Crystal Dynamics, a Square Enix studio recently announced that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The release date has now been confirmed as next month.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is the character defining action-adventure where a young and inexperienced Lara Croft transforms into a hardened survivor. This fully re-built version for PlayStation 4 system and Xbox One features an obsessively detailed Lara and a fully realised lifelike world. Included in this new rendition is an all new Lara model created to take advantage of the power and the TRESS FX technology that delivers realistic hair simulation and motion with every strand being physically active, as well as reworked shader and lighting techniques to showcase the raw physicality of Lara’s journey through sweat, mud, and blood materials and effects.
“Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is so named as it’s exactly what we’ve custom built for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 system consoles,” said Crystal Dynamics Executive Producer, Scot Amos. “The new hardware let us finally express the original vision in all of its glory. This was a continued labour of love. We pulled the game apart and rebuilt it with painstaking detail to add enhanced visual storytelling but without changing the award winning tale. The end result is a cinematic living world. We can’t wait for fans and newcomers alike to experience this rebuilt epic adventure.”
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will be available on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 from 31st January 2014, with a recommended retail price (RRP) of £49.99 GBP. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Tomb Raider videogame franchise.
