As of today, Xbox One users can get their hands on additional content for Rise Of The Tomb Raider in the form of the game’s new Endurance Mode, which is available for $9.99 or as part of the larger Season Pass and adds a whole new element of competitive gameplay to Lara Croft’s latest adventure.
The Xbox store is listing the content for sale right now, and its description sets out a mightily daunting challenge for the fledgling heroine:
Alone and in the wild, Lara must scrounge, scavenge, craft and survive the harsh elements by day, as well as lethal threats from enemies, both man and beast, by night. This is her ultimate woman-versus-wild test to push the limits of how long she can survive on her own in sprawling, unforgiving landscapes. Fire takes fuel, cold kills the unprepared, food restores health, but everything must be caught, collected, or crafted. You start with nothing and must find everything.
The new Endurance Mode will also allow players to pit their best scores against those of other gamers, with leaderboards tracking the best survival runs as they are completed, and you can check out the early minutes of the new mode in the video above from YouTube user 2punkrock4you.
There are two more packs of additional content due to arrive for Rise Of The Tomb Raider in 2016, as well as the game’s PC and PS4 version releases, so there’s plenty more to look forward to for fans of the franchise in the months to come.
