as it was not developed by Crystal Dynamics, but rather Eidos Montreal. Like the other games, it did get a great PC port from developer Nixxes, following in the footsteps of its predecessors by being a graphical showcase for the platform. Now that we are a few months removed from the release of the game, new DLC adventures for Lara Croft are arriving.

On today’s ShackStream, we fire up the old computer for some extracurricular cave spelunking deep in the jungles of wherever. If you have what it takes to be a real tomb explorer, join us at 4:45 PM EST (1:45 PM PST) on the Official Shacknews Twitch Channel.
