Rise of the Tomb Raider comes to PS4 on October 11


Looks like PlayStation 4 owners have another game to look forward to this fall! Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will arrive for PS4 on October 11th. It’s the same game that’s currently available on Xbox One and PC, but with a few extra goodies.

Sony teamed up with Nixxes Software (responsible for the Xbox 360 and PC port of the game) to bring exclusive features that REALLY make the game stand out. The game will include all previous DLC, but there will be a new mission called “Blood Ties” which takes place in Croft Manor and will allow you to unlock its many secrets. Another mission “Lara’s Nightmare” has you defending the Manor against an army of undead. “Blood Ties” will also be compatible with PlayStation VR so you’ll be able to play the mission in a first-person perspective!


That’s not all, a new online co-op expansion will also be available for Endurance mode; you and a friend can raid tombs together and compete for the best score. Along with that is the “Extreme Survivor” setting that heightens the difficulty and removes all checkpoints. The only way to save is to get enough resources to light the campfires along the way. Good luck.

Custom skins will also be available, such as a revised version of the cold-weather outfit and Hailstorm pistol from Tomb Raider III. A special card pack will unlock 5 classic Lara models to replay the story chapters with. We’re talking PS1 low-poly count model Lara Croft! No screenshots have been released of that skin in action, but we’re looking forward to seeing it!


It is unknown if any of these features will make their way to the Xbox One or PC, but as of right now PS4 owners have every reason to be excited come October 11th! We reviewed the PC version of Rise of the Tomb Raider and we gave it 4.5 out of 5 atoms (would’ve been 5 if it was a better port) so it’s definitely worth a purchase!

l love to play games and write stuff about them. I can't play something and not tell anyone how I feel about it. Call it a sickness, because it is.
