No idea, but here's what I found out after doing some search.

IGN

Quote:
The Tomb of the Lost Adventurer is an optional tomb available to those who first pre-ordered Tomb Raider at Electronics Boutique or GameStop. Once the 95.1 MB DLC is installed on your system, you will have the option to enter this tomb in the Coastal Forest after Lara retrieves the Makeshift Bow and Pry Axe. Having the Firestriker, Shotgun, and Grenade Launcher will allow Lara to access more salvage and supply containers as well.


Pre-Order Offers

Looks like a day one DLC

L4L maybe all that TV advertising helped increase sales!

Off topic: Well, Square Enix reported a slightly less revenue from sales. So the President is stepping down.

Link

On topic: There are rumors about a new Tomb Raider game being planned.

Here

And anyone who is expecting more single player DLC content. There won't be any for the time being (being focused on the multi player).

Yes, I saw those and thought it was a good example of how statistics/numbers can be interpreted. wave

I prefer single player too. That's what adventure/action gaming is all about for me!

Yes, I was very disappointed to learn that. The first three TR games all came with Gold versions with extra content about six months after release, in a sort-of pre-DLC-era DLC. I wish Crystal Dynamics would do that too, though given the way the story of TR 2013 ended, that's a bit trickier to imagine.

The other way they could add Single Player DLC for TR 2013 would be to insert more and more elaborate tombs into the existing game, giving another reason to replay the existing story.

But I'm not holding my breath. frown

They were quick to roll out a whole selection of "micro-transactions," however, to milk every last cent out of the game. In much the same fashion as Dead Space 3 (where one could purchase resources with real-world money rather than scavenge for them in-game - way to kill the horror, guys!), impatient players may simply buy skills and weapons as $0.99 downloads. Like all this tacked-on co-op and multiplayer business, it's a becoming a disturbing trend in modern gaming. Easily enough ignored for now, but give 'em an inch...

(Of course, in the very same post, I must reluctantly confess to shelling out a buck for the Aviatrix skin, because, well...badass bomber jacket Lara. Who could resist that? I regret nothing. :P)

On the topic of profits, it's frankly a bit mind-boggling that three million sales in as about as many weeks was deemed "ineffective" by Square - especially considering that this doesn't include digital copies, which is looking more and more like the future of distribution. Not to mention the aforementioned record-breaking first week sales.

But all this is secondary to the game itself, which is easily my favorite Tomb Raider (then again, I've only played a few). My first playthrough's save is currently stuck at 99% (I'm literally one pesky mine away from a perfect completion score at this point), and I'm usually not the type to seek out every collectible and side quest in a game. Most of my gameplay quibbles are minor ones, and already covered in this thread (QTEs are the bane of gaming, and, really, the game should probably be called Room Raider, with the actual tombs brief as they are rare).

Micro-transactions do seem to be the wave of the future. wave

And yet. That one, pesky, mine...

By now, I'd settle for an accidental detonation. (Sorry, Lara.) grin

Re. the last mine:
Click to reveal..
One of the mines is surprisingly far out to sea!
... I got to 100% in the end, on Hard mode too. smile (not that Hard is much Harder that Normal anyway)

Hmm. If that's the one I immediately thought of...
Click to reveal..
...floating out beside one of the wrecked ships near the survivors' camp, that you board to get the block and tackle...

...then I've already got it! Thanks, though. I almost didn't click; it'd be a shame to get this far only to have to resort to a walkthrough for the last one friggin' percent. I'm sure I've walked/waded by it many times, too, wherever it is. It's funny, that I ended up having less trouble with, say, the dreamcatchers and sun emblems, and they were much smaller. I'll find it eventually; truth be told, it's sorta on the back burner while I replay the story, anyway. wink

Now that earns a "WOW!" and then some. thumbsup
