The Nightmare is Lara’s latest DLC for Shadow of the Tomb Raider. While she goes in search of the recipe for the hallucinogenic “white breath”, the journey takes her to a spooky version of Croft Manor. The trailer looks like she is on a vision quest of some kind, so expect things to get weird with whomever she sees. White breath gives you the power to make your enemies fight each other, so it’s definitely worth finding.
The DLC includes an outfit, a new weapon, and a new challenge tomb. The Scales of Q outfit offers twice the melee resistance. The Grip of Fear ax will knock your enemies down and keep them down longer. Who doesn’t want that? Finally, the Howl of the Monkey Gods challenge tomb is available for you to solve alone or with a friend. It looks as if you will need to time your jumps to get through it. Speaking of time, you can play all the other tombs in time attack or score attack modes.
The Nightmare DLC is available now and is priced at $4.99 or you can pick up all the DLC with the season pass.
Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
