Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Announced For PS4 And Xbox One
The VGX Awards brought quite a few new gaming announcements, including the confirmation of a new Tomb Raider game, dubbed the ‘Definitive Edition’. Well, I say new. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a re-release of Crystal Dynamic’s Tomb Raider and sees the game getting an overhaul for next generation consoles. As well as tweaked and improved graphics, the game is set to feature a slight remodelling of Lara’s face to make her look more like her current voice-actress and mo cap actor, Camilla Luddington. It’s also set to feature the previously-PC-only next-gen hair, made possible thanks to AMD’s TressFX technology.
As well as a lovely re-release of the game, you’ll also be getting the pre-order bonus tomb ‘The Tomb Of The Lost Adventurer’, plus a bunch of the game’s multiplayer add-ons (which totals eight DLC maps, six weapons and four characters). Add on six extra Lara outfits, plus digital copies of the Dark Horse comic Tomb Raider: The Beginning, Brady Games’ art book Tomb Raider: The Art of Survival, and Zachary Levi’s The Final Hours of Tomb Raider documentary series, it’s going to make a great present. For yourself, of course!
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is set to head to Playstation 4 and Xbox One on 28th January in North America and 31st January for Europe (confirmed via the game’s official Tumblr). The Xbox One version features Kinect voice controls for weapon modding and menus, while the PS4 controller will light up when you’re using your torch. There’s no shortage of selling points here really. You can currently pre-order the pS4 version and the Xbox One version on Amazon.com for $59.99.
