Nice. Good to see each console have their own unique gameplay..
Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II  +   536d ago
Definitive version... yea or just a quick port as the game performed poorly for eidos sales wise.
Sevir  +   536d ago
It didn't perform poorly, Square Enid over estimated it's sales forcast. It sold 3.5 million during the quarter it launched, square, thought they were gonna sell 5 million...

There's a reason why Crystal Dynamics is working on a sequel.
Deadpoolio  +   536d ago
Uh it sold less than they expected, it still sold over 5 million genius
Stevino321  +   536d ago
I disagree. Tomb Raider is a successful series. This is the perfect chance to play it without having to go back to PS3 or Xbox 360.

'Completely rebuilt'

Call me a cynic or call me wrong after it launches but if it isn't just the PC version with a few tweaks to the graphics settings and assets with some control gimmicks lobbed in I'll be surprised. Good excuse to try and sell the game again, we are seeing a lot of these sorta cross gen upgrades

Still a great game though, completed it tonight.

While I'll agree this seems like a lackluster improvement over the current gen offerings, Tomb Raider was still a good reboot.

I really enjoyed the game. For what they are adding to the "next gen" versions though I'll pass as the previous gen versions were good enough visually to me and I've already got my entertainment out of it.

That said, for those hold outs out there this would still be a good game to pick up if you already have a PS4 or XB One and didn't get the previous gen versions.
UltimateMaster  +   536d ago
Wii U?
Ooops, still not getting it.
It's been out for over a year and consoles that just came out will get an HD treatment remake.
Seraphim  +   535d ago
considering I just now bought it for $15 Black Friday and am just finally playing it.... I'll stick to the PS3 version. It is nice to see added features, PS Vita play but I don't see a reason for dropping 60 more bones on this game again. It's solid so far so if i'm bored and it's $20 maybe I'll break down eventually.... Quite frankly disappointing. They should have focused on pushing out a new entry with this engine.
EVILDEAD360  +   535d ago
EASILY top 3 funnest game I played this year on ANY game. I loved Tomb Raider. But, I would have rather them throw in like this exclusive side story DLC ala Bioshock: Infinite or make some new puzzle bonus levels inside the game.

Either way, cool for people who buy the next gen systems and didn't get to play this gem.

NeloAnjelo  +   535d ago
It was a great game. Sales doesn't equal quality.

By Square's ridiculous "forecast" it underperformed. However the game sold millions and much better than other franchises under Square. This and Sleeping Dogs were fantastic and good for the industry.

Not everything has to be COD and GTA numbers wise.

It is sad, when a GOTY performed poorly. I hope Eidos gives us a cheap $10 upgrade on next generation console, since I bought the digital version of Tomb Raider on Xbox 360.

Still haven't had time to try it.

it will.
Spenok  +   536d ago
Maybe if you read the article you would know.

...(yes, yes it will)
vulcanproject  +   536d ago
I'll be honest tress fx looks weird in the game more than it seems natural. It flicks around and seems a bit distracting quite a lot. Not to mention when every other character you see in the game is noticeably less follically endowed there is rather a stark contrast.

I left it turned on but I'm not sure what it exactly adds, apart from sometimes having Lara appear as if she had the spawn of cousin itt sat on her head having random seizures

The Real Name:

Tomb Raider: The PC Version

Coming to PS4 and XBONE
princejb134  +   535d ago
yea i want this game but for full price no way
ill wait for a price drop
svoulis  +   536d ago
Will only consider getting this if it's in fact 60fps 1080p. Tressfx was pretty taxing onpc so we'll see
bjmartynhak  +   536d ago
1080p, more eye candy, more effects.
No, it won't be 60 fps.

Maybe high 30-45 fps, like Killzone SF
MidnytRain  +   536d ago
Variable frame rates aren't going to be the norm.
NeloAnjelo  +   535d ago
So? Framerate doesn't determine quality.
curtis92  +   536d ago
Why on earth would that be a prerequisite for this game? I just.... whatever dude.
Are_The_MaDNess  +   536d ago
TressFX isnt Taxing on the PC anymore.....
tho the DOF is really badly optimized in that game.
Back-to-Back  +   535d ago
Well you are wrong. Why must console only owners comment on pc features?

Proof: http://gamingbolt.com/tomb-...
Stsonic  +   536d ago
It should be 1080p/60. My 7950 toasted this game.

thezeldadoth  +   535d ago
tressfx wasn't really taxing at all
ricochetmg  +   536d ago
If you never played it well worth a play. The multiplayer is kinda garbage but playable.
KwietStorm  +   535d ago
Lol well is it garbage or playable? I can't put those both in the same sentence, though from every video I saw, it did look like a crappy me-too Uncharted multiplayer. I never played the game though, so I might get it for the story.
ricochetmg  +   535d ago
You just gotta play it its kinda like a crappy uncharted like multiplayer in which I like but it was a good effort.
Are_The_MaDNess  +   536d ago
really like the new Lara, the new Meshes and Textures does alot to her for detail.
hope they dont cheap out on the PC guys, hopefully they can just patch it for us.
Eldyraen  +   536d ago
As much as I'd like that to happen I don't see Square even thinking of doing that for PC crowd.

