Rise of the Tomb Raider has been released back in November 2015 for Xbox 360 and Xbox One. A few months later, in January 2016, the game has also been released for Windows PC. Well, almost one year after the game has been released for Microsoft’s consoles, the Rise of the Tomb Raider is coming to the Sony’s PlayStation 4.
The Rise of the Tomb Raider for PS4 will make its appearance on October 11, 2016 in a new 20 Year Celebration edition. This version of the game will come with a completely new story chapter that will be named Blood Ties.
To make the game even better, the developers have brought a new co-op Endurance gameplay, PlayStation VR support for the new Blood Ties chapter, extra weapons, outfits, Expedition Cards and, of course, the previous released DLC. The gamers will also be able to get a limited edition art book that will be included in the package.
It is good to know that all the new content will also be available for FREE for the Xbox One and PC gamers that have purchased the season pass of the game. Unfortunately, this update will not include VR support. A Rise of the Tomb Raider season pass doesn’t exist for PS4 as the entire extra content is included in the new game version.
According to the developer, the PlayStation VR support will allow gamers to unlock the mysteries of Croft Manor in first person, which the new co-op Endurance mode will allow the players to team-up with their friends and complete missions together.
In order to celebrate the history of Tomb Raider, the developers have also brought a re-envisioned version of the cold-weather outfit and the Hailstorm piston that Lara has used in the Tomb Raider 3. A classic Lara card pack will allow gamers to play as various “versions” of the character from over the years. This also includes the original Lara model that has been released back in 1996.
If you are a professional player, then you will most like want to try out the “Extreme Survivor” difficulty that’s not for beginners, as you will be able to save the game only if you have enough resources to light campfires. In other words, if you don’t have enough resources to light a campfire and you die, you will return to the last campfire that you’ve lighted.
