View Full Version : DLC Information Thread: availability, pricings and more

16th Dec 2010, 21:45

Sadly, none of the DLC add new achievements or trophies, so if you already have 100% completion and that's all you care for, there's little for you here. The challenge packs bring small, teaser levels with ideas that were not used in the main games (no denying that some act like fillers though). They all have their own mission challenges, and while these will not earn you any new weapons, relics or artifacts, they might still prove to be quite challenging. The bottomline is: these packs were specifically tailored for the fans who just can't get enough Lara Croft. Curiously, the Challenge Packs don't offer support even for online leaderboards.

Challenge Pack 2 is the only one that's not available through all the platforms the game was released on. Despite the game getting an early release on Xbox Live through Summer of Arcade, Xbox Live users will not be able to buy this DLC due to unforeseen issues (http://forums.eidosgames.com/showthread.php?t=116839), according to Karl Stewart.

*In spite of the delayed online coop patch, each platform got one DLC for free for the first 30 days after its actual release. Xbox Live players were offered Challenge Pack 1, while Playstation Network and Steam users received Challenge Pack 2.

**Exclusively available for Xbox Live Gold members on its first week.

Here's a list of the levels included in each challenge pack as well as the requirements for meeting the mission challenges.

All The Trappings - Challenge Pack 1
Four new challenge maps filled with hordes of undead enemies and devious traps you must maneuver and exploit to survive. 'Double Crossings' is an interesting take at navigational puzzles, and 'Tooth and Nail', goes the exact opposite direction as you have to open gates while always on the move before the deadly spikes pierce your character. 'Temple Defense' is a vanilla survival challenge and 'Crushing Expectations' puts you on a trap hallway, where collapsing floors, dropping boulders and crushing walls put your dexterity to test.

Things That Go Boom - Challenge Pack 2
Four new explosive challenge maps featuring a variety of tense puzzles, deadly traps, and relentless combat encounters. 'Ill Valley' and 'Madness River' are two survival challenges. The first one sees the characters in a multi-layered arena that gets progressively covered in poison so the players must move to higher grounds if they want to survive. 'Mayan Mini-Golf' is pretty much self-explaining: you must roll a ball through a rather complicated path (spikes, poison pods etc) until you can drop it into a hole and finish the level. There are lots of physics involved in this one, and plenty of poison to keep you on your toes. Finally, in 'Blast Lifts' you have to use bombs to power launch platforms to reach higher areas. Quite inventive and there's nothing like it in the main game. [File size: 94 MB]

Hazardous Reunion - Challenge Pack 3
Four new challenge maps featuring mind-boggling puzzles, waves of intense combat action, and a fiery reunion with an old friend. 'Leglion's Lair' is a survival challenge. Its arena is rather expansive and there are plenty of trap devices to use against the hordes of enemies - at some point even Leglion himself shows up. 'Puzzle Soup' breaks the pace, offering a handful of new physics based puzzles in a row. With 'Firefighters' you're back to non-stop action in another survival challenge, in an arena with more fire traps you could ever hope for. The final challenge level, 'Lava Chompy', is pretty much the main game Chompy level on steroids and on fire. It works the same way as before, but it's entirely different - even the way you dispose of the giant monster. [File size: 101 MB]

Raziel and Kain - Character Pack

Both character packs allow you to play through the main campaign (they're not compatible with the Challenge Packs). Although weapons and gameplay properties remain the same (Kane and Raziel replacing Lara while Lynch and Kain take on Totec's role), the characters have their own voices. Some of the cutscenes are altered slightly, especially the intros and endings. It's reported that the audio is recycled from the source games, though.

Also, sadly, you can't mix and match characters - so you can't have Lara Croft and Kain go at it for instance. None of the character packs have alternate/unlockable outfits either.

Things that go boom - pack 2 is on Steam and it is for free.

When clicking on the DLC page on Steam it says:
There is no downloadable content available for this game.

16th Dec 2010, 22:48
Hey Treeble, got some info for a couple of DLCs.
All the Trappings came out on October 27th. ;)
Oh yeah, A Hazardous Reunion Challenge Pack 3 came out on 8/12/2010 and Raziel & Kain Character Pack on 15/12/2010.

That's all for XLIVE and they all cost 400 points.

17th Dec 2010, 09:52
Great idea! I see that these guys have a thing for staggering everything they release in regards to LCGoL. First the game itself, then the online co-op patch & now each & every dlc. Conkers!!!

This post is very useful!

17th Dec 2010, 11:15
the iPhone Support DLCs (see Resident evil 4) but CD release DLC for iPhone? i don't think so... btw i have the game on iPhone and its amazing!

17th Dec 2010, 12:36
Thanks for posting this Treeble, I had been incredibly confused as to the contents and availability of the different DLCs. :thumb:

22nd Dec 2010, 15:01
F**k Microsoft. I'm done with their insanely high prizes for DLC's.

22nd Dec 2010, 18:13
F**k Microsoft. I'm done with their insanely high prizes for DLC's.

I'm with you!!

Oh yeah, PS3 players, you're not *****in' anymore, you got all DLCs before XLIVE...

