Tomb Raider will celebrate its anniversary in style
Tomb Raider will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a new edition of Rise Of The Tomb Raider. Set for release on October 11, it’ll be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
The package will include the original Rise Of The Tomb Raider, plus all the previously-released DLC. It’s also bursting at the seams with additional content: we’re talking a completely new story chapter entitled Blood Ties (with PlayStation VR support), a “Lara’s Nightmare” mode, brand-new Endurance co-operative play, more Expedition Cards, added weapons and outfits, and a brutal new “Extreme Survivor” difficulty mode that has no checkpoints. There will also be an art book included with the Limited Edition. Those who own the Season Pass on Xbox One and PC will automatically receive the content for free, and the existing Season Pass will be updated to include the new content.
Blood Ties will have players exploring Croft Manor where Lara must find proof that she is its rightful heir, or lose her birthright and father’s secrets for good. In the replayable Lara’s Nightmare mode, you’ll get to defend the same manor against hordes of zombies and other evils in VR.
“This year we celebrate 20 years of the iconic Lara Croft,” said Ron Rosenberg, the studio head at Crystal Dynamics. “This provided the perfect opportunity for us to deliver a new Tomb Raider experience. With the addition of PlayStation VR support, you can play the world through Lara’s eyes for the first time in franchise history.”
