Announced last night via Spike’s VGX 2013 award show was Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, a rebuilt and remade version of the Xbox 360/PS3 versions of the game. Gamers that missed out on the previous generation versions (but really, why would you?) will have another chance to grab hold of what is one of the best Tomb Raider games in a long time.
Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will feature all of the DLC from the last generation consoles. Xbox One’s new Kinect functionality consists of navigating menus, changing weapons, discovering viewpoints, etc. It will also run at 1080p and all textures “have been created at 4x resolution for maximum resolution and detail.” While characters, enemies and environments have been “enhanced for added depth and realism.” Here is a list of what is included in this re-mastered edition:
– The fully rebuilt game for next-generation consoles
– The Tomb of the Lost Adventurer
– Eight DLC multiplayer maps
– Six DLC multiplayer weapons
– Four DLC multiplayer characters
– Six outfits for Lara
– Dark Horse digital comic book “Tomb Raider: The Beginning”
– Brady Games digital art book “Tomb Raider: The Art of Survival”
– “The Final Hours of Tomb Raider” documentary series
