It’s no doubt Tomb Raider of last year is one of the most talked about games. This new reinvented Tomb Raider has now been remastered for next gen systems Playstation 4 and Xbox One. I recently took a upgrade to Definitive Editon and boy did I love it!
You know the story. Lara Croft craft stranded on an island where she came for exploration is now forced to become a hardened survivor. As Lara, you are fighting the forces of nature alongside the dangerous cults and enemies of the island in one remarkable story and adventure.
Presentation is what this remake is about as well as smoother details. So unlike most reviews I will focus on the new upgraded features of this adventure to give you a quick Short And Simple Review of why Tomb Raider Definitive Edition should be in your next gen library.
Details are sick. The hair, the skin, the facial expressions where already great on PS3 and Xbox 360 on PS4 and Xbox One they are freaking remarkable! There is an all new Lara model with what Square Enix calls TRESS FX technology that delivers realistic hair simulation and motion with every strand. Every detail you can think of have been touched with new textures and lightning effects. The world of Tomb Raider is more realistic and brighter than ever before from the trees, grass, rain, in-game characters, destruction and more in 1080p gameplay.
“’Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition’ is so named as it’s exactly what we’ve custom built for the Xbox One and PlayStation®4 system consoles,” said Crystal Dynamics Executive Producer, Scot Amos. “The new hardware let us finally express the original vision in all of its glory. This was a continued labor of love. We pulled the game apart and rebuilt it with painstaking detail to add enhanced visual storytelling but without changing the award winning tale. The end result is a cinematic living world. We can’t wait for fans and newcomers alike to experience this rebuilt epic adventure.”
If the upgrades aren’t enough how about all of the original downloadable content, plus digital versions of the Dark Horse comic , Final Hours developer content and more.
