Square Enix has just announced that Rise of the Tomb Raider will release on October 11th for PS4. The Ultimate Rise of the Tomb Raider experience adds PSVR support and will feature tons of additional content.

Earlier this week we already reported that Rise of the Tomb Raider was likely to release for PS4 this October, although this rumor hadn’t been officially confirmed.

The official Square Enix press release reads as follows:

Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will include the award-winning Rise of the Tomb Raider® game, a completely new story chapter entitled “Blood Ties”, new co-op Endurance gameplay, PlayStation VR support for “Blood Ties”, all of the previously released DLC, more outfits, weapons, and Expedition Cards.  The Limited Edition of the game will also feature a limited edition art book.

With the exception of VR support, all of the new content in Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration will also be available for Xbox One and PC players. Current Season Pass owners on Xbox One and PC will automatically receive the content for free, and moving forward the existing Season Pass will be updated to include the new content. There is no Season Pass on PlayStation 4, as all of the content is included in the initial release.

“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.”


One of the most interesting features of Rise of the Tomb Raider for the PS4, is PSVR support. According to Crystal Dynamics studio head, Ron Rosenberg, the 20th anniversary of Tomb Raider “provided the perfect opportunity for us to deliver a new Tomb Raider experience. With the addition of PlayStation VR support, you can play the world through Lara’s eyes for the first time in franchise history.”
