Rise of the Tomb Raider Launching January 28 on PC

by on January 5, 2016

Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have today announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will be available on PC starting January 28, three months after its initial release on Xbox One last November.

The release date was leaked by Amazon France prior to the announcement, somewhat confirming that Rise of the Tomb Raider would be landing on PC way before the PlayStation 4 version, due some time in Q4 of this year. The PC version of the game will support 4K as well as Windows 10. 

“The PC release of Rise of the Tomb Raider continues the positive momentum from our highly successful partnership and collaboration with Microsoft for the launch on Xbox One and Xbox 360,” said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics.

The game will be available for digital download via Steam, the Windows Store, Amazon (US Only) and the Square Enix eStore with a standard price of £39.99. A Collector’s Edition, which includes the Digital Deluxe version of the game, a 12-inch Lara Croft statue, replicas of Lara’s journal and jade necklace, and a steel case, will also be available from the Square Enix e-store for £109.99.

In his review, Adam praised RotTR, saying that it “excels by playing to its strengths and delivering on addictive moment-to-moment gameplay.” Rise of the Tomb Raider will be getting it’s first lot of DLC this month, when the horror-orientated Baba Yaga add-on sees Lara take on the mythical witch of Slavic folklore.

Rise of the Tomb Raider is currently available on Xbox One and Xbox 360.
