Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 PlayStation 4 1

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. The date's a Tuesday which isn't necessarily in line with typical European releases, but publisher Square Enix may be planning a simultaneous launch with North America.

There's reason to believe that this is accurate because an employee at GameStop Italy managed to snap a picture of his store's database, which shows the same date for this long overdue port. Perhaps most fascinating is the price: €70.98, which is about $78.34. To be fair, most new games in Europe carry the same cost – but it seems incredibly steep when the Xbox One version can be bought for a lot less.

Of course, much of this could be placeholder information, and we still don't know whether the PS4 version will include any extra content. Crystal Dynamics, the game's developer, has said that the port's still on track for this year, but it's keeping the specifics close to its chest. We'll contact the publisher about the authenticity of this date, and let you know if we hear anything else.
