A whole Lara love
Sony always makes the best press kits – but it may have been beaten by Square Enix here.

Just a heads up: Rise of the Tomb Raider has finally released on the PlayStation 4 today.

News Ogle Rise of the Tomb Raider's Assets on PS4 Pro
What a difference a year makes. Just 12 months ago, Rise of the Tomb Raider was one of the tentpole titles in Microsoft's "greatest ever" Xbox lineup -- and now it's one of the posterchilds of the PlayStation 4 Pro. Maybe -- just maybe -- Square Enix played a blinder after all. Or, perhaps, this title's going to flop for the second or...

Poll Will You Pay Full Price for Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4?
It's a Lara money
The rumour that Rise of the Tomb Raider is set to release on the PlayStation 4 on 11th October prompted some pretty interesting discussion here on Push Square this weekend.

Rumour Lara Croft's Rise of the Tomb Raider Rushes PS4 on 11th October
And it may not be cheap
Ex-Xbox One exclusive Rise of the Tomb Raider will purportedly shimmy to the PlayStation 4 on 11th October, assuming that a product listing on the Italian arm of GameStop is accurate.

News Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4's Still Holed Up in Croft Manor
Lara, where are yer?
You know the story by now: Microsoft paid to delay Rise of the Tomb Raider for a year on the PlayStation 4, with the action adventure due out on Sony's system in late 2016. As big fans of the franchise, we've actually been eagerly awaiting a release date for the critically acclaimed sequel, but it just won't come. We thought...
News Could Rise of the Tomb Raider Plunder PS4 Earlier Than Expected?
PC launch due in January
It seems that Rise of the Tomb Raider will launch on the PC in January, perhaps saving the game's sales blushes after a disastrous Xbox exclusive release. This is consistent with Square Enix's comments that the PC edition would deploy in "early 2016" – but it seems sooner than even we anticipated. Could the company's...
News Rise of the Tomb Raider's Launch Trailer Readies You for PS4's Fall 2016 Release
Make your mark
Word on the retail grapevine is that Rise of the Tomb Raider's not trending well, but Microsoft and Square Enix still have a couple of weeks to turn that around. This launch trailer for the temporary Xbox exclusive may help, as we see Lara Croft coming face to face with a group named Trinity, who are in search of MacGuffin artefacts...

News Enjoy a Lara Rise of the Tomb Raider Gameplay Footage
With a PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider confirmed for 2016, we suppose that we should start covering it like any other game.

Gamescom 2015 Rise of the Tomb Raider Goes Gung-Ho in Gameplay Trailer
Crystal Dynamics looked to Uncharted for inspiration for its Tomb Raider reboot, and it looks like the developer's used Naughty Dog as a guide again.

News Square Enix Knew Rise of the Tomb Raider's Timed Exclusivity Would P*** Off PS4 Players
Well, that's a start
Square Enix may actually understand its audience after all, as the publisher's European and North American boss Phil Rogers has admitted that the company knew it would "disappoint fans" by essentially delaying the PlayStation 4 version of Rise of the Tomb Raider. The company still seems adamant that this was a good business...
Poll Will You Be Buying Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4?

News Australian Retailer Lists PS4 Version of Rise of the Tomb Raider
The Xbox One may have an exclusivity deal on Rise of the Tomb Raider for the time being, but that doesn't mean that Lara Croft's latest adventure is never coming to the PlayStation 4. We've said it from the beginning: once the holidays are over and Crystal Dynamics has fulfilled its contract, you can expect to hear word of a PS4 port. And while...
Rumour Rise of the Tomb Raider to Clamber onto PS4 in Late 2016
Port will apparently not be full-price
Time to take out your mouth guard and chomp down on a tasty rumour regarding Rise of the Tomb Raider: the Xbox exclusive will apparently release on the PlayStation 4 in Q4 2016. This tidbit comes courtesy of YouTube channel The Know, which has a shaky track record right now; the account successfully leaked Dark...
News Rise of the Tomb Raider Dev Sympathises with PS4 Players
Xbox exclusivity a problem for PlayStation fans
Rise of the Tomb Raider isn't coming out on the PlayStation 4 – well, not yet anyway. In all likelihood, the release will launch on Sony's system six or so months after the Xbox version deploys in November – but that's still quite a long wait for fans of the franchise. Asked whether PlayStation...
E3 2015 What Have They Done to Lara Croft's Face in Rise of the Tomb Raider?
Seeing as Microsoft stuck rigidly to its Holiday 2015 qualifier for Rise of the Tomb Raider's exclusivity, we can safely assume that it's coming to the PlayStation 4 next year. As such, we're stretching things a little, we know – but its gameplay demonstration is probably just about worth sharing here. In the clip, we see...
News We Should Probably Post This Rise of the Tomb Raider Video, Right?
Ice ice, baby
Well, this is all a bit awkward, isn't it? Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, recently re-iterated that Rise of the Tomb Raider is a timed exclusive, so we should probably post this brand new trailer, right? You'll have to forgive us for all of the Microsoft branding which is plastered all over the, admittedly brief, clip, then. There's...
News Yes, You Probably Will Still See Rise of the Tomb Raider on PS4 Someday
Why are we waiting
There was a slight scare recently, as avid Tomb Raider fans discovered a Facebook post by Xbox Australia, which stated that Rise of the Tomb Raider was not a timed exclusive, and was, in fact, a fully exclusive Xbox One title. This information contradicted what Xbox boss Phil Spencer had said about th
News Rise of the Tomb Raider Could Still Plot Lara Croft's Revival on PS4
"We'll come back to that at a later date"
There's a real danger that Rise of the Tomb Raider could end up being defined by behind-the-scenes business decisions, and Game Informer's latest cover story is evidence of that. While the publication's coverage includes plenty of details about Lara Croft's forthcoming foray, most people want to know one...
News Yes, Lara Croft Will Likely Still Climb onto PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider
We daresay that that recent Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End demo may have prompted you to forget about poor Lara Croft – after all, the recent Tomb Raider reboot, while thoroughly enjoyable, was very derivative of Nathan Drake’s primary PlayStation 3 escapades. However, the forthcoming Rise of Tomb Raider has been brought back to...
News Don't Worry, Crystal Dynamics Considered Your Feelings Over the Whole Tomb Raider Ordeal

"We don't have an action adventure game of that quality"

Reaction Why Lara Croft Will Still Raid PS4 in Rise of the Tomb Raider
Reading between the lines
Kudos to Microsoft, it actually dropped a press conference megaton. While we’d argue that Jack Tretton’s corporate beatdown at E3 2013 was a memorable media briefing moment, it wasn’t exactly a huge surprise – in fact, those are becoming rarer as the major industry players all merge into a similar entity. The fact...
Gamescom 2014 Wait, Rise of the Tomb Raider Isn't Coming to PS4?
Them's the breaks
We were promised surprises at this year's Gamescom conference, but this isn't exactly what we had in mind. That's right, it seems that the absurdly titled Rise of the Tomb Raider won't be making its way to the PlayStation 4 after all. During Microsoft's media briefing today it was announced that Lara Croft's latest hellish holiday...
News PS4 Sequel Rise of the Tomb Raider Is Taking Motion Capture to the Next Level
We thoroughly enjoyed Crystal Dynamics’ tense Tomb Raider reboot on both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, but in many ways it felt like an Uncharted game with a slightly smaller budget.
