Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition coming to PS4 and Xbox One in January

Updated visuals and all the DLC in a new high-end package

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will bring Lara Croft's rebooted origin story to PS4 and Xbox One on Jan. 28, 2014, Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics confirmed on Saturday.

Both Lara and Yamatai Island will receive higher resolution textures and refined lighting for their new appearance. TressFX, which was previously exclusive to Tomb Raider's PC version, will allow physics and environmental conditions to more realistically tousle Lara's locks. The game will run in native 1080p resolution on both consoles.


The Definitive Edition will also include all of the original game's multiplayer DLC, digital versions of the Dark Horse comic, a mini artbook, and Final Hours developer videos. Pre-order editions of the $59.99 game will include special art book packaging.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was first found in an Amazon Italy product listing in November, whereupon Square Enix teased it would have more to reveal in December. Tomb Raider's as yet unnamed sequel will cover "the next chapter of Lara's development."

We found Tomb Raider to be "violent, scary, ambitious, and inventive" in our review of the game, even though it didn't have quite enough tombs.
