Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Baba Yaga DLC has received a release date. Publisher Microsoft announced that Tomb Raider’s first story DLC will release on January 26, 2016.

Interestingly, the long-awaited PC release for Rise of the Tomb Raider is scheduled for a release 2 days later, on January 28. It’s uncertain whether the Baba Yaga DLC will release for PC on January 28 as well.

Baba Yaga DLC debuted during The Game Awards 2015

Baba Yaga: The Story of the Witch debuted during the Game-Awards pre-show last year. Check out the trailer down below:

Deep in the wilds of Siberia, there is a forbidden forest that no man will enter, where a Soviet expedition vanished without a trace. Lara enters the Wicked Vale in search of a missing man, but what she finds is a nightmare that she cannot explain. Is the witch, Baba Yaga, truly haunting the forbidden forest? Or is there more to the legend?

Featuring hours of gameplay and a new outfit and bow, Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch expands the story of the main campaign with Lara facing deadly new adversaries, exploring a new puzzle-filled tomb, and solving a decades old mystery, all culminating in a showdown with an ancient and mythic evil.

Baba Yaga: The Story of the Witch is included as part of Rise of the Tomb Raider's season pass.

Rise of the Tomb Raider was released back in November for the Xbox One as a time-exclusive. Due to a exclusive deal with Square Enix, the PC version will release this month, while PS4 owners will have to wait until the 4th quarter of 2016. Since its release back in November, Rise of the Tomb Raider sold over 1 million copies.

A few days ago we reported that the game’s senior art director, Brian Horton, had left Crystal Dynamics to join Call of Duty developer, Infinity Ward.
