Nobody knows what is up with Tomb Raider‘s eighth DLC but we’re going to attempt to crack it down for you. Back in April, players of the most recent Tomb Raider noticed something surprising. An in-game menu that was being used to list new downloadable tomb levels suddenly listed the eighth slot. The game’s publisher had only ever promised seven. The final one went live on April 23. Since then, that eighth spot has remained a mystery, and the people behind Shadow of the Tomb Raider won’t say anything about it. If you’re wondering what has happened to it, join the gang and read on ahead.
