Lightning Returns getting Tomb Raider-themed costume DLC.

#1 Posted by Hailinel (25205 posts) -


As launch day DLC (no doubt to help promote the new edition of Tomb Raider), Lightning is getting a Tomb Raider-themed costume and gear, including a survivor's axe weapon, a riot shield, and a lot of dirt on her everything. (There is no word on whether Lightning's injuries and deaths become ludicrously graphic while wearing this outfit.)

That axe is pretty hilarious. Is there an Adam Jensen outfit already?

You mean that game that SE said was a failure despite selling 3 million copies or whatever it was at launch (I know they actually ended up making their money back eventually on the game, but still funny they said it was a failure).

Prices for DLC packs, $3.99 a pop

Additional downloadable content (DLC), including a Tomb Raider “Lara Croft” costume and Yuna’s “Sphere Hunter” costume from FFX-2 provide more ways for players to extend their experience. Both DLC packs will be available for $3.99. Additionally, original Japanese Voice-Overs are available from today until February 25th as a free download. Following this two-week period, the Japanese Voice-Over Pack will be available for $3.99.

@demoskinos: If there was a Tifa outfit, that would have been awesome. Though I'm not sure what such a costume's weapon and shield would be.
