PlayStation 4 gamers have been waiting a long time to finally get their hands on Rise of the Tomb Raider, and now Square Enix has confirmed the game’s release date. The game will come to PlayStation 4 on October 11th in a new version of the game called 20 Year Celebration.
This new version of the game will be packing a lot of content, as it includes the main game; a new story chapter that is set in Croft Manor called Blood Ties that is PlayStation VR-compatible; a new expansion to the co-op Endurance mode; a new higher difficulty called Extreme Survivor; additional weapons, outfits and expedition cards; and all previously-released DLC.
Here’s what Square Enix had to say about Blood Ties:
“Blood Ties, a new premium DLC, beckons players to explore Croft Manor in a new story mode; then defend it against a zombie invasion in ‘Lara’s Nightmare.’ When Lara’s uncle contests ownership of the Manor, Lara must explore the estate to find proof that she is the rightful heir, or lose her birthright and father’s secrets for good. Players can then test their zombie-killing skills in the replayable “Lara’s Nightmare” mode: a haunted Croft Manor where players have new challenges and must rid the Manor of an evil presence.”
As for the Endurance mode expansion, it “lets fans raid tombs in a brutal wilderness together. Two players must team up to survive the harsh elements by day, as well as lethal threats from enemies by night. Fire takes fuel, food restores health, and every resource must be hunted, collected, or crafted. Battle to the top of the leaderboards, as others try to beat your longest survival run.”
There will also be a new Lara card pack that will allow gamers to play the game will five classic Lara Croft skins. All of this new content will also be coming to Xbox One and PC, with Season Pass owners getting the content when the game launches.
