Lara Croft’s 2013 origin story will receive an additional graphical boost for the next-gen consoles with the Definitive Edition, but sadly PC owners are in the same pot as the current-gen gamers; the remade title will not be coming to PC.
During the VGX awards late last year, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was announced for Xbox One and PS4; the new version of the 2013 “GOTY” nominee will run in 1080p, and includes all post-launch DLC, a remodeled Lara Croft, voice commands via Kinect for Xbox One, color-coded Dualshock 4 responses for the PS4 (i.e. the light turns red when Lara equips a torch), along with TRESS FX physics simulation. As of right now, Definitive Edition is strictly a PS4/One exclusive, as it was designed “from the ground up for next-generation consoles”. According to the Eidos forums, a PC version “is not planned” at the moment.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will release on 1/28 for Xbox One and PS4 for $59.99; a next-gen upgrade program will not be available for those who currently own Tomb Raider for 360 and PS3.
