TOMB RAIDER®: DEFINITIVE EDITION is the character defining action-adventure where a young and inexperienced Lara Croft transforms into a hardened survivor. This fully re-built version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One features an obsessively detailed Lara and a fully realized lifelike world.

Lara Croft in unprecedented detail:

-       TRESS FX technology that delivers realistic hair simulation and motion for the new Lara

-       Increased polygon body density with new sweat, mud and blood materials and effects

A world in constant motion:

-       Underbrush reacts as Lara passes by, wind whips tree branches and tattered cloth around, rain pierces through searchlight beams as individually lit particles

-       All texture resolutions have been increased by over 4x for maximum detail

-       In-game characters have been enhanced for added realism

-       Subsurface scattering technology literally renders the world’s beauty beyond skin deep

-       Native 1080p gameplay for outstanding visual fidelity

The Definitive Edition of the award-winning action-adventure includes all of the original downloadable content, plus digital versions of the Dark Horse comic, Brady Games mini-art book and the Final Hours developer videos. Customers who pre-order will receive special art book packaging featuring never-before-seen concept art.
