Forums - Gaming Discussion - HTC Vive and Oculus Rift gets Rise of the Tomb Raider, VR content

"HTC Vive and Oculus Rift owners can now experience the “Blood Ties” single-player story chapter through the eyes of Lara Croft on SteamVR. If you ever wondered what it would be like to walk through the halls of Croft Manor, VR is the ultimate way to do so. SteamVR allows you to stand in the Manor’s main hall, explore Lord Croft’s office, and discover memories long thought lost in the lower basement levels of the home of Lara’s youth. Explore Lara’s childhood home in VR and uncover a Croft family mystery that will change her life forever.

The SteamVR update is free and available now. The “Blood Ties” story chapter is included with Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 year Celebration. Owners of Rise of the Tomb Raider standard edition can purchase the standalone version of Blood Ties, which is included in the 20 Year Celebration pack DLC, or purchase the season pass."

It is nice to see more developers and publishers supporting VR.
Hopefully, this is at least as good as Croteam's Serious Sam VR titles (though I doubt it).

Square Enix has put a lock on the VR portion of the game.
You have to unlock the VR content by playing up to a point in the base game.
I have received a refund.

That’s cool.



Has been out for many months already...on PSVR. It’s just adding support for other PC headsets now.

Yeah, it's pretty cool on PSVR. I dig it.

Well now it is out properly.

I don't have a PS4.

Awkward title.

Why not "HTC Vive and Oculus Rift gets Rise of the Tomb raider 'Blood Ties' VR".

Makes it clear A) the devices getting it and B) it isn't the game, but rather an add-on for the game.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Fantastic. Strikes me quite clear.

I forgot that this ever came out for the PSVR that is why I suggested the change.

"Sorry, VR mode has not been unlocked yet."

Square Enix, what is wrong with you.

Steam refund time.

It was ok. It's kind of a short point and click adventure in first person and you only get to see Lara at the very end. Btw you don't have to go far to unlock it.
