Rise of the Tomb Raider will only be coming out on Xbox consoles later this year. If you are planning on buying the sequel to the 2013 reboot of Tomb Raider on the Xbox One, we also recommend picking up the following items so that you can optimize you experience with the action-adventure game.
Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass
Square Enix has already revealed most of its downloadable content plans for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The DLC will include three major expansions, one of which is an Endurance Mode where you have to survive against extreme conditions. The other is a Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, a new explorable tomb. Last but not least, you will also get to fight against the infected predators with the Cold Darkness Awakened pack.
Along with the major expansions, Square Enix will also be providing new expedition cards, outfits and weapons over a four month period after launch. You can get all these, and save some cash in the process, via the season pass. If you are interested, you can purchase the Rise of the Tomb Raider Season Pass with this link on Amazon.
Xbox One Gaming Headsets
Rise of the Tomb Raider is three times larger when compared to the 2013 reboot in terms of explorable areas. Having a surround sound headset will not only help you be more immersed in the environments, but will also help you better detect your targets.
