Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics announced that "The Nightmare", the newest DLC adventure for Shadow of the Tomb Raider, is available now for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

In The Nightmare, players will journey through Lara’s past as she faces off against familiar enemies and fallen friends. In order to obtain a powerful and mysterious weapon, Lara Croft must face the music in a brand-new challenge tomb, battle foes who look like but are not like any she's ever faced, and confront the deadliest enemy of all: herself.

The Nightmare offers new customization options with the Scales of Q outfit, whose thick hide and solid bones provide twice as much resistance to melee attacks. The Grip of Fear axe possesses a primal design, optimized for climbing and fighting. When using the axe, enemies are more likely to be knocked down and stay down for longer periods. Finally, White Breath is the new skill that when fired, creates a cloud of hallucinogenic vapor on impact, poisoning enemies to fight against one another. As part of the update, several tombs from the main campaign are now playable in Score Attack and Time Attack modes.

The Nightmare is available as a free download to all Season Pass holders, or purchased as a standalone pack for $4.99.
