Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will release on PlayStation 4 on October 11th. Nearly a year after it released on Xbox One. This special edition will feature the base game, a new story chapter titled “Blood Ties” which will have VR support, co-op gameplay under the name Endurance, all of the DLC released up until now, extra outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards. There will also be an artbook within the Limited Edition version of the game.
“The studio is celebrating with all Tomb Raider fans, thanking them for being on Lara’s 20 year journey with us,” said Scot Amos, co-Head of Studio at Crystal Dynamics. “The team has packed in surprises, new story, and the top-requested special features into this 20 Year Celebration edition.”
The new Blood Ties mission takes place in Croft Manor where Lara has to find proof that she is the rightful heir to the estate. If she doesn’t then she’ll lose her birthright and her father’s secrets, whatever they may be. Within this new story DLC is “Lara’s Nightmare.” You’ll play as Lara defending the manor from a zombie invasion. No we are not kidding.
The co-op mode lets gamers raid tombs in the wilderness and sounds a lot like Don’t Starve. The Crystal Dynamic’s press release mentions surviving the harsh elements of day and the lethal threats of night. You will need to collect fuel for fire, food for health, and any resource that can help you hunt or craft. The goal is the survive as long as possible to reach the top of the leaderboards.
