Rise of the Tomb Raider is finally coming to PlayStation 4 this fall

Will add zombie mission, VR support

Rise of the Tomb Raider, the second game in the rebooted Tomb Raider franchise, is coming to PlayStation 4 on Oct. 11. It will be a special edition titled Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration, and will include the game with all of its downloadable content, in addition to a new mission, new modes and other extras.

The game's new mission, called "Blood Ties," will have players defend Lara Croft’s mansion from an onslaught of zombies. It will also feature support for PlayStation VR and allow players to play as Lara through a first-person perspective for the first time in franchise history.

20 Year Celebration will also add an optional higher difficulty level to the story mode, bring online co-op to the game’s survival mode "Endurance" and include new outfits and character models for Lara that span the franchise’s history.

The content added with 20 Year Celebration will also be available for Xbox One and Windows PC, but VR support will be exclusive to PlayStation 4. Rise of the Tomb Raider was initially exclusive to Xbox platforms when it was released in November of last year, and the Windows PC version followed a few months later. The game was announced for a holiday 2016 release on PS4 last year.