I'll probably rent the definitive version when it comes out though just because I did enjoy TR but not buying a new version as PC could hold me over just fine all things considered. I still don't think its a bad thing they 'ported'/updated it for new consoles as could get a few more sales and it is actually a very good game.
Are_The_MaDNess  +   536d ago
yeah, i have a feeling about it aswell. they would never do anything nice for the PC crowd oven tho we have been here from the start and is still here.

well its a simple mod with Texmod like all the other tombraider games, they will be able to rip the data from the new game no matter what.
just wish they did something nice for a change without needing to mod the game ourselfs.
Eamon  +   536d ago
So what's the difference between this and the PC version?
Are_The_MaDNess  +   536d ago
new textures and meshes for the Lara model. nothing more really. they say that they have better meshes and textures in the world aswell. but comparing to what? think they meant over the old gen version and not the PC version.

on a side note, the PC version is still on Sale this very moment with all the DLC on sale aswell at 80% off. thats 10 euros for the game and less than 5 euros for all the DLC.......
or you can just skip all the Online DLC since you wont be playing a Tomb Raider game to play online anyway.

Eamon  +   536d ago
Thanks for that! I got the surival edition + the tomb dlc for single player. Great offer!
Soldierone  +   536d ago
Wtf.... they are charging 60 dollars for it? Should only be 40.... bargain bin it is, I'll just be happy with the PS3 version for now.
ho0lee0h  +   536d ago
Did you even see it has a fancy artbook? Worth $20 to me.
Soldierone  +   536d ago
Got the "fancy artbook" with the PS3 version, it was a limited edition from Amazon.
nategrigs  +   536d ago
Sold. I haven't played it but hear great things. This seems like a good way to experience it for the first time....Hopefully I can beat it before infamous comes out
Corpser  +   536d ago
Looks amazing in 1080p, if only there's any way to play this game in 1080p right now

ILive  +   536d ago
Actually, its more than just 1080p. Her face as totally been remodeled, making her look more realistic. Everything looks different from the trailer they showed. You can tell its not just some port. I would say it looks better than the pc version because it has only the Tress thing, but better character models as well. I am aware of your sarcasm now, though. But its too late.

KingTrash  +   536d ago
I may actually buy it again. It's that good.
SageHonor  +   536d ago
Completely rebuilt? Sounds good. I'll pick this up. Never got to play the original version.
AceBlazer13  +   536d ago
glad for this now i don't have to buy it for ps3.
mochachino  +   536d ago
Great, now do GTA5

jacksjus  +   536d ago
Good game but we've played this already this year. I don't see how this is exciting. Why not completely build a sequel?
KYU2130  +   536d ago
As far as i know they are doing a second tomb raider game that follows after this one.
d0r1en0  +   536d ago
Have it for 360. The multiplayer was fun. Doubt I'll pick it up for PS4.
JediDiah  +   536d ago
Laura looked too much like Jennifer Lawrance rip off.

Looks like a good PS+ addition.
Trekster_Gamer  +   535d ago
As much as I loved this on my 360 I can't see paying full price for a prettier game. They need some sort of trade up option!!
LordDhampire  +   535d ago
Great Game, definitly will buy
mediate-this  +   535d ago
Japanese way of business
purp13m0nk3y  +   535d ago
Joy! I'm yet to play this on current gen (woops, old gen now!) So I was thrilled when they announced this.
johny5  +   535d ago
I knew it was going to have tress FX 2.0

I'll gladly purchase this.
Shakengandulf  +   535d ago
Certainly going to pick this up, haven't tried tomb raider yet.
stuntman_mike  +   535d ago
I'm hoping for the bikini edition like they promised.
hankmoody  +   535d ago
I'll probably get this if it's priced right. No way am I dropping $60+ on this.
Maxor  +   535d ago
We all know what to do. Rent it.
BLAKHOODe  +   535d ago
Great game, but with so much other stuff out there right now, I have no desire to revisit it just yet. Plus, the game ran a bit too long. Normally that's not an issue, but at a certain point that I thought the game was done and over, I realize I was only halfway through it and the 2nd half wasn't as well done as the 1st half.
chasegarcia  +   535d ago
Nice to see the pc version released. I kid, I kid, but, damn 60$? least make it $40.

tawak  +   535d ago
$60?!! For a recycle game! I'll love this game but I'll will probably wait.
Akuma2K  +   535d ago
I'm definitely picking this up, been a tombraider fan since PS1 and never played the PS3 version of this game but now i'll have it for my PS4.
ExitToExisT  +   535d ago
I already played the definitive edition on March 2013. (1080p, high res textures, aa, tressfx...)
