Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Blood Ties chapter now playable in SteamVR

Square Enix has announced that the DLC ‘Blood Ties’ chapter for Rise of the Tomb Raider is now fully playable in SteamVR for those who have a compatible VR headset.

According to a press release from Square Enix, those who own either an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift VR unit and who own Rise of the Tomb Raider’s Steam PC version along with its $4.99 20th Anniversary Celebration Pack can now experience the Blood Ties story chapter entirely in VR. The Blood Ties chapter is an optional non-combat story experience which involves protagonist Lara Croft exploring her family’s manor so that she can find proof of her status as the manor’s rightful heir after her uncle shows up to contest ownership.

The 20th Anniversary Celebration Pack is also included in Rise of the Tomb Raider’s season pass, so those who sprung for the full experience and who have a VR headset can now experience Blood Ties in an all new way.
