Shadow of the Tomb Raider Free Trial and New DLC

If you haven't tried Shadow of the Tomb Raider, the third installment in the reboot trilogy, here's your chance. An extended demo, which includes full access to the game's early levels, is now available via Steam, the Microsoft Store, the PlayStation Store, and Xbox Marketplace.

If you're already playing or finished the game back in September, note that the first major downloadable content pack, The Forge, was released November 14. It includes a story mission and challenge tomb, as well as a new skill, outfit, and weapon, plus 5 achievements/trophies. The Forge also introduced co-op play, Time Attack, and Score Attack modes. The second DLC pack, The Pillar, will debut December 18. Both are available separately or as part of the Season Pass. Five more DLC drops will follow in the coming months. Stay tuned for details.

Extra Life Charity Marathon and Raffle Update

We did it! This past weekend, the Tomb Raider Community Extra Life team joined players from all over the world in a gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. We streamed for 37 hours straight—from 6 a.m. Saturday through 6 p.m. Sunday, including an extra hour at 1 a.m. due to the change from Daylight Saving Time. Together the team raised more than $6,000, and Extra Life worldwide raised more than $9 million!

Props to the team and everyone who supported our efforts this year. If you attended our streams, played for the team online or at home, donated, or helped spread the word, we thank you! You've helped make this our most successful Extra Life yet.

If you haven't donated yet, there's still time. We're accepting donations through the end of the year. If you'd like to help the kids at San Jorge Children's Hospital in Puerto Rico, you can donate through my Extra Life page. Other members of the TR crew are playing for different hospitals. Check out the team page for details and feel free to contact me with any questions.

Our annual Extra Life prize raffle is open through November 17. Anyone can enter, but donors receive bonus entries. Check out the raffle page for details, rules, and a link to the entry form. Cheers!
