Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass content revealed; microtransactions expected

Details surrounding the Season Pass for Rise of the Tomb Raider has been revealed by Microsoft, although the possibility of microtransactions has also popped up.


Rise of the Tomb Raider will be receiving a Season Pass, and today, we’re learning the first details of what future downloadable content will be included.

Microsoft has listed Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Season Pass on the Xbox Store, where it says the pass will extend the single-player campaign and “allow you to compete with friends.” A total of three major releases are planned to be included in the Season Pass, which includes the following:

  • Endurance Mode: Players will be challenged to survive extreme conditions
  • Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch: Explore a new tomb that houses an ancient terror
  • Cold Darkness Awakened: Combat waves of infected predators

In addition to these three major releases, Microsoft mentions a steady stream of outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards will be available when the game is released, and we’ll receive more over four months after release.

The Expedition Cards appear to be an attempt at introducing microtransactions to Rise of the Tomb Raider. There’s an Xbox Store listing for the Silver Pack, Gold Pack, Challenge Pack, Advantage Pack, and Wild Pack, all of which offer different kinds of cards to be used across extra gameplay modes. As of now, there’s no price attached to any of these packs.
