News – Rise of the Tomb Raider coming to PS4 with extras

When Rise of the Tomb Raider is finally released on the PS4 on October 11th it will be under the title of Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration and, along with the game, feature some extras over the original Xbox One and PC version.

Amongst the additions is a brand new chapter titled Blood Ties that can be played with or without the PlayStation VR. Blood Ties sees Lara’s uncle claiming that he is the rightful owner of Croft Manor, although, playing as Lara, it’s up to you to explore her home to prove that the fancy place does indeed belong to her. The Lara’s Nightmare mode also allows you to defend the manor from a zombie attack and rid the place of an evil presence.

The game will also include all the previously released DLC, an extreme difficulty level, which takes away checkpoints. There will also be a new expansion for the online co-op Endurance mode.

You will also be able to play the game as five classic Lara Croft models, and I don’t mean updated models either, but rather actual past models, which is sure to give many of us a laugh.

With the almost year long wait for PS4 owners, they’ll be happy to learn that plenty of effort has obviously gone into this port. If you own the game on Xbox One or PC all the new content (bar the VR support) will be offered as paid for DLC, or if you have purchased the Season Pass, you’ll be able to receive the content for no extra charge.
