Tomb Raider Hunt

Tomb Raider Scavenger Hunt offers DLC and prizes

The folks at Square Enix launched a web-based Scavenger Hunt this week to wet the collective whistles of gamers in preparation for the new Tomb Raider jam slated for release in early March 2013.

Challenges run from now until the game’s release, and appear to be a pretty good deal to score some free DLC for the game depending on your progress. There are 5 DLC items to unlock in all, and your participation in the hunt also gives you a chance to win some real world prizes including themed consoles, an ATV, or a trip to Fiji — all in the spirit of Tomb Raider of course. The challenges themselves, thus far, have involved answering trivia questions and uploading photos (it is, after all a Scavenger Hunt).

The hunt is currently open to those that have pre-ordered the game, and based on what we’ve already seen at past Pax events, Tomb Raider is shaping up to be a interesting and exciting release. Follow the hunt online or on your mobile at: http://trscavenger.com/login

Good luck.

Hi, I’m one of the founders of Nerd Appropriate and the Rated NA podcast. I like good and bad sci-fi films and tv, pho, and the retrofuture. I am primarily an Xbox gamer, but also do some PC and Wii U gaming as well. By day, I am a research scientist, mostly in topics related to human-computer interaction and user experience. Before all this, fellow NA co-founder Matt and I played music together in various bands. I also used to make "comedy" videos for my high school morning news program before there was a place to post them online. Favorite Star Wars character? Admiral Ackbar. Best Bond era? Timothy Dalton (Craig a close second). Game of all time? Maybe System Shock 2. Thanks for being a part of this labor of nerdy love with us.
