Close to a year after the game released on Xbox One, Square Enix, Crystal Dynamics, and Nixxes Software have released the definitive edition of Rise of the Tomb Raider for PS4. This time Lara becomes more than a survivor, and embarks on her first Tomb Raiding expedition in search of the secret of immortality. She’ll explore a vast and hostile world, engage in guerilla combat, and discover deadly tombs.
After uncovering an ancient mystery, Lara must explore the most treacherous and remote regions of Siberia to find the secret of immortality before a ruthless organization known as Trinity beats her to it. Faced with the mysterious Remnant leader Jacob, the constant threats of Trinity’s leader Konstantin, and driven by her Father’s unfinished legacy, Lara must become the Tomb Raider she is destined to be.
“Tomb Raider is one of Square Enix’s crowning achievements, and I am proud of the many adventures we’ve taken with Lara Croft over the years, particularly with Rise of the Tomb Raider,” said Yosuke Matsuda, president and representative director of Square Enix. “We plan to continue Lara’s enduring legacy by exploring new and innovative ways for players to experience her character and story.”
Dubbed the 20 Year Celebration, this version of the game is the most comprehensive version of the award-winning experience which includes the game along with a host of completely new content such as the new story chapter Blood Ties, Lara’s Nightmare zombie combat mode, PSVR support for Blood Ties, co-op Endurance gameplay, an Extreme Survivor difficulty, five classic Lara skins, and an outfit and weapon inspired by TR III. It also includes all of the previously released downloadable content such as the critically acclaimed Baba Yaga: The Temple of the Witch, Cold Darkness Awakened, 12 outfits, seven weapons, multiple Expedition Card packs, and more.
“Our development team has crafted the ultimate package in Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration,” said Scot Amos, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “The game and all of the new additions delivers something for every gamer with an epic single-player story, survival co-op action, and a fully immersive virtual reality story chapter.”
“Being a part of Tomb Raider history has been such an honor for the team,” said Ron Rosenberg, Co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “We’re excited to share this journey with our fans, in what has become the Year of Tomb Raider.”
As a special launch week bonus, Square Enix is awarding everyone who logs in and plays the game on any available platform with 100,000 in-game credits, with which players can purchase Expedition Cards to be used in a variety of replay modes.
