Rise of the Tomb Raider Baba Yaga expansion coming next week

Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch DLC is coming to Xbox One next week, Microsoft has confirmed.

The first story expansion for Crystal Dynamic’s Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to Xbox One on January 26.

Baba Yaga: Temple of the Witch will feature “hours” of new gameplay, as Lara encounters new enemies and explores a mysterious new tomb.

“This adventure expands the story of the main campaign with Lara facing deadly new adversaries, exploring a new puzzle-filled tomb, and solving a decades old mystery, all culminating in a showdown with an ancient and mythic evil. Includes a new outfit, and a new bow.” the content description reads.

The expansion will only be available for Xbox One at first, as no mention has been made of a Xbox 360 release (via Polygon)

It is also unclear whether the content will be made available for the PC version either, which is set to launch on January 26.

Temple of the Witch will be playable as part of the £19.99 season pass, however, the price of the individual expansion is yet to be confirmed.

Another add-on known as Cold Darkness Awakened will be out later this year, although specific details are yet to be revealed.

Microsoft and Square have said they are “very happy” with Rise of the Tomb Raider, which has gone on to sell over a million copies on Xbox One alone.

Tomb Raider director Brian Horton has since left Crystal Dynamics for Infinity Ward, so we may see some small changes in Lara’s next adventure.
