Nominated for over 85 “Best Of” awards, Rise of the Tomb Raider features Lara Croft becoming more than a survivor as she embarks on her first Tomb Raiding expedition to the most treacherous and remote regions of Siberia. The 20 Year Celebration edition includes the new “Blood Ties” single player story chapter, “Lara’s Nightmare” zombie combat, new Co-op Endurance gameplay, VR support for PlayStation 4 , “Extreme Survivor” difficulty for the main campaign, 20 Year Celebration outfit and gun, 5 classic Lara skins and all previously released Downloadable Content.
“The studio is celebrating with all Tomb Raider fans, thanking them for being on Lara’s 20 year journey with us,” said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “The team has packed in surprises, new story, and the top-requested special features into this 20 Year Celebration edition.”
“Blood Ties,” a new premium DLC, beckons players to explore Croft Manor in a new story mode; then defend it against a zombie invasion in “Lara’s Nightmare”. When Lara’s uncle contests ownership of the Manor, Lara must explore the estate to find proof that she is the rightful heir, or lose her birthright and father’s secrets for good. Players can then test their zombie-killing skills in the replayable “Lara’s Nightmare” mode: a haunted Croft Manor where players have new challenges and must rid the Manor of an evil presence.
Additionally, support for PlayStation VR empowers players to unlock the mysteries of Croft Manor in first person.
“This year we celebrate 20 years of the iconic Lara Croft,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “This provided the perfect opportunity for us to deliver a new Tomb Raider experience. With the addition of PlayStation VR support, you can play the world through Lara’s eyes for the first time in franchise history.”
Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration is coming to the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 11th 2016 – find out more about the game on the official website through this link.
