Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will not come as a PC upgrade

Monday, 6th January 2014 15:52 GMT By Dave Cook

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition brings a wealth of previously PC-only features and tech to PS4 and Xbox One, but it looks like PC owners won’t be getting the extra bells and whistles that come with it.

Some players had hoped that Crystal Dynamics would offer existing owners of the PC version a free upgrade to the Definitive Edition, but as it happens they won’t be getting the new lick of paint being offered to PS4 and Xbox One owners.

It was confirmed in a Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition FAQ, which stressed the game, “was designed and rebuilt from the ground up for next-generation consoles,” and added, “At this time a PC update is not planned.”

The game will hit PS4 and Xbox One on January 28 but stay tuned for my interview with Crystal Dynamics about what, exactly, is new about it.

    But does it have features that the existing PC version doesn’t have?

    This’ll just encourage people to pull the game open and mod the content in, if it’s deemed worth the effort to do. They might as well have people pay them for the extras, instead.

    Meh… Been there, done that. A little indignant, of course, but I’ve already played through it and the Definitive Edition doesn’t bring anything new to the table, story-wise i.e., so I’ll be skipping it. Thank you!

    Wouldn’t surprise me if it got ported to PC down the line, though, as Nixxes did the PS4 port (according to their site). Hopefully, it won’t be another Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director’s Cut-situation. Was even Nixxes involved at all? Anyway, I digress.

    Is Squeenix hoping to squeeze more money out of the new console owners because the pre-Definitive Edition didn’t reach the 7 million sales projection? I can’t help but to wonder…
