Rise of the Tomb Raider is now available for Xbox One and Xbox 360 – and when it launched, we announced Crystal Dynamics, Twitch and Xbox added two new interactive features enabled when the game is streamed via the Twitch application on Xbox One. If you want to see how the feature works first hand, I’ll be streaming the game on Twitch and showing off the feature.
The stream is scheduled for Monday, 23 November at 3p ET / 12p PT and will be streamed live on my Twitch channel (or watch it below once it goes live). I will be joined by Laura (lollip0p), who you may recognize as one of my co-hosts from the MNR podcast.
Watch the stream for a chance to win a code for Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Here are the features we’ll be showing off.
Rise of the Tomb Raider – Twitch Interactive Features
* Gamers who stream Rise of the Tomb Raider in Expedition Mode via the Twitch application on Xbox One will have the option to let viewers impact gameplay at various points by choosing between two Expedition Cards. Once viewers make their choices and totals are tallied, whichever card receives the most votes is activated for a period of five minutes, thereby mixing up the experience and making things either more challenging, easier, or just unpredictably fun.
* Gamers who tune in to watch Rise of the Tomb Raider being played via the Twitch application on Xbox One will be rewarded with gifts for viewing someone complete a special event in the single-player game. Viewer gifts of in-game credits are handed out when the player completes a side mission, challenge tomb, crypt, and other specific achievements.
Purchase Rise of the Tomb Raider for Xbox One and Xbox 360 from the Xbox Game Store.
In addition to the live stream, I also have an Xbox One Rise of the Tomb Raider Collector’s Edition to give away.
The collector’s edition is packed with valuable memorabilia, including a 12 inch tall statue of Lara Croft that depicts her search for answers on her first tomb raiding expedition, a model of the jade necklace that was Lara’s first archaeological discovery, and a collectible steel book case.

Simple. All you have to do is leave a comment below to this post answering the following question (do not post it on Twitter that will not count):
