Rise of the Tomb Raider PS4 includes a PSVR chapter when it launches

On 11th October.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will include a new chapter featuring PlayStation VR support when it finally launches for PS4 on 11th October.


The game originally arrived for Xbox One as a controversial timed-exclusive last December. It got a generally positive reception, although in the meantime, the PS4 has seen Uncharted 4 launch and lap up all the critical glory.

Still, Square Enix is doing its best to make the PS4 version of the game an attractive purchase. Porting has been handled by well-respected studio Nixxes, for one. But there's a wealth of other new content too:

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, as it has been dubbed, will contain the aforementioned new chapter, named Blood Ties, which can be played with or without a PlayStation VR. It also includes new online co-op Endurance gameplay, more outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards plus all of the previously released DLC. There's also an even harder Extreme Survivor difficulty, with all automatic checkpoints stripped out.

PC and Xbox One players will have to pay up to get Blood Ties, unless they have the season pass.

The DLC sees Lara's uncle contest ownership of Croft Manor, which prompts Lara to go rummage around the old pile for proof she is its rightful heir. Oh, and a zombie invasion mode, Lara's Nightmare. Because why not.

Finally - and this one is funny - you'll be able to play the game via five classic Lara Croft models from games over the years. Which means you can actually do this:


Is that enough to tempt you?
