What is Expedition Mode?

While Rise of the Tomb Raider has dropped the long-forgotten multiplayer mode that was included in the last game, it's found a much more welcome source of replay value in expedition mode. This new single-player option allows you to replay chapters, jump into hub areas with new objectives or just go for a classic score chase. Each of these challenges can be modified in interesting ways.

As you progress through the story, you'll earn points that can be spent to purchase card packs. Cards can have gear or upgrades for Lara, or they can have other modifiers — tweaks that make enemies harder to take down or turn Lara into an unstoppable killing machine. Each modifier can have a major impact on how any one run through expedition mode plays out, and Square Enix has promised to continue introducing new cards through the game's DLC season pass.

Notably, packs of cards can also be purchased with real money. However, just playing expedition mode earns more points with which you can purchase more packs, so it doesn't seem like people will be forced to spend real money at any point.
