Square-Enix has announced Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox, a game already released on PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, but one the publisher says that’s been ”re-built specifically for next gen consoles” and will release on January 28th, 2014.
According to Square-Enix, the Definitive Edition includes, “all of the DLC, including the Tomb of the Lost Adventurer, six outfits for Lara, a digital mini art book, and the digital comic The Beginning.” Amazon also has an “Art Book Packaging Edition” listed for each console, which includes “an insider’s look at exclusive, never before seen concept art.”
The firm also said that the Definitive Edition features ”an obsessively detailed Lara and a fully realized lifelike world.” A new Lara Croft model has been crafted, and TRESS FX technology brings “realistic hair simulation and motion,” plus shaders and lighting have been reworked “to showcase the raw physicality of Lara’s journey through sweat, mud, and blood materials and effects.”
The game, according to Square-Enix, will run at native 1080p resolution, although on which, if not both platforms said resolution will be realized wasn’t mentioned. And all textures “have been created at 4x resolution for maximum resolution and detail,” plus characters, enemies and environments have been “enhanced for added depth and realism.”
