Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration hits PlayStation 4 on October 11, 2016. The game includes the full version of last year’s critically acclaimed action-adventure sequel, plus a host of extra content, including PlayStation VR support for the DLC chapter, Blood Ties, a new Endurance co-op mode, and the zombie-focused Lara’s Nightmare. 

Developed by Crystal Dynamics, Rise of the Tomb Raider is the follow-up to 2013’s highly successful series reboot, and sees Lara Croft surviving a harsh mountainous climate while searching for a mythical city. The game was previously released on the Xbox One and PC, and has sold over one million copies to date.

Tomb Raider celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016, having originally launched on the Sega Saturn, PC, and PlayStation back in 1996. The game’s success on PSOne made Lara one of gaming’s most iconic characters, and the brand quickly became synonymous with Sony’s home console throughout the remainder of the 90s.
