Rise of the Tomb Raider Adds New Chapter with VR Support

This Steam Community announcement has word that a new chapter called Blood Ties is now available for Rise of the Tomb Raider, available to owners of the 20 Year Celebration Pack or the Season Pass for the action/adventure sequel. The news includes word that this chapter can be played in virtual reality by owners of Rift or Vive HMDs. The game is also on sale for half-off, as is its DLC, including the 20 year celebration pack and the Season Pass. Here are the details on VR support:

HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners can now experience the “Blood Ties” single-player story chapter through the eyes of Lara Croft on SteamVR. If you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through the halls of Croft Manor, VR is the ultimate way to do so. SteamVR allows you to stand in the Manor’s main hall, explore Lord Croft’s office, and discover memories long thought lost in the lower basement levels of the home of Lara’s youth. Explore Lara’s childhood home in VR and uncover a Croft family mystery that will change her life forever.

The SteamVR update is free and available now. The “Blood Ties” story chapter is included with Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 year Celebration. Owners of Rise of the Tomb Raider standard edition can purchase the standalone version of Blood Ties, which is included in the 20 Year Celebration pack DLC, or purchase the season pass.

Thanks to our friends at Nixxes for their hard work on this VR update!

Blood Ties isn't new. It came out a while ago. This announcement is just for the new VR implemention.

For a second, I thought I'd have to reinstall RotTR to play new DLC, but this is old DLC, just with added VR support.

Sure sounds neat but people are mentioning the teleporting everywhere and controls ruins the experience.

You've got to be cruel to be kind...in the right measure.
