The PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles get their first big multi-platform game of 2014 on January 28, when Square Enix releases a beefed up port of its early 2013 hit, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. Lara Croft’s rebooted origin story gets a big visual boost in its upcoming appearance, now taking advantage of the PC version’s TRESS FX technology that powers Lara’s realistic hair movement (YUP) and freshly enhanced lighting and shaders. Those of you with decent-or-better gaming PCs can get a sense of what Definitive Edition will look like in Tomb Raider‘s PC version.
The January 28 re-release also includes a few other extras, including all of the previously released (multiplayer-only) DLC, digital versions of the Dark Horse comic, a mini art book from Brady Games, and Final Hours developer videos. Pre-order customers also nab special art book packaging. No, it’s not the most exciting assortment of extras. Tomb Raider is an outstanding game though; if you’ve been holding off for whatever reason and you have a shiny, new console, then you might just want to wait the extra two months for Definitive Edition.
