A new Definitive Edition of this years amazingly fun Lara Croft reboot by Square Enix and developer Crystal Dynamics (just titled ‘Tomb Raider’), is jumping from it’s cliff face to Microsoft and Sony’s next generation offerings. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 version of the game will feature previous PC AMD TressFX hair rendering technology (yes, that’s a thing!), revamped character models and a host of DLC content (8 DLC multiplayer maps, 6 DLC multiplayer weapons, 4 DLC multiplayer characters and 6 outfits for Lara) …not to mention a comic book, digital art book and the documentary series looking at the making of the game called The Final Hours.

Each systems USP’s will also be utilised, with Kinect support for Xbox One and Vita streaming on PS4. The Ps4 will also make use of the “lights” on the Dualshock 4 controller which will flicker like a torch.

    Already have this game on 360, I wonder if it’ll be worth buying again…

      If you’ve got all the DLC …maybe not. If you enjoyed it however, the improved graphics and physics make a big improvement.

      • Anthony says:

        It was great, but the story wasn’t immersive enough for me. The only thing that could make me buy this new version would be the story being extended and at least partially revised… Well, let’s wait and see!

    I’d need to see them side by side – not much of an improvement I can see :/
