Rumour: Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Washes Up on PS4

Posted by Sammy Barker

Capsizing on a new console

Poor ol’ Lara Croft’s holiday from Hell looks set to continue on the PlayStation 4, as Amazon Italy has uploaded a rogue product page suggesting that Crystal Dynamics’ critically acclaimed Tomb Raider reboot is firing onto the next generation format. Dubbed the ‘Definitive Version’, the re-release will supposedly ship with all of the title’s DLC expansions – and presumably those fancy hair physics from the PC edition.

If that’s not enough to get you to double-dip, the listing also indicates that pre-orders will come with an art book and premium packaging. The next-gen overhaul is supposedly due out on 24th January, which doesn’t give publisher Square Enix a whole lot of time to actually, y’know, officially confirm it. Still, outrageous expectations aside, the game sold extremely well on current generation consoles, so we could certainly see it making the leap. The question is: are you eager to play it again?

I didn't think i was going to like the game but it was brilliant really. Not sure i would buy it again though just for better graphics & the extra DLC stuff. Just do a Tomb Raider 2 for the PS4

I'm in a bit of a pickle now. Bought this at launch, but haven't had chance to play it yet. Was definitely going to play it at Christmas without fail. Not sure I can wait until January... But I know it will look so much prettier...

loved the game. would consider if tue upgrade was cheap. not at full price.

I bought this for pc and of course my processor can hardly run it, so if I havent upgraded my computer by then Ill have to pick it up for ps4, I really enjoyed it so far but im only 3 hours in, since I started getting only 10 fps

I'll probably pick this one up, could use a few games to play on my PS4 besides Killzone and Resogun.



Tasuki said:

I played it and beat it on the PC over at my friends place but I have never bought my own copy. Might pick this up then cause this is one of my top goty candidates for 2013.

One of my top 5 games of the year and if it were a PS4 launch game I may have re- bought it but if Thief and inFamous Second Son stay on track, January is too close to the release of those two. Still if any new PS4 owner hasn't played Tomb Raider on current-gen, it's definitely worth a purchase.

I don't normally double dip on games (Unless it's name is DooM), but I enjoyed the Tomb Raider reboot enough that I'd purchase it again.

Sweet! This would be awesome! Best thing: I wouldn't even have to double dip, because I never played this game. Jan. 14th would be too close to Second Son, but I'll definitely buy a next gen version of Tomb Raider sometimes...loved the first two parts with a passion.

@Banedracul Right! Can't wait what id will be able to do on PS4 with the id5 engine...Rage looked amazing on 360 and PS3, considering the age of the hardware.



Banedracul said:

@Reverend_Skeeve Rage is the only Id game that I've never played, was it any good? Haha, and trust me, I've been thinking about that! I've loved every single version/sequel of Doom, and I can't wait for 4 to get out of development hell so I can play it on PS4. (I have a decent enough PC, but always preferred console play.)



Reverend_Skeeve said:

@Banedracul I loved no small part to the fantastic was very clear that this was not done with the Unreal engine (which often gives games a brownish/muddy look, I think)...and I loved the art design and post-apocalyptic setting. The story didn't realize its full potential, as it's often the case with id games, but I enjoyed the game a lot...i pumped many hours into the card trading mini game included alone. Would definitely buy it again on PS4 for shinier graphics and will keep an eye out for part two.

I also prefer console gaming by far for the last 10 years or so...playing games from the comfort of your couch on the big screen without having to worry about drivers, configuration or the latest hardware is sweet.

That game is really cool. Liked it a lot. Crystal Dynamics is the best...
