Square Enix have announced that the eagerly anticipated PC version of Rise Of The Tomb Raider will launch on January 28th – you can check out the launch trailer for the game below:
“Bringing the game’s thrilling narrative and perilous environments to PC in stunning new detail, developers Crystal Dynamics and Nixxes Software added numerous features, including Windows 10 support and 4K resolution. Rise of the Tomb Raider was nominated for Best Action/Adventure for The Game Awards and follows the critically acclaimed, award-winning Tomb Raider.”
I played Rise Of The Tomb Raider on the Xbox One and I thought it was one of the finest games released in 2015. It received a ton of praise from reviewers too, though it did suffer a little sales wise – perhaps owed to the fact it released on the same day as blockbuster title Fallout 4 as well as being a timed exclusive for the Xbox One. Microsoft have confirmed though that sales picked up and the game has broke through the 1 million copies sold barrier; something it fully deserves. This PC release gives it a chance to reach a new audience too.
“The PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available as a digital download via Steam, the Windows Store, Amazon, the Square Enix e-store and other major retailers – both in-store and online. Standard edition pricing is £39.99/€49.99. The Digital Deluxe edition is £59.99/€77.99 and includes a Season Pass to nearly all current and future DLC.
A Collector’s Edition, which includes the Digital Deluxe version of the game, a 12-inch Lara Croft statue, replicas of Lara’s journal and jade necklace, and a steel case, will also be available from the Square Enix e-store for £109.99/€129.99.”
Rise Of The Tomb Raider will be available on PC on January 28th – it’s available right now on Xbox One at retail and digitally. Expect news of a Playstation 4 release later this year.