I can't believe that Kane & Lynch Character Pack is GOLD EXCLUSIVE FREE... Are you effing kidding me!?!?!? :mad: :mad2:

Oh yeah. Treeble, you can add Kane & Lynch Character Pack to XLIVE, it was released on 22/12/2010 and it's GOLD EXCLUSIVE FREE...

22nd Dec 2010, 22:32
Thanks for the info Angelus. Just saw the European PSN update as well, updated the first post accordingly.

It seems that what goes around does come around, eh? I find it funny that XBL got the game a month earlier than the PSN, the whole Summer of Arcade deal and stuff, and then when it comes down to the DLC, Microsoft couldn't care less. :hmm:

30th Dec 2010, 01:06
Xbox360 players!!!! Kane & Lynch Character Pack is now free for all players!! Download it soon cause we don't know how long it will be free... ;) :D

30th Dec 2010, 13:30
At last u got it too..a bit too late but ok

30th Dec 2010, 21:51
I was actually going to post a reply to the topic, but since there was that never ending (and uncalled for) argument going on, I didn't think it was worth it. Thank you for posting the heads up nevertheless... I think what Denis.TF meant is that XBL got the DLC late, not that you did. ;)

So, now it's down to one DLC for Xbox Live and then basically all DLCs on Steam. It's a bit sad to see how much of a struggle the DLC releases have been, but it seems to be slowly coming to an end.

30th Dec 2010, 22:35
Release kain & raziel on steam already :(

31st Dec 2010, 18:35
this guy angelus piccolo..duhh
i was going to reply but treeble did somehow more nicely

3rd Jan 2011, 11:45
I've got a question, will other DLCs ever be available on Steam?
It's January! Weren't we supposed to get all DLCs before Christmas?
I'd appreciate any official statement on this matter.

3rd Jan 2011, 22:15
Please please please Hana And Rain of Fear Effect Inferno pack :D

7th Jan 2011, 20:52
I've just seen that Steam has received the previously missing DLCs (http://store.steampowered.com/dlc/35130/). Only Challenge Pack 2 on XBL to go now. I'll update the first post with the level names and their challenges over the weekend. :)

Great news! Downloading now... :D

8th Jan 2011, 02:55
Yay finally :D

I wonder why challenge pack #2 is paid though.

Also, they should make a DLC pack so it´s cheaper for the ones who want the whole deal.

9th Jan 2011, 23:19
I think PS3 players can look up to us, Xbox players. They got all of the DLCs before us, and we aren't bit-chin' like them! Ha! :D ;)

10th Jan 2011, 01:25
There was that one guy though, remember? :)

10th Jan 2011, 15:57
There was that one guy though, remember? :)

I can think of at least 3... :D

12th Jan 2011, 18:12
So... what's the reason Xbox 360 doesn't get Challenge Pack #2??

12th Jan 2011, 21:10
Tell eidos..and those guys here who defending them

13th Jan 2011, 21:50
So... what's the reason Xbox 360 doesn't get Challenge Pack #2??

The reason Live hasn't got Challenge Pack 2 is because MS told Eidos to get lost after the complete mess they made of the release of GoL.

All Eidos cared about is money and not the people who without there wouldn't be any company us gamers.

All they wanted to do was release the game for Lives garbage Summer Of Arcade and in the process giving us an unfinished game and broken promises.

So by the time they got the DLC's out no one was playing the game and a very fed up MS just told them to get lost as they wern't making anything on them.

It is a pity no games magazine or site gives out prizes for the biggest screw up of the year as Eidos deserve it for this mess.

You aren't missing anything on the Challenge Packs anyway. I tried the first one and all I can say is what a mess. It was as boring as heck! It was free and I still feel ripped off. I couldn't wait to delete that garbage from my Xbox.

15th Jan 2011, 10:38
Cool theory ...

Anywya , not exactly a big deal , but four of the five DLCs on Steam's colon on the time table on the top of this thread should read 2011 instead of 2010 ...

Everyone knows it's January Sixth 2011 and not 2010 but ... yeah , like i said , not a big deal ... just a nitpick ... ... ... alright , i'm gone ...

*falls through portal back into the cave i came from* ...

15th Jan 2011, 17:52
oops. My bad. :o
Thanks for the heads up though, I'll fix that straight away!


I've also FINALLY finished putting the post together. I think it looks nice, but I'm still short of a Kane & Lynch image. Could anyone provide me one, from a cutscene preferably? Thanks in advance. :) Thanks a lot, Angelus! :)

Thanks to everyone else who helped putting this together. :thumb:

24th Feb 2011, 23:26
You're welcome, Treeble! ;)

When are they going to release Things that go boom for X360? What's the hold up?

27th Feb 2011, 22:45
You're welcome, Treeble! ;)

When are they going to release Things that go boom for X360? What's the hold up?

It's not going to be released at all. This just in from official twitter:


28th Feb 2011, 02:05
Whoa. That was certainly unexpected (I mean, yes, it should have been released a long time ago). It's bound to frustrate a number of people. :hmm:

28th Feb 2011, 13:57
It's not going to be released at all.

What!?!?!? What's the matter with them? I really can't understand them...

Ah, well. The DLCs suck so it's not a loss...
