No discount for upgrading existing Tomb Raider to Definitive Edition

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will cost $59.99 regardless of whether you own a copy of the existing game — publisher Square Enix won't be offering an upgrade discount, according to an FAQ for the Definitive Edition.

"Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is not participating in an upgrade program. The game will retail for $59.99 in North America. Check with your local retailer for price points across Europe," reads the FAQ.

Square Enix also confirmed that save games for the original version of 2013's Tomb Raider will not be compatible with the Definitive Edition. New content in the updated game includes a redesigned Lara Croft character model with additional detail; native 1080p resolution on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One; and various platform-specific features such as support for Kinect and PlayStation Vita Remote Play.

According to Square Enix, an update to add the content to the Windows PC version of the original game is "not planned" at this time.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition, which was announced during VGX 2013, will be released Jan. 28 in North America and Jan. 31 in Europe. For more details, check out our interview with Square Enix about the re-release.
