Tomb Raider – 20 Years Later
Crystal Dynamics® and Square Enix® continue to celebrate 20 years of Lara Croft®
October 11 will mark the release of the Rise of the Tomb Radier: 20 year Celebration. According to a press release that Square Enix gave us today the game will feature lots of new content with a completely new story called “Blood Ties”. Not only is the new chapter of the game a co-op endurance mode, it will also support Playstation VR. Included in this version will be all previously released DLC content, new outfits, weapons and Expedition Cards. There is also going to be a limited edition art book.
Current Season Pass owners on Xbox One and PC will automatically receive the content for free, and moving forward the existing Season Pass will be updated to include the new content. There is no Season Pass on PlayStation 4, as all of the content is included in the initial release.
“The studio is celebrating with all Tomb Raider® fans, thanking them for being on Lara’s 20 year journey with us,” said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “The team has packed in surprises, new story, and the top-requested special features into this 20 Year Celebration edition.”
In the new story mode you are able to explore Croft Manor while trying to find proof that you are the rightful heir to the Croft throne. The are also introducing a zombie mode called “Lara’s Nightmare” where your mission is to rid the Manor of the evil zombies. The PlayStation VR support allows you to do all of this in the first person.
“This year we celebrate 20 years of the iconic Lara Croft,” said Ron Rosenberg, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “This provided the perfect opportunity for us to deliver a new Tomb Raider experience. With the addition of PlayStation VR support, you can play the world through Lara’s eyes for the first time in franchise history.”
Work together in the new online co-op expansion. You will need to collect resources, hunt your food and make your defenses as you explore tombs during the day and defend yourselves during the night. The new Endurance mode marks the first time a Tomb Raider game has had such a feature. There will be a leader-board, so others will be gunning for your top score.
Beyond the new game mode and in game items there will be some retro items to be had as well. There will be a special classic Lara card pack that will allow you to replay the game using 5 classic skins, including the original model of Lara from 1996. There is also a new “Extreme Survivor” mode where the difficulty is dialed up to 11 and is more brutal then ever. No checkpoints in this bad boy. Scavenge for resources and light a campfire!
