While the previous DLC for Shadow of The Tomb Raider had Lara battling her past and revisiting the Croft Manor, that’s old news. Out with the old and in with yet another DLC for us to tackle. It’s time for “The Serpent’s Heart” DLC, which is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
In this new DLC, Lara will face a new challenge; the mighty Slayer’s Gauntlet. In order to say the lives of several loyal rebels, Lara must brave a trip to an enemy fortress and perform a prison break. Of course, that’s not going to be easy as the evil Kukulkan cultists will be laying in wait. After all that, Lara must complete the Slayer’s Gauntlet and navigate roaring rapids in order to receive the power of the serpent god.
Sounds like our adventuring loving pal is going to have her hands full this time.
Those who complete the challenge tomb will be rewarded with the Divine Bounty skill, which causes fallen foes to yield more gold coins when looted. “The Serpent’s Heart” also features the Dragon Scales outfit, which reduces fire damage, prevents stumbling, and accelerates health regeneration. Finally, players will receive The Serpent Lash bow, which deals out extra fire damage.
As part of the update, tombs from the main campaign, “Judge’s Gaze,” “Underworld Gate,” “Howling Caves”, “Path of Battle,” “Temple of the Sun,” “San Cordoba,” “Ancient Aqueduct,” and “Thirsty Gods” are all now playable in Score Attack and Time Attack modes.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The Season Pass is available for $29.99 or “The Serpent’s Heart” can be purchased as a standalone for $4.99.
