Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition improvements detailed

Crystal Dynamics has provided a little more detail on the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition which will be available for PS4 and Xbox one on January 31, 2014.

According to the developer, it'll use the power of the next generation consoles to present an all new Lara model with TRESS FX technology that delivers "realistic hair simulation and motion with every strand being physically active," and reworked Shader and lighting to "showcase the raw physicality of Lara’s journey through sweat, mud, and blood materials and effects."

Here's some of the other improvements:

- The world has been dynamically brought to life using complex physical world simulation on trees, foliage, cloth, weather, lighting and effects
- All texture resolutions have been created at 4x resolution for maximum resolution and detail
- In-game characters, enemies and destructibility have been enhanced for added depth and realism
- Subsurface scattering technology implemented to capture the most physically accurate lighting simulation and deliver a great sense of believability
- Native 1080p gameplay gives outstanding visual fidelity and showcases the beauty of Yamatai in all its high definition glory

The game will also include all previously released downloadable content.

Want to know the downside? Its RRP is £49.99.

So what do you think of that then?

If you have not played this game then fine, but its less than a year old so i would not be buying it.

Ok so basically nothing that the PC version didn't have a year ago? Not really worth it but I can already tell that I'm going to re-buy this game, just to play on my PS4, ¬__¬.

I already own Tomb Raider on PC... but I'll buy the Definitive Edition for my PS4. Because I'm a sucker.

Fantastic game, would be great to have the Xbox One version but not at that bloody price when I already own it for PC and 360. It should be 20-30 quid.

I didn't play this the first time around, so I was happy when they announced the PS4 version. However at £50, it's taking the piss. Was expecting it to be around £30

This is just smart you can call it money grabbing or whatever , but what else do you have to play on your ps4/xboxone In jan? Many will buy this simply because there is nothing else to play and they are done with the games they had at launch or Xmas , they will charge £50 and get away with it
