Lara Croft’s next momentous adventure will launch on PC later this month with three editions to choose from.
The second chapter of Lara Croft’s prequel tale, Rise of the Tomb Raider launched as a Microsoft-exclusive title last year for both the Xbox One and 360. Lara’s current tale is only a timed-exclusive, as the PC version will arrive in late January, followed by the Sony releases on a later date. Earlier today, publisher Square Enix announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will officially release for PC on Jan. 28 through various online and digital outlets, including Steam, Amazon, the Windows 10 Store and Square Enix’s own store.
Apart from the standard $59.99 edition, Tomb Raider fans have the option of purchasing an $89.99 “Digital Deluxe Edition”, containing “nearly” all current Microsoft DLC and upcoming content. The Digital Deluxe Edition will be available through several digital markets, however Square Enix will be offering an exclusive $149.99 physical “Collector’s Edition” through their own store. The Rise of the Tomb Raider – Collector’s Edition includes a 12″ tall Lara Croft statue, Season Pass, replicas of Lara’s in-game journal and jade necklace, and a Steelbook case- despite the game itself being a digital copy.
The minimum system requirements are as follows, courtesy of Square Enix:
