Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition launch trailer lets down its flowing next-gen hair

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is out next week, bringing rebooted Lara Croft’s island adventure to the newer generation of PlayStation and Xbox hardware. The core game is largely unchanged from its release in March 2013, with the extras that make it “definitive” taking the form of previously released multiplayer DLC and a bonus tomb to raid that was only available as a pre-order bonus.

The big change is on the presentation side, with all of the graphical bells, whistles, and klaxons turned up to 11. It’s like you’re playing the PC version, except on a console in your living room. If you have a PC connected to your TV then you know what that feels like. We’ll have a review of the next-gen re-release for you next week, but the game in its original form is exceptional, as you can see in last year’s review. And if you want a closer look at the visual differences right now, go ahead and check out this PlayStation 3/PlayStation 4 comparison.
