Exclusive preview: Shadow of the Tomb Raider – The Nightmare
As a special treat from Square Enix, the trailer for the third addition to The Shadow of the Tomb Raider game, “The Nightmare”, is premiering via Gadget a few hours before its general midnight release.
In the additional story, Lara faces off against familiar enemies and fallen friends. In order to obtain a powerful and mysterious weapon, she must face the music in a new challenge tomb, battle foes who look familiar, but are not like any she’s faced before, and confront the deadliest enemy of all: herself.
Click through to watch the exclusive trailer.
The downloadable content (DLC) takes place on the Croft Manor estate, where we find Lara picking her way through the voices of the past, as she confronts the demons from her past. One can expect this to be a creepy psychological horror trip, and that it will probably bring up the characters who have fallen in her formative years, to use them against her.
The Nightmare DLC launches on all platforms on January 22. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is available now on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
