Rise of the Tomb Raider was launched yesterday on Xbox One and it came with two interesting features. First “let the hunger games begin”. Gamers who broadcast their Rise of the Tomb Raider gameplay on Twitch, while in expedition mode, can expect interference from their viewers. All Twitch users on any platform have the ability of controlling the game by choosing between expedition cards through votes, cards that will make the game either easier or more challenging.
Prepare to be the mastermind behind making Tomb Raider more unpredictable for your favorite Twitch broadcaster. Second, for those who view streams via the Xbox One Twitch app will now get rewarded from simply watching streams. Every Xbox One Twitch viewer will receive a 30-day redeemable gift card consisting in 500 in-game credits. The gift card will be received by the Twitch app user when the streamer does certain things in Rise of the Tomb Raider campaign.
The broadcaster has to take side missions or challenges, challenge Tombs or earn specific achievements. If you are a Xbox One viewer you should probably tell or control the streamer to do these specific things so you can earn your gift. Also the broadcast of the Rise of the Tomb Raider should be made through the Xbox One Twitch app for you to actually consider receiving the credit.
By all means the new features introduced with the launch of Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox One are either for Xbox One users or for everyone. To be clear gift cards are only for Xbox One viewers that watch a stream made through the Xbox One Twitch app while the ability to interact with the Expedition mode will be available to any Twitch user.
