New Shadow of the Tomb Raider Patch Released for PC/PS4/XO; Adds Support for The Forge DLC & Matchmaking
A new Shadow of the Tomb Raider patch has been rolled out for all platforms which adds support for the Forge DLC and the new matchmaking gameplay functionally alongside various improvements.
PC patch #6 updates the game version on PC to build 126.96.36.199. For console owners, the patch updates the game to version 1.08. The Forge DLC is the first of seven new DLC adventures for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and allows Lara to uncover the secrets of Kuwaq Yaku.
Throughout her journey, Lara will uncover details about a friend’s ancient legacy, and overcome a danger long thought to be lost in flame. “The Forge” delivers a brand-new challenge tomb, playable in both solo and co-op. Players who complete the challenge tomb will be rewarded with the Grenadier skill, Brocken outfit, and Umbrage 3-80 weapon.
A completely new adventure, “The Forge” is the first of seven monthly DLC adventures available through the Season Pass, providing players with an abundance of new content, challenge tombs, co-op experiences, weapons and outfits, gameplay modes, and new narrative side missions.
If you own Shadow of the Tomb Raider and you purchase the DLC content, you can invite a friend who also owns Shadow of the Tomb Raider to join your play session for co-op tomb raiding. Players can look forward to the second DLC release, “The Pillar,” arriving this December.
Additionally, two tombs from the main game, “Court of Death” and “Gate of Xibalba,” will be playable in Score Attack and Time Attack. “Court of Death” will be playable in those modes on Nov. 13, and “Gate of Xibalba” will be playable on Nov. 27.
