Objective: find a place to take shelter
Once we are back in control of Lara simply follow the set route through the snow. After a short walk you’ll come across an old camp. Upon arrival we’ll be tasked with gathering resources to build a fire and shelter.
Objective: Gather resources to build a fire and shelter
If you turn on Lara’s Survival Instinct, the game will highlight three objects nearby – a pair of small trees and a dead deer. Move over and interact with all three of these items of interest to update your objectives. After doing so, head back to the camp for a scene.
Objective: Return to camp and build a fire
Afterwards, we’ll be at our first Base Camp. In the Base Camp menu, we can upgrade items, switch weapons, craft equipment/ammo, change Lara’s costumes and spend skill points. Once we have additional Base Camps unlocked, we can even fast travel between them – convenient! At this point however, all we’ll need to do is to enter the upgrade menu for the bow and purchase the ‘Reinforced Limbs’ upgrade and then invest a skill point in a skill of your choice – I’d recommend ‘Thick-Skinned’ in the Brawler tree or ‘Avid Learner’ in the Survivor tree, but the choice is yours.
Exit the Base Camp menu when you are ready to continue.
