Hello, Tomb Raider fans!

Well, now there is an update in the gaming world you all would like to hear about. Just in time for the Christmas season RISE OF THE TOMB RAIDER “BLOOD TIES” CHAPTER IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR SteamVR!

The actual press release will follow! Blood Ties is a very good and passive chapter of Rise of the Tomb Raider. It enhances and explains more about Lara’s rebooted character. Some of the background on Lady Lara Croft remains the same from the past games but there are other twists and turns that are not.

If you have played this great addition to the newest Lara Croft you will know that it essentially fleshes out her parents and, her childhood, her butler and also her uncle more. In fact, up until now, I do not recall hearing about Lara’s uncle Atlas. That was interesting. However, it would not be named “Blood Ties” if it didn’t shed some light on her family tree. So without farther ado, here is the actual press release relating to this great Tomb Raider news!

I shall be back with another site update soon!

Explore the world!!!
