Croft Manor in RotTR

The Croft Manor in Rise of the Tomb Raider was released with the anniversary version of the game called Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration on 11 October 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The manor is also part of the Season Pass or can be bought separately via the corresponding online stores as a DLC, for those who do not own the 20 Year Celebration.


According to the address on several letters[1][2] Lara Croft can find in the Blood Ties DLC the Manor is located at 142 Abbingdon Road, Guildford, Surrey, England, AL9 5NQ. This address is of course fictional, there is no such road in Guildford. Also note that the real town of Abingdon (near Oxford) is written with only on b. The zip code on the letters, though, is that of Hatfield House, the Manor that stood in for the house of Lara Croft in the Movies.


This Manor is similar to the Croft Manor featured in the first three Crystal Dynamics Tomb Raider Games (Legend, Anniversary, and Underworld), as can be seen on of the screen shots released in July and August 2016.


The following rooms can be visited in the Manor; many doors are blocked by debris or abandoned furniture and cannot be opened.


Blood Ties

Blood Ties is a story chapter that sees Lara return to Croft Manor to find her claim on it disputed by a close relative, her uncle on her mother's side, Atlas de Mornay. She has to prove her rightful ownership by exploring the manor, which will lead to confronting her past and overcome the trauma of her father's sudden death.

This DLC adds about one hour of gameplay to the main game.

Virtual Reality Mode

Exploring the manor can be experienced in either the standard third person perspective or in the new Virtual Reality Mode, which had been published exclusively for the PS4 at first. About one and a half year later (Dec. '17) this mode has been ported to the Steam version of the DLC and can now be played using an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive Virtual Reality Headset in conjunction with a PC.

Blood Ties: Lara’s Nightmare

Similar to Cold Darkness Awakened, in Blood Ties: Lara's Nightmare Lara has to face hordes of the undead that threaten to overrun the manor.
