WATCH: The launch trailer for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

January 25th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition hits next-gen consoles on Tuesday, January 28th, and Square Enix and Crystal Dynamics have today released the launch trailer, which you can view below.

It features a number of upgrades to the game, including a new face and head crafted for next-gen, an increase in polygon body density with new sweat, mud and blood material and effects, and Tress FX tech for more realistic hair motion.

In addition you can expect to see an upgrade to the environment as texture resolution has been increased four times, with all in-game characters fully enhanced. Additionally, the environment will react to changes happening around it, with the underbrush reacting as characters move through it and rain piercing searchlight beams.

The Definitive Edition includes all original DLC, a digital version of the Dark Horse comic, a mini art book and developer videos. Those who pre-order the title will also receive a special art book with never-before released concept art.
