Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition news coming in December, Square confirms

Wednesday, 20th November 2013 11:28 GMT By Dave Cook

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition was listed for PS4 by Amazon Italy yesterday, and now Square Enix has suggested we keep an eye out for some news next month. Those teasers!

We covered the listing here.

The posting was quickly pulled, but now DualShockershas received a statement from Square on the matter.

It reads, “It’s so hard to keep a secret these days! We appreciate all of the enthusiasm, however we don’t have any details to share just yet. That said, we highly recommend you keep an eye on any major gaming events happening in early December.”

That’ll be the Spike TV VGX awards on December 7 then.

Stay tuned.

Via OXM.

    This was a game I wanted to play before moving on from PS3.

    Now I’ll just play it on PS4 instead. One game gone from the large backlog :’)

    Karl Stewart also hinted at some kinda reveal at the VGXs – which would be the sequel i hope and not just the PC version running on Next gen consoles…

    Although i am looking forward to playing the game again on the PS4.

    They should keep Lara’s new look, way better than the grotesque looking original.

    @11: I agree, Lara’s oversexualization needed to be fixed, it was the only thing about Lara that actually needed and deserved radical change. Unfortunately, the baby got thrown out with the bathwater, and everyone’s too busy pretending an entirely new baby is the same baby.

    Cool. And as someone above mentioned, I hope this pushes Naughty Dog to release the Last of Us with DLC on the PS4.

    Salarta, I’m glad you are here. I care what you think.

    @14 We care what he thinks. He makes valid points on stuff from time to time. We just don’t need it repeated in ten paragraph essays twice a week for months on end. We understood it the first ten times.

    Quit being a dick all the time. It’s even more tedious than his essays.

    On a serious note, this sounds fun and I will probably pick it up at some point (if it launches for XB1). I played it on 360 and loved it, but I didn’t get any DLC.

    There are two types of people when it comes to reboots. Those who love a fresh new take on a beloved story (Star Trek fucking rocks now) and those who hate the purity of the original content being disregarded (why the fuck isn’t William Shatner in this?).

    @ 16: Fair point, although being a dick *is* kinda my USP here…

    I don’t care what he has to say, but it’s his right to say it and I’ll defend him there.

    I don’t think 1996 Lara would fit in with todays graphics, there was nothing wrong with the Anniversary/Legend model they were using before the reboot.
    I hope they teach new Lara how to communicate properly with others, it was ridiculous that the group didn’t tell each other what was going on.

    I think about Tomb Raider and remember exploring ruins, scaling great heights, making death-defying leaps and much more. You think about Tomb Raider and focus on Lara’s body… Who’s the one sexualizing Lara here?

    @22: Exploring ruins, scaling great heights and making death-defying leaps are all a part of the new game though, aren’t they?

    @19: Go fuck yourself ;)

    @14: I don’t mean to be a jerk by saying this, and correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t you at one point say that you were leaving the site because of me? If that’s true then I’m glad you didn’t, because I’m really not worth doing that sort of thing, but it’s the first thing that I wondered about when I saw your reply.

    @15,17: Thanks. Frankly, if the new “Tomb Raider” starred a truly brand new character rather than slapping a familiar name and face on a new character idea, or even if Crystal Dynamics had maintained the real Lara and made sure she remained the primary focus (sans the oversexualization of the past) but also provided the new “Tomb Raider” as an alternate universe spinoff, I probably would’ve been cool with the new “Tomb Raider.” I don’t mind a fresh spin on a familiar character, but I mind when that fresh spin comes in a way meant to throw away all the great qualities of those characters alongside the bad, ESPECIALLY in cases like this one where a lot of people have gone out of their way to bash and misrepresent the proper Lara in order to hype up the new “Lara.” It shows disrespect on multiple fronts while pretending at appreciation.

    The new Star Trek does a lot of new and unexpected things with existing characters, but it doesn’t radically change them in ways that run completely counter to how they’ve been known to be, and Star Trek has always had a great deal of action involved. Rather than Star Trek being turned into a full blown horror movie.
