Those of you who choose to wield a keyboard and mouse over the trusty controller were probably looking forward to playing Tomb Raider in all of it’s re-skinned and updated glory. Excited to see Lara in a new light with flowy hair, bigger eyes, and fuller face. Sadly, that won’t be happening.
That’s right, Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is a next generation console exclusive. There’s no plans “at this time” to re-boot the PC version of the title which means PC players will have to stick with the Lara Croft us PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 players have grown to love.
In a recent FAQ on the Eidos forums, the developers revealed that PC players won’t be able to “play with the next-gen Lara model” revealing that “Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was designed and rebuilt from the ground up for next-generation consoles. At this time a PC update is not planned.”
Does that leave the door open for an update in the future? Possibly, but highly unlikely. Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is set to launch on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on January 31.
