Square Enix has officially announced that Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will launch on November 5 for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. A Google Stadia release will follow at some point during the same month.
As expected, the re-release will feature the base game plus all seven previously released downloadable content packs. Check out the trailer below.
Square Enix looks set to release a Shadow of the Tomb Raider Definitive Edition, according to a file nabbed from Korea’s Game Rating and Administration Committee’s website. The listing mentions a PC and Xbox One release for the Definitive Edition, but there’s no reason why we shouldn’t see it for PlayStation 4 if it’s the real deal.
Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Definitive Edition Outed
Nothing has been officially confirmed regarding a re-release of Shadow of the Tomb Raider, although it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it saw the light of day. Lara Croft’s latest adventure received some meaty post-launch content via a Season Pass, which would make it an ideal candidate for a Definitive Edition release.
Furthermore, the 2013 Tomb Raider reboot was re-released under the Definitive Edition moniker when it was revamped for current-generation systems, and Rise of the Tomb Raider received a special 20 Year Celebration release featuring a host of additional content when it hit PS4 in 2016.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider was released on PS4, PC, and Xbox One back in September 2018, and brings the curtains down on the origins trilogy that chronicles Lara’s journey from naive archaeologist to a hardened survivor.

Right now, there’s no immediate plans for a new Tomb Raider game, but I can’t imagine Square Enix letting the franchise put its feet up for too long. I imagine whatever new game that comes next will pick up from where Shadow left off, so maybe we’ll finally see Lara wielding her trademark dual pistols; perhaps we’ll even get to revisit some of her classic adventures in reimagined form, too.
The Tomb Raider franchise launched back in 1996 for the Sega Saturn, PC, and PSOne, and has sold over 67 million units worldwide as of 2018.
